An international intervention forces both sides to accept a status-quo peace treaty, which heavily favored Peru-Bolivia.

1945 - Peru-Bolivia declares war on the Axis, but doesn't participate in combat. The APRA is unbanned. In the wake of the rise of the Soviet Union, the APRA and the Peru-Bolivian Socialist Party become major political forces. The two parties don't cooperate much over ideological differences.

1950 - Modest land reform efforts begin. But they aren't enough to satisfy the public.

The Socialist Republic

1965 - With the support of dissatisfied factions in the military, the Communist Party launches a coup. The Republic of Peru-Bolivia is reorganized into the Socialist Republic of Andea, a one-party Marxist-Leninist state. With help from socialist allies, a major industrialization effort is launched.

1968 - Velasco Alvarado, a pro-indigenous general gained prominence in the Communist Party. He critiqued Andea's emulation of the Orostani model, which had little regard for protecting indigenous culture and rights. Velasco also advocated for non-alignment in foreign affairs.

1975 - Velasco was purged from the Communist Party and is forced into early retirement. He died three years later.

1980 - The Shining Path, an etnocacerista group, launched a guerilla war in the town of Chuschi, Ayacucho. It sought to overthrow the "anti-indigenous" Andean government. The Sendero perpetrators were quickly caught by local police, and the incident got little attention from the Andean press.

1981 - In Ayacucho, the growing Shining Path presence led to Andean military being deployed to stop the Shining Path. The brutal military reprisals against Shining Path attacks led to increased supports for the insurgency.

1982 - The Shining Path launched a brutal counter-attack. Soldiers, law enforcement, and "collaborators" [pro-government civilians] were killed, often using gruesome methods. This turned off many would-be supporters away from the Shining Path. The government began arming Ronda Campesinas, peasant militias to fight against the Shining Path. Orostani special forces also arrived to help quell the insurgency. The Shining Path began selling illegal drugs in order to fund itself, coining the term narcoterrorism.

1985 - As the insurgency dragged on, the Shining Path committed several massacres in retaliation for government or ronda attacks. The Shining Path begins a policy of assassinating politicians in an attempt to paralyze the state administration, and also begins regular raids into Lima. The Shining Path also targeted reformist pro-indigenous individuals and organizations, as they were seen as detrimental to the pro-indigenous cause.

1988 - Hyperinflation began in Andea, as the government struggled to finance both the war and its social spending. The desperate situation helped legitimize the Shining Path's cause, a situation that was becoming increasingly dire.

1991 - The Shining Path reached its greatest extent, controlling much of Andea's countryside and even the outskirts of Lima. A state of emergency was declared, and the government started the use of extralegal death squads against Shining Path supporters. The Andean government also drastically raised prices of all goods and cut social services, which stopped the hyperinflation but left much of the poor in a difficult situation. These actions only served to escalate the war.

1992 - Andean intelligence agents managed to capture the Shining Path leader. The heavily centralized Shining Path had no second in command, and soon fragmented and faltered to obscurity. Most Shining Path forces surrendered, but some went into hiding or continued resistance in the VRAEM region. The Shining Path remnants in the VRAEM explicitly allied themselves with drug traffickers. This was dubbed by the Andean press as the narco-terrorist insurgency.

1994 - Market socialist policies were implemented, but most industry remained under state control. Afterward, an unprecedented prolonged economic boom occurred, as inflation was brought into tight control and social programs were reinstituted. The government undertook a major offensive in the VRAEM region, wiping out the narco-terrorist insurgency. However, pro-democracy activists were starting to advocate for the end to one-party rule.

1997 - Preempting the pro-democracy movement, Andea declared itself a socialist democracy, which satisfied the general populace. Over time political restrictions would further loosen. Despite that, the Communist Party remains the most entrenched party in Andea, but no longer holds a monopoly on power.
