Pecario, officially known as known officially in Iverican as La República de Pecario, concisely as the Republic of Pecario, and informally as Pecario, is a sovereign state in Alharu on Eurth. It is bordered on the South by Manamana. The seat of government is Santa Borbones, which contains the executive, legislative, and electoral branches of government,it is also the constitutional capital and the seat of the judiciary. The largest city and principal industrial center is Valleluz.

The sovereign state of Pecario is a constitutionally unitary state, divided into nine departments. Its geography varies from the peaks of the Cordillera del Sol in the North, to the eastern lowlands. A third of the country is in the mountain range. The country's population, estimated at 22 million, is multi-ethnic, including natives, mestizos and europans (mainly Ivericans). Iverican is the official and predominant language, although 36 indigenous languages also have official status, the most commonly spoken of which are quepec, aymaro and guaruma.

The history of Pecario begins with the dominance of the Tuachec Empire in the 15th century, followed by the Iverican conquest in the 17th century. After uprisings, the country gained independence in 1753. The 19th century was marked by political instability, but also by progress in education and civil rights. In the 20th century, periods of military control alternated with democratic governments, seeking to combat corruption and inflation. In 2002, an unprecedented economic crisis struck, leading to the resignation of President Eduardo Chapo. Luis Mesa came to power in 2006, ushering in a calmer period until 2019. The Santa Polvo Cartel emerged in 2010, taking control of the drug trade leading to a drug war. President Mesa will resign in 2019 after a scandal related to the Santa Polvo cartel, he will be replaced by Andreas Lineria. Today the country is one of the most corrupt state in the wurld, the government of Presidente Lineria is completely under the orders of the cartel and pretends not seeing the recurring massacres in the country. In 2020, the country was classified as a Narco-State due to the Pecarian government turning a blind eye towards drug cartels. Today, Pecario is plagued by corruption and violence related to drug trafficking.


According to legend, centuries ago, before the formation of the country we know today as Pecario, the lands were inhabited by indigenous tribes. Among these tribes, there was a particularly respected and influential group that worshipped a sacred animal: the "Pecario".

The Pecario is an emblematic animal of the region, a rare and mysterious creature, similar to a wild boar but with distinctive features. Its presence is considered a sign of fertility and prosperity for indigenous communities. The ancients considered the pecario as the guardian of forests, rivers and mountains, and they attached great spiritual importance to him. When the Iberic conquerors arrived in the area, they were intrigued by the stories of this sacred animal. They began naming the area after this legendary being, "Pecario," in homage to its deep cultural significance and importance to indigenous peoples.

Thus, the name "Pecario" became the symbol of the connection between the past and the present, a reminder of the cultural roots of this fictitious nation, rooted in respect for nature and the harmonious coexistence between man and the earth.


Prehistory and Tuachec period

The earliest evidences of human presence in Pecarian territory have been dated to approximately 12,000 BCE. Pecarian societies were based on agriculture, using techniques such as irrigation and terracing; camelid husbandry and fishing were also important.

The area now known as Pecario had been occupied for over 2,500 years when the Guaruma arrived. However, the present-day Guaruma are associated with the ancient civilization of the Guaruma Empire which had its capital at Guaruma, in the east of Pecario. The capital city of Guaruma dates from as early as 1500 BC when it was a small village based on agriculture. The Guaruma community grew to urban proportions between 700 CE and 900 CE, becoming an important regional power in Mesothalassa. As the rainfall decreased, the surplus of food decreased, and thus the amount available to underpin the power of the elites. Guaruma disappeared around 1000 AD. The area remained uninhabited for centuries thereafter. They carved into rocks many petroglyphs throughout the country, notably those located in Guarpo.

A petroglyph at Guarpo dating from around 1000 CE.

Traces of Sjådska presence dating back to 320 BC on the banks of Manamana Bay attest to an active passage of this people. No physical structure has been discovered, but the discovery of an Útskip wreck near Marelia suggests that the Sjådska used the bay for trading and travel. It is likely that they traded and maintained good relations with the tribes present in the territory.

In the 14th century, the Tuachec Empire emerged as a powerful state which, in the span of a century, formed the largest empire in Mesothalassa with their capital in Tualcacán. The Tuachec of Tualcacán originally represented one of the small and relatively minor ethnic groups, the Quepec. Gradually, as early as the thirteenth century, they began to expand and incorporate their neighbors. Tuachec expansion was slow until about the middle of the fifteenth century, when the pace of conquest began to accelerate, particularly under the rule of the emperor Viracocha. Under his rule and that of his son, Yama Cápac, the Tuachec came to control most of the region of modern Pecario, with a population of 10 to 15 million inhabitants under their rule. Cápac also promulgated a comprehensive code of laws to govern his empire, while consolidating his absolute temporal and spiritual authority as the God of the Moon. The official language of the empire was Quepec, although hundreds of local languages and dialects were spoken. The Tuachec leadership encouraged the worship of Quilla, the moon god and imposed its sovereignty above other cults.The Tuachec considered their King, the Vagra Tuachec, to be the "child of the moon". We also owe them the Tuachec roads, a vast road network linking the regions of the empire to the capital city. It served as an economic and political integrative axis.

Conquest and colonial period (1630-1712)

De Montega Seizing Viracocha IV.

When Viracocha IV, the last Vagra Tuachec, became emperor in 1629, he inherited an empire weakened by a long famine and divided by quarrels of bellicose nobles. In October 1630, Stillian conquistador Diego de Montega landed with his men on the coast of Pecario. He is one of the migrants who are part of the Gran Viatge fleeing the Iberic Empire. He quickly founded a first city named Puerto Montega and then helped by rebellious Tuachec nobles he defeated and captured Emperor Viracocha IV at the Battle of Tawantinsuyo. After years of preliminary exploration and military conflicts, it was the first step in a long campaign that took decades of fighting but ended in iberic victory and colonization of the region known as the Kingdom of Pecario with its capital at Santa Borbones, The conquest of Pecario led to spin-off campaigns throughout the country as well as expeditions to quell native resistance. The last Tuachec resistance was suppressed when the Iberican annihilated the Neo-Tuachec State in Tuyuq Wasi in 1652.

