Bolivia, officially known as the Plurinational State of Bolivia, is a landlocked country located in western-central South America. It is bordered to the north and east by Brazil, to the southeast by Paraguay, to the south by Argentina, to the southwest by Chile, and to the northwest by Peru.
Large parts of Bolivia were under the rule of the Inca before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th Century. It was originally christened "Upper Peru". A war of independence began in 1809, and was finally won in 1825, after several years of primarily guerrilla warfare. Throughout the 19th Century, the Republic of Bolivia saw multiple periods of instability, including a short-lived confederation with Peru, wars with its neighbors which caused loss of of substantial territory, leaving the country landlocked. The 20th Century saw the rule of military juntas. A push return to true democracy in the late 1990s and early 21st Century have yielded mixed results.
Bolivia in Southern VictoryEdit
When submersible skipper Roger Kimball was looking for a job after the CS Navy was downsized at the end of the Great War, he considered going to one of the South American nations to enlist in a navy, but preemptively eliminated the two landlocked countries (the other being Paraguay) from his list.
Bolivia remained neutral in World War II. In 1942, it was conquered by the Race's Conquest Fleet during their invasion of the Earth, along with the rest of South America. It was recognised as a Race colony after the Peace of Cairo in 1944.
