North America may be home to the most powerful country in the world, but in many ways, South America is even more fascinating. The history of South America starts with strange, powerful ancient civilizations like the Maya and the Aztec. Then came the conquistadors; Spanish conquerors looking for valuable natural resources like gold. From the conquistadors came centuries of cultural collision, wars, United States meddling, and finally, where we are today.
South America has produced some of the greatest athletes, killer parties, artists, business people, and the current pope. It has some of the longest rivers, highest mountains and most isolated indigenous tribes. South America is home to bleeding edge tech companies and cultures untouched by modern civilization. There are pagans, Catholics, and everything in between. South America is a massive collection of counties, each with its own history and identity, so do you think you're ready for this quiz, or do you need to open a search window and cheat on this quiz?