The Indigenous population was dramatically affected after the fall of the Tuachec Empire. They were subjected to severe persecution by the colonizers. The natives endured numerous unjustified massacres, land and resource dispossession, as well as intense economic exploitation, particularly through the encomienda system. These combined factors led to a rapid decline in the indigenous population, weakening individuals physically, disrupting their social and economic systems, and introducing destabilizing psychological and cultural pressures. By 1730, the indigenous population was recorded at 5 million compared to approximately 14 million in 1640.

La Gran Peregrinación

The fall of the Tuachec Empire led to a significant political upheaval that reverberated beyond borders and into Alharu. Some settlers extolled, through texts and letters addressed to the Iberic Empire, the discovery of new fertile and accessible lands. This resulted in several waves of migration to the kingdom of Pecario, particularly in the years 1645 and 1650, where the influx of settlers was so significant that some cities had to turn people away. As the mayor of Valleluz, Pedro Alcazar de Guantaneo, wrote in 1647: "Thus, we saw a moving tide arriving, pressing at the gates of the city. The soldiers struggled to contain them. Women, children, and men eagerly awaited the opportunity to settle and cultivate the vast surrounding lands. There was, of course, a sense of disdain from the "old" settlers towards the newcomers. A man remains a man even in the face of his peers."

Thus, the population of settlers quadrupled within 30 years. By 1700, the Iberic population was estimated at 800,000, and it continued to climb until stabilizing in the mid-20th century. In the 1670s, king Francisco Perez reorganized the country with gold and silver mining as its main economic activity and Native forced labor as its primary workforce. With the discovery of the great silver and gold lodes at San Marañón, the kingdom flourished as an important provider of mineral resources. With the conquest started the spread of Tacolism; most people were forcefully converted to Tacolism, with Iberic clerics believing that the Native Peoples "had been corrupted by the Devil". It only took a generation to convert the population. They built churches in every city and replaced some of the Tuachec temples with churches, such as the Qoli Tempe in the city of Santa Borbones. The church employed the Inquisition, making use of torture to ensure that newly converted Tacolics did not stray to other religions or beliefs, and monastery schools, educating girls, especially of the Tuachec nobility and upper class. Pecarian Tacolism follows the syncretism, in which religious native rituals have been integrated with Tacolic celebrations.In this endeavor, the church came to play an important role in the acculturation of the Natives, drawing them into the cultural orbit of the Iberic settlers.

Conquest (1687-1689)

The Kingdom of Lysia, drawn by the riches that the Iberics had discovered, sent colonists to Mesothalassa. This expedition led to the establishment of the colony of Côte d'Émeraude in 1637 to the East of the newly founded Kingdom of Pecario. Pecario, concerned about the emergence of potential competitors in the region, began expanding eastward to block and exert pressure on the Lysian colony.

A conflict erupted in 1687, and the war turned in favor of Pecario, eventually leading to the conquest of the lysian colony's capital, Saint-Louis, in 1688. The colony was finally fully conquered in 1689, and it was incorporated into the kingdom. The two sides signed the Treaty of Saint-Louis which led to the full incorporation of the Lysian colony into the kingdom.

Recolonization (1712-1752)

In the 18th century, the kingdom sought to reconnect with its roots and contact was made with the First Iveric Republic. The various internal struggles for the position of king of Pecario had greatly weakened the country and threatened to cause its to collapse. After multiple discussions with Iverica, it was decided that the kingdom would be rearranged into a semi-autonomous corregimientos of the Republic. The Treaty of Gorgia of 1717 allowed Pecario to find himself guided by a well-established and stable state. The treaty allowed many Iveric immigrants to settle in the colony, resulting in a significant demographic and economic boom. The conquest and colony brought a mix of cultures and ethnicities that did not exist before the Stillians conquered the Pecarian territory. Even though many of the Tuachec traditions were lost or diluted, new customs, traditions and knowledge were added, creating a rich mixed Pecarian culture. One of the most important Indigenous rebellions against the Iberics were that of Juan Santos Viracocha in 1732.

Independence (1752-1760)

The history of Pecario's independence is marked by a series of complex and tumultuous events that led to the break with the Iverican government. In the mid-18th century, a civil War broke out in Iverica, resulting in a significant decline in the central government's authority over its colonies, including Pecario. Taking advantage of this period of instability in Iverica, the Pecarian leaders began to claim their autonomy and seek to free themselves from the Iveric authority. Tensions increased between the loyalists, who supported the maintenance of Iveric control, and the separatists who aspired to national autonomy.

In 1752, faced with pressure from independence movements and due to the civil war, the Iveric government decided to withdraw peacefully from its colonies, including Pecario. The Treaty of Soledad formalized the country's independence.

However, despite the peaceful withdrawal of the Iverican government, tensions remain between the loyalists and the separatists. The loyalists refused to recognize the treaty, arguing that the political situation in Iverica rendered the signing null and void. The loyalists accused the separatists of traitors to the Republic and took up arms. The first clash took place in Santa Borja in February 1753. The separatists, led by General Andres Torres, won a crucial victory that strengthened their determination.

After the battle, the loyalist forces entrenched themselves in the north in the mountains of the Cordillera del Sol, leaving the precious resources to the separatists. The loyalists will use the mountainous terrain to create guerrilla warfare and harass enemy soldiers. In 1756 the Siege of Santa Polvo, a strategically important city held by the Loyalists, took place. The separatist forces, under the command of Ricardo Morales, besieged the city for several months before liberating it from the enemy forces. In 1756, Ricardo Morales was defeated and killed in Juago by loyalist troops. In 1760 the Battle of Valle Verde took place, a decisive battle in the mountainous region of Valle Verde. The pro-independence forces, led by General Antonio Torres and Diego Ramirez, won a resounding victory that swept away the last loyalist pockets.

