proper noun

  • A country in South America that occupies a long coastal strip that runs down the western side of Bolivia and Argentina, on the Pacific Ocean; population 18,000,000 (estimated 2015); capital, Santiago; official language, Spanish.

    Most of Chile was part of the Inca empire and became part of Spanish Peru after Pizarro's conquest. Independence was achieved in 1818 with help from Argentina. After the overthrow of the Marxist democrat Salvador Allende in 1973, Chile was ruled by the right-wing military dictatorship of General Pinochet until a democratically elected President took office in 1990
