No. That sounds like Peru. (I can say that because I actually live here. I also have a personal, INTIMATE experience of being robbed while my family was sleeping.)

Unfortunately, literacy is not highly prized here, since keeping warm, eating, and staying alive have precedence over other things.

Peruvians who do read and are educated, however, are understandably very proud of Mario Vargas Llosa.