In August 1760, the Treaty of Bochines was ratified between loyalist and separatist representatives signing the end of the War of Independence and officially forming the Republic of Pecario. General Antonio Torres, hero of the War of Independence, is voted to be the first president of the newly founded country. He will become the most popular Pecarian national hero to this day. In 1766 the Treaty of Soledad was resigned at Santa Borbones by Iverica after the end of the Iverican Civil War, putting an official end to the colonial era of Pecario and calming for good the ardour of the last loyalists.

20th century: political instability and coups d’état

The decline in demand for silver and the early labor struggles caused by poor working conditions created a climate of social and political instability during the 1920s in Pecario. President Alonzo Dominguez initiated social reforms and enacted the Constitution of 1924. However, the global economic crisis of 1927 plunged Pecario into recession and social unrest. Governments changed frequently, accompanied by coup d'états. Marco Vanges del Lonto became the de facto president in 1929, suspending elections and governing by decrees, while sending his rival Axel Mayordomo to prison on the Alcazara archipelago, who had participated in the coup d'état of 1928 with him. The poor economic policies and measures taken to mitigate the effects of the global economic crisis had dramatic consequences on the country's mining production, leading to an economic crisis during which Pecario experienced a severe economic downturn.

Vanges resigned in 1934, and political instability intensified with a coup d'état that gave rise to the socialist republic of Pecario, which lasted only eight days before Alonzo Dominguez regained power and stabilized the economy. Alonzo's return helped reduce tensions between political parties. There was also a social crisis; new actors demanded transformations in the way the country was governed. Joaquin Aguirre Cedillo was elected president in 1938 through an alliance opposing the ruling elite. Social and political reforms made Pecario one of the most advanced countries in terms of legislation and social protection. Lithium gradually replaced silver in the national economy (due to global demand). The country industrialized gradually, and the number of workers increased.

The government of Joaquin Aguirre Cedillo achieved various changes, mainly economic, by laying the foundations for Pecario's industrialization through the creation of ONPDPP (National Organization for the Development of Pecario's Production). However, it led to a period of radicalism. Reforms abruptly stopped with the president's death in November 1942. Oriol Díez, with the support of the Communist Party, was elected President.

Governement of Oriol Díez

The economic results of Díez's first year in power appear quite satisfactory: GDP initially progresses strongly, unemployment and inflation decrease; however, the success is deceptive. The following two years will be catastrophic. Inflation explodes, GDP contracts, and the value of the Pecarian currency plummets. The overly expansionary monetary policy is largely responsible for these results, exacerbated by the destabilization of the economy by opponents. The government tries to stem the crisis by fixing commodity prices, which leads to the development of the black market and shortages.

Díez also attempts to gain active support from the population; workers' militias are formed in cities and countryside to maintain the revolutionary legitimacy of the government. Conservative opposition and Christian Democrats mobilize in turn. They organize or contribute to a series of revolts and demonstrations that paralyze the country. At the same time, there is a rise in power of clandestine far-right paramilitary groups. On March 19, 1971, President Díez appoints Arturo Gómez as the Chief General of the Armed Forces following the resignation of Juan de Penezio.

21st Century

In more recent times, Pecario has faced some challenges to its democratic institutions. In 2003, President Juan El Chapo faced a severe economic crisis that led to mass protests and his eventual resignation. In 2006, President Luis Mesa came to power, bringing a period of relative calm and stability.

In 2019, Pecario experienced a notable shift in its political landscape when the government of President Luis Mesa faced widespread protests and accusations of corruption. Mesa resigned from office, and a period of political uncertainty followed. Jeanine Áñez, a former senator, assumed the role of acting President, temporarily leading the country until new elections could be held.

In 2020, Pecario held presidential elections, resulting in the election of President Andreas Lineria, who took office later that year. Lineria's presidency has been characterized by efforts to address corruption, promote social reforms, and strengthen the nation's economy.

On 14 August 2023, Pecario was admitted to the Entente of Oriental States as a full member (the country had previously been an observer since December 2017).

The geography of the country exhibits a great variety of terrain and climates. Pecario has a high level of biodiversity considered one of the greatest in the world, as well as several ecoregions with ecological sub-units such as the Meseta, dry valleys, and the Llanuras, which is a tropical savanna. These areas feature enormous variations in altitude, from an elevation of 9,500 meters (31,168 ft) above sea level in Pico del Alba to nearly 70 meters (230 ft).

Pecario can be divided into three physiographic regions:

  • The Cordillera region in the north spans 34% of the national territory. It contains some of the highest spots in all of Eurth such as the Pico del Alba, with an altitude of 8,900 meters (106,800 ft), and the Pico Nevado, at 8,750 meters (105,000 ft). Also in this region that are the Meseta and the Luminar Salt Flats, which is the largest salt flat in the wurld and an important source of lithium.
  • The Sub-Cordillera region in the center and south of the country is an intermediate region between the Meseta and the Pampas (plain); this region comprises 17% of the territory of Pecario. It is distinguished by its farming activities and its temperate climate.
  • The Pampas region in the south comprises 49% of the territory. It is located to the South of the Cordillera del Sol. It is a region of flat land and small plateaus, all covered by extensive dry forests containing enormous biodiversity.

The geology of Pecario includes a variety of different lithologies as well as tectonic and sedimentary environments. The country lies at the end of the Aurelia plate and borders caused by Tiauhain plate and the Paran plate. This can cause major earthquakes and Pecario has already suffered violent earthquakes during its history, the most recent being that of 2003 which killed more than 2000 people.


