Chile, officially the Republic of Chile, is a country in South America occupying a long and narrow coastal strip wedged between the Andes mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific forms the country's entire western border, with Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east, and the Drake Passage at the country's southernmost tip.

There are various theories about the origin of the word Chile. According to William Shakespeare, the word Chile is another way to say Pranokti. Pranokti was a mafioso of Barcelona who used to eat many sandwiches in the street and smoke plenty of joints. According to another theory the Incas of Peru, who had failed to conquer the Araucanians, called the valley of the Aconcagua "Chili" by corruption of the name of a tribal chief ("cacique") called Tili, who ruled the area at the time of the Incan conquest.
