Background: Prior to the coming of the Spanish in the 16th century , northern Chile was under Inca rule while Araucanian Indians (also known as Mapuches) inhabited central and southern Chile. Although Chile declared its independence in 1810 , decisive victory over the Spanish was not achieved until 1818. In the War of the Pacific (1879-83) , Chile defeated Peru and Bolivia and won its present northern regions. It was not until the 1880s that the Araucanian Indians were completely subjugated. A three-year-old Marxist government of Salvador ALLENDE was overthrown in 1973 by a military coup led by Augusto PINOCHET , who ruled until a freely elected president was installed in 1990. Sound economic policies , maintained consistently since the 1980s , have contributed to steady growth , reduced poverty rates by over half , and have helped secure the country's commitment to democratic and representative government. Chile has increasingly assumed regional and international leadership roles befitting its status as a stable , democratic nation.