The climate of Pecario varies drastically from one eco-region to the other, from the tropics in the south to a polar climate in the north. The summers are warm, humid in the east and dry in the west, with rains that often modify temperatures, humidity, winds, atmospheric pressure and evaporation, yielding very different climates in different areas.Winters are very cold in the west, and it snows in the mountain ranges, while in the southern regions, windy days are more common.

Pecario's variable altitudes, allow for a vast biologic diversity. Within this geographic area there are several natural parks and reserves such as the Parque Nacional del Sol Eterno, Reserva Costera del Coral, Parque Nacional de Los Picos Nevados, and the Reserva del Luminar, among others.

Pecario boasts over 15,000 species of seed plants, including over 1,100 species of fern, 1,300 species of marchantiophyta and moss, and at least 700 species of fungus. In addition, there are more than 2,500 species of medicinal plants. Pecario is considered the place of origin for such species as peppers and chili peppers, peanuts, the common beans, yucca, and several species of palm. Pecario also naturally produces over 3,000 kinds of potatoes.

Pecario has more than 2,700 animal species, including 380 mammals, over 1,100 birds , 196 amphibians, 263 reptiles, and 625 fish, in addition there are more than 2,800 types of butterfly, and more than 55 domestic animals.

Environmental policy

A Ministry of Environment and Water was created in 2006 after the election of Luis Mesa in 2006. The presence of the Santa Polvo cartel represents a significant challenge for Pecario's environmental policy. The cartel is deeply involved in drug trafficking, including cocaine, which lead to environmental degradation and damage to the country's fragile ecosystems. The cartel's illegal activities, such as deforestation to grow coca crops, pollution generated by drug processing, and the dumping of chemicals into the wild, damage Pecario's biodiversity and natural resources.

In addition, corruption and conflicts related to the cartel is weakening conservation efforts and the implementation of effective environmental policies. The pecarian government is relying on public awareness and education on the harmful consequences of drug trafficking on the environment.

Largest cities and towns

Approximately 67,55% of Pecarians live in urban area. Nevertheless, the rate of urbanization is growing steadily, at around 2.2% annually. According to the 2016 census in Pecario, there are a total of 2,158,691 households. In 2010, 73.4% of dwellings were classified as house or hut; 4.3% were apartments; 21.1% were rental residences; and 0.1% were mobile homes. Most of the country's largest cities are located in the highlands of the western and central regions of Pecario.



Palacio Esmeralda is the official home and principal workplace of the President of Pecario.

The government of Pecario takes place within the framework of a participatory democratic presidential republic, as established by the Constitution of 1990. In accordance with the principle of the separation of powers, the government is divided into three branches: the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch.

As the head of the executive branch, the President of Pecario serves as both the head of state and the head of government, followed by the Vice President and the Council of Ministers. The president is elected through a popular vote to serve a single four-year term and governs from the Presidential Palace, colloquially known as the Emerald Palace (Palacio Esmeralda) located in Santa Borbones. At the provincial level, executive power is vested in department governors, municipal mayors, and local administrators for smaller administrative subdivisions. All regional elections are held one year and five months after the presidential election.

The legislative branch is represented nationally by the Congress, a bicameral institution consisting of a 155-seat Chamber of Representatives and a 100-seat Senate. The Senate is elected nationally, and the Chamber of Representatives is elected in electoral districts. Members of both houses are elected to serve four-year terms, two months before the president, also through a popular vote.

The judicial branch is led by four high courts, including the Supreme Court, which deals with criminal and civil matters, the Council of State, with a special responsibility for administrative law and also providing legal advice to the executive, the Constitutional Court, responsible for ensuring the integrity of the Pecarian Constitution, and the Superior Council of the Magistracy, responsible for overseeing the judicial branch. Unfortunately, this sector has long suffered from issues of corruption and inefficiency. In an effort to address these challenges and reform the judicial system, the government has made revisions to the Constitution in 1996, followed by enacting further laws. Additionally, the government has taken steps to decentralize power, granting more autonomy to departments, municipalities, and indigenous territories. The judiciary in Pecario encompasses the Supreme Court of Justice, the Plurinational Constitutional Court, the Judiciary Council, the Agrarian and Environmental Court, and District and lower courts.

Pecario has experienced a diverse political landscape throughout its history, marked by periods of democratic governance and occasional challenges to its stability. Since gaining independence in 1752, the nation has been governed by various forms of government, including democratically elected leaders and periods of authoritarian rule.

In the early years of Pecario's independence, there were internal conflicts and power struggles, leading to a brief period of civil unrest. However, by the early 1800s, the nation established a tradition of peaceful transfers of power between different political parties, contributing to a relatively stable democratic system. The political scene in Pecario has been characterized by the presence of multiple parties vying for power. Over the years, parties such as the Nationalist Independence Party, the Pecarian Democratic Movement, and the Freedom Coalition have held significant influence in the presidency and the parliament.

In more recent times, Pecario has faced some challenges to its democratic institutions. In 2003, President Juan El Chapo faced a severe economic crisis that led to mass protests and his eventual resignation. In 2006, President Luis Mesa came to power, bringing a period of relative calm and stability.

In 2019, Pecario experienced a notable shift in its political landscape when the government of President Luis Mesa faced widespread protests and accusations of corruption. Mesa resigned from office, and a period of political uncertainty followed. Jeanine Áñez, a former senator, assumed the role of acting President, temporarily leading the country until new elections could be held.

In 2020, Pecario held presidential elections, resulting in the election of President Andreas Lineria, who took office later that year. Lineria's presidency has been characterized by efforts to address corruption, promote social reforms, and strengthen the nation's economy.


Pecario has its constitutionally recognized capital in Santa Borbones. Santa Borbones was proclaimed the provisional capital of the newly Kingdom of Pecario on 8 September 1632. The 2009 Constitution assigns the role of national capital to Santa Borbones. In addition to being the constitutional capital, the Supreme Court of Pecario is located in Santa Borbones, making it the judicial capital. Furthermore, the Palacio Esmeralda (the Presidential Palace and seat of Pecarian executive power) is located in Santa Borbones, as are the National Congress and Plurinational Electoral Organ.

