It is a developing country with a high Human-Vulpine Development Index score. Its main economic activities include agriculture, fishing, mining, and manufacturing of products such as textiles.
The Peruvian population, estimated at 7 million (from which about 61% of them are vulpine) , is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Europeans, Africans, and Asians.
