This state occupies the southwestern section of South America; the continental territory, with an extremely particular configuration, corresponds to a strip of land between the watershed of the Andes and the coast of the Pacific Ocean, on average 175 km wide and 4300 km long from the northern border to the southern cusp (Cape Horn), which represents even the extreme limit of the continent. The distant islands of the Pacific are subject to Chilean sovereignty: Islas Desventuradas, Juan Fernández and Easter Island, located in Oceania. Chilean are the islands of the Beagle Canal (Picton, Nueva and Lennox). The precise adherence of political borders to physical geography is at the origin of the curious design of the country, largely open to the ocean, but separated from the rest of South America by the Andean barrier. Despite this apparent separateness, Chile has not escaped the political history of the subcontinent, made up of instability, alternation between nominally liberal or even progressive governments and heavy dictatorships (which had in the Chilean general Pinochet one of its highlights). It became independent very early on from other South American countries (in 1818), and at the beginning of the year 2000 it consolidated a prominent position in the world rankings for well-being indices. The newfound international credibility and the solidity of the financial system have attracted significant amounts of investment from abroad. Its position on the Pacific, which has become the center of gravity of increasingly intense and alternative relations to the consolidated Atlantic area, assumes ever more strategic importance; Chile therefore sees its expansion margins widen. In short, a country projected towards new horizons of integration, with the aim of erasing the shadows of the past. According to COUNTRYAAH, Chile is a nation in South America, the capital city of which is Santiago. The latest population of Chile is 19,116,212.

CLIMATE
Due to the latitudinal development and altimetric differences, the Chilean climate is subject to very strong variations; however, it presents a curious anomaly by the performance of the isotherms and of the same isoiete, which to some extent reduces the differences between N and S, which are very marked. Among the factors for which isotherms and isoiets generally tend to arrange themselves in the meridian direction, there is the uninterrupted closure to continental influences, given the Andean barrier, and the corresponding complete opening to oceanic influences and above all the presence of the Humboldt current., which laps the coasts of the country, helping to level the temperatures, especially during the austral summer (in January in Antofagasta, in the extreme N, there is an average of 19 ºC; in Puerto Aisén, 2000 km further south, 15 ºC); it is also responsible to a large extent, with its condensing action of the humidity brought by the sea winds, of the great aridity that invests northern Chile (in the Atacama desert the rains can be absent for several years). The temperatures, however, do not know the excesses of other desert areas, as they are mitigated by the altitude. The rainfall progressively increases towards the S; in the median section of the country, rainfall reaches values ​​of 500-1000 mm per year and occurs mainly during the southern winter: therefore,, a Mediterranean-type climate, mild (annual average of 16 ºC, with limited temperature variations), little rain and very suitable for settlement. Southern Chile, on the other hand, is characterized by a temperate-cold oceanic climate, very rainy (in the archipelagos, up to 4000 mm of rain fall per year). However, temperatures do not know the harshness of continental climates: Punta Arenas, on the Strait of Magellan, has an average temperature of 10 ºC in summer, 1 ºC in winter. From N to S the limit of perennial snow varies greatly, passing from 5000 m to less than 1000 m in the southern part; in Tierra del Fuego, where the climate is decidedly subantarctic, the glaciers descend directly to the sea. Only in the northern and middle section of Chile is the distinction in tierras calientes, tierras templadas and tierras frías, characteristic of the Andean countries.