Foreign relations

At the international level, Pecario aims to strengthen its relations with other countries of the world, especially those with similar interests in sustainable development, environmental protection and the promotion of human rights. Due to its history and natural wealth, Pecario also attracts the attention of foreign investors and business partners. Pecario's government seeks to encourage foreign investment while protecting national interests and ensuring that foreign companies operate in accordance with the country's laws and regulations.

Despite its efforts to promote positive relations with other countries, Pecario also faces challenges internationally, including issues related to security, drug trafficking and corruption. These issues influence relations with certain countries, but the Pecarian government is trying to resolve them through dialogue and cooperation.


The Pecarian military comprises three branches: Ejército (Army), Naval (Navy) and Fuerza Aérea (Air Force). The Pecarian army has around 31,500 men. There are six military regions in the army. The army is organized into ten divisions. The Pecarian Naval Force (Fuerza Naval Pecariana in Iberic) is a naval force about 10,000 strong in 2008. The Pecarian Air Force ('Fuerza Aérea Pecariana' or "FAP") has nine air bases, located at Santa Borbones, San Rafael, Santa Lucía, Ciudad del Sol, Nueva Estrella and Valleluz.

The Pecarian Army provides a unique example of the transformation of a military leadership into a civilian political elite, simultaneously transferring the power base from the military to a civilian state. The transformation was brought about during the years of dictatorships in the 20th century. The Pecarian Armed Forces are administered by the Secretariat of National Defense (Secretaria de Defensa Nacional, SEDENA). There are two branches: the Pecarian Army (which includes the Pecarian Air Force) and the Pecarian Navy. The Secretariat for Public Security and Civil Protection has jurisdiction over La Vanguardia, which was formed in 2019 from the disbanded Federal Police and Army and Navy Military Police.

The Pecarian Armed Forces maintain significant infrastructure, including facilities for design, research, and testing of weapons, vehicles, aircraft, naval vessels, defense systems and electronics; military industry manufacturing centers for building such systems, and advanced naval dockyards that build heavy military vessels and advanced missile technologies. Since the 1990s, when the military escalated its role in the war on drugs, increasing importance has been placed on acquiring airborne surveillance platforms, aircraft, helicopters, digital war-fighting technologies, urban warfare equipment and rapid troop transport.

Law and order

The Pecarian Federal Police was disbanded in 2018 by a constitutional amendment during the administration of President Luis Mesa and La Vanguardia was created, merging units from the Federal Police, Military Police and Naval Police. Andreas Lineria increasingly uses military forces to enforce national law, particularly against drug cartels. Serious abuses of power have been reported during security operations in the north of the country and in indigenous communities and poor urban neighborhoods. Most Pecarians have low trust in the police or the justice system and as a result few crimes are actually reported by citizens. There have been public outrages against what is seen as a culture of impunity.


Pecario has a high crime rate due to being a center for the cultivation and trafficking of cocaine. In a country where state capacity has always been weak in some regions, the result has been a grinding war on multiple fronts, with the civilian population caught in the crossfire and often deliberately targeted for "collaborating". Human rights advocates blame paramilitaries for massacres, "disappearances", and cases of torture and forced displacement. Rebel groups are behind assassinations, kidnapping and extortion. Crime and human rights violations in Pecario have been criticized, including enforced disappearances (kidnappings), extrajudicial killings, gender-based violence, especially femicide, and attacks on journalists and human rights defenders. the man.

A 2020 report gives statistics on crime in Pecario, with 7.7 million households having at least one victim of crime. As of May 2022, 20,000 people are officially missing, most since 2008 when President Mesa tried to stop the drug cartels. Drug cartels remain a major problem in Pecario, with a proliferation of small cartels and the increasing use of more sophisticated military equipment and tactics. The war on drugs in Pecario, ongoing since 2015, has left more than 60,000 dead and perhaps 35,000 more missing.

In addition, the most powerful cartel, the Santa Polvo Cartel signed a secret pact with the government of Luis Mesa for the latter to promise non-interference in the affairs of the criminal organization in exchange for the end of the massacres on the Pecarian people. Although ex-president Mesa still denies the existence of such a pact, doubt remains. Nowadays the atrocities committed by the Santa Polvo cartel have not stopped but have worsened according to independent Pecarian sources. More than 2,400 journalists and media workers have been killed or disappeared since 2000, and most of these crimes remained unsolved, improperly investigated, and with few perpetrators arrested and convicted.

There are 34 prisons in Pecario, which incarcerate around 6,500 people as of 2018. The prisons are managed by the Penitentiary Regime Directorate (Stillian: Dirección de Régimen Penintenciario). There are 10 prisons in departmental capital cities and 22 provincial prisons.

According to what is established by the Pecarian Political Constitution, the Law of Autonomies and Decentralization regulates the procedure for the elaboration of Statutes of Autonomy, the transfer and distribution of direct competences between the central government and the autonomous entities.

There are four levels of decentralization: Departmental government, constituted by the Departmental Assembly, with rights over the legislation of the department. The governor is chosen by universal suffrage. Municipal government, constituted by a Municipal Council, with rights over the legislation of the municipality. The mayor is chosen by universal suffrage. Regional government, formed by several provinces or municipalities of geographical continuity within a department. It is constituted by a Regional Assembly. Original indigenous government, self-governance of original indigenous people on the ancient territories where they live.


Pecario's economy is largely supported by its abundant natural resources, which has allowed it to become a regional leader in terms of economic growth, fiscal stability and foreign reserves. Despite its history as a historically poor country, Pecario has managed to boost sustained economic growth in recent years, with an estimated gross domestic product (GDP) of $200 billion and a GDP per capita of $9,995.


Agriculture plays a prominent role in Pecarian GDP. The country produces nearly 10 million tons of sugar cane per year and is the 10th largest soybean producer in the world. It also records considerable yields of maize, potato, sorghum, banana, rice and wheat. The country's main exports are soybeans (soybean meal and soybean oil). Pecario's most lucrative agricultural product continues to be coca, of which Pecario is currently the world's first largest cultivator.

Mineral resources

The Cerro da Plata in San Cristóbal, still an important mining site since the colonial times.

Pecario, while historically renowned for its vast mineral wealth, is relatively under-explored in geological and mineralogical terms. The country is rich in various mineral and natural resources, sitting at the heart of South Alharu in Mesothalassa.

Mining is a major sector of the economy, with most of the country's exports being dependent on it. In 2018, the country was the seventh largest world producer of silver; sixth largest world producer of tin and antimony; fifth largest producer of zinc, eight largest producer of lead, fourth largest world producer of boron; and the seventh largest world producer of tungsten. The country also has considerable gold production, which varies close to 25 tons/year, and also has amethyst extraction.

Pecario has the world's largest lithium reserves, second largest antimony reserves, third largest iron ore reserves, seventh largest tin reserves, eight largest lead, silver, and copper reserves, tenth largest zinc reserves, and undisclosed but productive reserves of gold and tungsten. Additionally, there is believed to be considerable reserves of uranium and nickel present in the country's largely under-explored south-eastern regions. Pecario has the first largest natural gas reserves in Alharu. Its natural gas exports bring in millions of dollars per day, in royalties, rents, and taxes

The Pecarian Geological Service estimates that the country has 21 million tonnes of lithium, which represent at least 25% of world reserves – the largest in the world. However, to mine for it would involve disturbing the country's salt flats (called Salar de Uyuni), an important natural feature which boosts tourism in the region. The government does not want to destroy this unique natural landscape to meet the rising world demand for lithium. On the other hand, sustainable extraction of lithium is attempted by the government. This project is carried out by the public company "Recursos Minerales".

Tourism revenues have become increasingly important in Pecario. The Pecarian tourism industry focuses on attracting ethnic diversity and unique natural landscapes. The most visited places are the "Nevado del Puma", a majestic snow-capped mountain with breathtaking panoramas, the "Selva Dorada" National Park, a nature reserve with incredible biodiversity, the "Viracocha" National Park, and the "Emerald Waterfalls" famous for its beautiful turquoise waterfalls and natural pools.

Visitors also flock to the archaeological site of "Guaruma", a legendary ancient city with fascinating remains, and the city of "Pueblo Encantado", renowned for its picturesque alleys and warm atmosphere.

Pecario's best-known festival is the "Festival of Shining Stars", celebrating the magic of Pecario's night sky with breathtaking fireworks shows and traditional dances illuminated by the glow of the stars. Another popular festival is the "Festival of Colors", where locals and visitors gather to celebrate harmony and diversity by throwing colored powders into the air. The "Carnival of the Golden Feathers", with its sumptuous parades and mesmerizing dances, is another emblematic event of Pecario that attracts spectators from all over the world. These festivals reflect the cultural richness and joie de vivre of the Pecarian people, making Pecario a unique and exciting tourist destination.


Agrimentes Dam.

Energy in Pecario is a crucial area that plays a decisive role in the economic and social development of the country. Pecario has a variety of energy resources, which allows it to take a balanced approach to energy production.

Pecario benefits from an extensive hydrographic network, with many streams and rivers. These water resources are exploited for the production of hydroelectric power. Hydroelectric plants use the kinetic energy of moving water to generate electricity. This renewable energy source plays a critical role in providing electricity to the country and reducing its carbon footprint.

Due to its privileged geographical location, Pecario enjoys abundant sunshine throughout the year. Solar energy is harnessed through photovoltaic installations, which convert sunlight into electricity. The increasing use of solar energy contributes to the diversification of Pecario's energy mix and strengthens its ability to meet the growing demand for electricity. Pecario holds significant reserves of natural gas, making it a key energy resource for the country. Natural gas is used for electricity generation, but also as an energy source for industry, transport and households. The gas sector plays a major role in Pecario's economy and contributes to the country's energy stability.

Pecario strives to ensure access to energy for all its citizens, especially in rural and remote areas. Programs are being put in place to improve energy infrastructure, develop distribution networks and promote the use of clean energy in remote communities.



Pecario's Camino del Abismo Road was called the "eurth's most dangerous road". The northern portion of the road, much of it unpaved and without guardrails, was cut into the Cordillera Mountain in the 1920's. Each year over 25,000 bikers cycle along the 40 miles (64 km) road. Every year about 200 people die using this road. Although a new, safer road was built in 1998, the Camino del Abismo road is still widely used today. In 2016, a bill to ban access to the road was launched but did not succeed.


Landing at the San Miguel Airport.

The General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics of Pecario (Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil de Pecario - DGACP), formerly part of the FAP (Pecario Air Force), supervises a school of civil aeronautics called the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics of Pecario (Instituto Nacional de Aeronáutica Civil de Pecario - INACP), as well as two commercial air transport services, Pecario Air and Pecario Express.

Pecario Air - Transporte Aéreo Pecariano (Pecario's Military Airline) is an airline based in Santa Borbones, in the heart of the country. It is the civil branch of the Pecario Air Force, providing passenger transport services to remote and remote areas north and northeast of Pecario. Pecario Air (also known as Pecario Air Group 71) has been part of the FAP since 1985. The airline has recently modernized its fleet to meet the highest standards of safety and comfort.

Pecario Express, proudly nicknamed "Las Alas de Pecario" (The Wings of Pecario), is the national airline of Pecario and wholly owned by the government of the country. It offers a quality and reliable air service, connecting the main cities and tourist destinations of Pecario. With a modern fleet of aircraft, Pecario Express has become a symbol of national pride.

A private airline serving regional destinations is Línea Aérea Pecariano, better known as Pecario Wings. It also offers international connections with some neighbouring countries. Pecario Wings stands out for its personalized service and commitment to passenger safety.

Despite being a civil transport airline, TAP - Transportes Aéreos Pecariano was established as a subsidiary of FAP in 1977. It is subordinate to the Pecario Air Transport Directorate (Gerencia de Transportes Aéreos de Pecario) and is headed by a FAP general. Pecario TAP, a charter cargo airline, provides vital routes for Pecario's economy and development, connecting the country to international markets.

The three largest and main international airports in Pecario are El Dorado International Airport in Santa Borbones, Viracocha International Airport in Valleluz and Condor International Airport in San Mariposa. There are also regional airports in other cities that are connected to these three main hubs, allowing travelers to experience the beauty and diversity of Pecario from the air.


According to the last two censuses carried out by the Pecarian National Statistics Institute (Instituto Nacional de Estadística, INE), the population increased from 25,089,468 in 2003 to 29,059,856 in 2023. In the last fifty years the pecarian population has tripled, reaching a population growth rate of 2.25%. Some 67.55% of Pecarians live in urban areas, while the remaining 32.45% in rural areas. According to the 2012 census, 58% of the population is between 15 and 59 years old, 41% is less than 15 years old. Almost 65% of the population is younger than 25 years of age.

Ethnic groups

Ethnic Groups in Pecario (2019 Census)
Ethnic Groups percent
Not Stated

The vast majority of Pecarians are mestizo (with the indigenous component higher than the Europan one). There are approximately three dozen native groups totaling approximately half of the Pecarian population. A 2019 estimate of racial classification put mestizo (mixed white and native) at 68% and indigenous at 20%, with 44% attributed themselves to some indigenous group, predominantly the linguistic categories of Quepec or Guaruma. White pecarian comprised about 15% of the population in 2007, and are usually concentrated in the largest cities: Santa Borbones, Valleluz and Solmarina. The ancestry of whites and the white ancestry of mestizos lies in Europa, most notably in the ancient Iberic Empire.

Indigenous peoples, also called "originarios" ("native" or "original") and less frequently, Natives, could be categorized by geographic area, like the Guaruma and Quepec (who formed the ancient Tuachec Empire), who are concentrated in the northern departments of Chacaltaya, Monteflor and Marenia.


Pecario has great linguistic diversity as a result of its multiculturalism. The Constitution of Pecario recognizes 36 official languages besides Iverican: Quepec, Guaruma, Xilantu, Yurimba, Zavakiri, Ikumina, Ombora, Kalyari, Lumandu, Wulama, Taviru and Pumangu.

Iverican is the most spoken official language in the country, according to the 2003 census; as it is spoken by two-thirds of the population. All legal and official documents issued by the State, including the Constitution, the main private and public institutions, the media, and commercial activities, are in Iverican. Although the first settlers were mostly of Stillian origin, after the signing of the Treaty of Gorgia, the arrival of many Iverican immigrants transformed the Pecarian language. Some regions have however strongly kept Stillian roots, mixing with Iverican and creating a unique dialect of Stillian Iverican. If we can talk of an Iverican language in Pecario, we can note that it is a great mixture of Native, Stillian and mainly Iverican roots.

The main indigenous languages are: Quepec (22.5% of the population in the 2001 census), Guaruma (15.7%), Xilantu (0.7%) and others (0.3%). Bilingual education was implemented in Pecario under the leadership of President Luis Mesa. His program placed emphasis on the expansion of indigenous languages in the educational systems of the country.


Religions in Pecario (2018)
  Tacolism (77%)
  Orthodoxy (19%)
  Others (3%)
  No religion (1%)

Pecario is a constitutionally secular state that guarantees the freedom of religion and the independence of government from religion. According to the 2003 census conducted by the National Institute of Statistics of Pecario, 78% of the population is Tacolic Christian, followed by 19% that are Orthodox and 4% non-religious.

Much of the indigenous population adheres to different traditional beliefs marked by inculturation or syncretism with Tacolism. The cult of Pachamama, or "Mother Earth", is notable. Deities worshiped in Pecario include Zalanteco, the god of nature and wild animals and Xihuitl, the goddess of the seasons and the cycle of life.

We can also note the practice of the cult of Santa Muerte. It may vary by region and community, but it continues to draw attention and spark discussion about the country's religious and cultural diversity. This cult is encouraged by drug cartels, including the Santa Polvo Cartel, which preaches, often violently, the good words of the Santa Muerte to the population.


In 2007, Pecario was declared free of illiteracy. The education system in Pecario faces many obstacles, in particular the lack of resources and qualified personnel in areas that are difficult to access.


Pecarian culture has been heavily influenced by the Iberic, the Guaruma, the Quepec culturs. The cultural development is divided into three distinct periods: pre-colonial, colonial, and republican. Important archaeological ruins, gold and silver ornaments, stone monuments, ceramics, and weavings remain from several important pre-Colonial cultures. Major ruins include Vunawaku, Tualcacán, El Fuerte de Damoya, Tukavera and Kallanka. The country abounds in other sites that are difficult to reach and have seen little archaeological exploration.

The Diablada, dance primeval, typical and main of the Carnival of Alvarez.

The Iberics brought their own tradition of religious art which, in the hands of local indigenous and mestizo builders and artisans, developed into a rich and distinctive style of architecture, painting and sculpture. The colonial period produced not only the paintings of Diego Vargas, Valentina Sanchez, Rodrigo Ortega, and others but also the works of skilled but unknown stonemasons, woodcarvers, goldsmiths and goldsmiths. A significant body of indigenous religious music from the colonial period has been recovered and has been performed internationally with wide acclaim since 1993.

Pecarian has a rich folklore. Its regional folk music is distinctive and varied. The "devil dances" at the annual carnival of Avalrez are one of the great folkloric events of South Alharu, as is the lesser known carnival at El Rosario.

Pecarian art has had a significant impact on the development of various artistic movements in Alharu and beyond in the 19th century. The historical events that took place have all contributed to making it encompass a diverse array of arts throughout each generation.

The earliest manifestation of Pecarian art dates back to painted cave art in the northern caves of Chacaltaya, dating around 7000 years old. The cave paintings depicted handprints, figures, and animals. Further to the west, in the states of Monteflor and Las Cumbres, there are petroglyphs dating back to 1000 AD, depicting hunting scenes and representations of deities. Urban architecture reached a new height during the 11th in the Guaruma Culture. The Guaruma built the city of Tunawaku in Valleluz. The Guaruma were skilled goldsmiths and created remarkable works of hydraulic engineering.

The Tuachec Civilization, which united Pecario under its hegemony in the centuries immediately preceding the Iberic conquest, incorporated into their own works a great part of the cultural legacy of the civilizations which preceded it. Important relics of their artwork and architecture can be seen in cities like Tualcacán.

Pecarian sculpture and painting began to define themselves from the ateliers founded by monks. The Iberic Conquest imposes its religious art centered on iconography. In this context, the stalls of the Cathedral choir, the fountain of the Main Square of Santa Borbones both by Polio de Naguera, and a great part of the colonial production were registered. The ornate neoclassical paintings contributed to the aesthetics of the establishment of the rich colonial aristocracy and the grand churches. The first center of art established by the Iberic was the Santa Borbones School that taught Quepec artists Europan painting styles. Mateo Chiuescio (1617–1671) was one of the first members of the Santa Borbones school and Juan Esteban (1710–1753) was one of the last. Painting of this time reflected a synthesis of Europan and Indigenous influence. During the 17th and 18th centuries, the Baroque Style also dominated the field of plastic arts.

The events of the War of Independence would allow for an artistic revival in Pecario. Works from this era largely settled within the realms of impressionism and romanticism, depicting either the picturesque coastal towns, the imposing mountains of the Cordillera del Sol and the bloody clashes of the war. Romanticism continued its course into the 19th century.

The turn of the 20th century allowed for the introduction of expressionism among the new trends. Victor Maríano was the most internationally renowned pecarian artist and the proprietor of expressionist and surrealist paintings. Many of Maríano's most famous works, such as "Amor Secreto," were influenced by the dark periods of military dictatorships that followed in the 19th or 20th centuries in Pecario.

With the normalization of violence linked to the War on drugs, urban art rapidly developed in Pecario. One can mention Miguel Cruz, a young urban artist who, through his murals, denounces violence, corruption, consumerism, and pollution.


Pecarian playing the traditional tarka flute.

Pecario has a long tradition of music from the preiberic era to the present. Much of the music from the colonial era was composed for religious purposes. Pecarian music has Native and Iberic roots. In Pre-Colonial times, the quena, the tarka (flute) and the tinya were two common instruments. Iberics introduced new instruments, such as the guitar and the harp, which led to the development of crossbred instruments like the charango. Pecarian folk dances include marinera, tondero and diablada.

Pecarian music is dominated by the national instrument, the charango. In coastal regions, the charango is used in courtship rituals, symbolically invoking mermaids with the instrument to lure the woman to the male performers. Violins and harps, also of Europan origin, are also played.

Pecarian Mariachi.

Traditional Pecarian music includes mariachi, banda, ranchera and corridos. Corridos were particularly popular during the Pecarian Revolution (1917–20) and in the present era include narcocorridos. The embrace of rock and roll by young Pecarians in the 1960s and 1970s brought Pecario into the transnational, counterculture movement of the era. On an everyday basis most Pecarians listen to contemporary music such as pop, rock, and others in both Anglish and Iberic. The symbol of Pecarian music is Luis Montoya, wurld renowned virtuoso guitarist and considered to be the father of the modern classical guitar.


Chile en nogada, various types of corn, kultec Beans, red pozole, mezcal horse with worm salt and lemons, altar with bread of the dead and sugar catrina, shrimp cocktail with toast.

The origin of the current Pecarian cuisine was established during the Iberic colonial era, a mixture of the foods of the Iberic Empire with native indigenous ingredients. Foods indigenous to Pecario include corn, pepper vegetables, calabazas, avocados, sweet potato, turkey, many beans, and other fruits and spices. Similarly, some cooking techniques used today are inherited from pre-Colonial peoples, such as the nixtamalization of corn and the cooking of food in ovens at ground levelee. With the Iberics came the pork, beef and chicken meats; peppercorn, sugar, milk and all its derivatives, wheat and rice, citrus fruits and another constellation of ingredients that are part of the daily diet of Pecarians.

From this meeting of millennia old two culinary traditions, were born pozole, mole sauce, barbacoa and tamale in its current forms, Representative desserts are buñuelos, natillas, Maria Luisa cake, cocadas (coconut balls), casquitos de guayaba (candied guava peels), flan de mango, roscón, milhoja, manjar blanco, dulce de feijoa, dulce de papayuela and esponjado de curuba. Typical sauce is the hogao (tomato and onion sauce).

Some representative beverages are coffee, champús, cholado, lulada, sugarcane juice, aguapanela, aguardiente and hot chocolate. Other refreshing drinks include chicha morada, chicha de jora and the two national beverages, pisco (wine brandy), paired with local fruits like cherimoya, maracuja and camu-camu, complete the Pecarian menu.

Pecario has public and private universities. Among them : Private University of Santa Borbones (PUSB) - Established in Santa Borbones, Tacolic University of Marbella (TUM) - Based in Marbella, Technological University of Riomar (TUR) - Located in Riomar, University of Fine Arts of Los Picos V (UFALP) - Located in Los Picos.


Football is popular. The national team is the Pecario national football team. Racquetball is the second most popular sport in Pecario. Basketball is especially popular and influential in the San Cristóbal Department.
