Chile, officially La República de Chile(Spanish: "Republic of Chile"), is a long, thin country in the western part of South America. It shares land borders with Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, and Argentina to the east.

Chile was colonized by the Spanish in the mid-16th century, then declared independence from Spain in 1818. Its residents speak Spanish, and its capital is Santiago.

Chile was referenced in a number of episodes of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, including:

  • It's the Pits: penguins in Puntas Arenas and the Strait of Magellan
    • In the Final Showdown, the loot is located at the copper mines, the Warrant at the Presidential Palace, and Top Grunge at the Atacama Desert.
  • Minnehaha: The Filching of the Falls: Santiago and the Atacama Desert
  • The Case of the Pinched Paws: abrazo (traditional greeting in Chile) and the ferias (traveling fairs) of Santiago
  • Haul the Hollerin' Home: copper wire, Atacama Desert, and rainy southern coast
    • During the Lightning Round, Greg Lee asks questions about the Atacama Desert, the world's longest country, and gathering moisture from fog.
  • A Volcanic Corruption: Isla Negra (home of poet Pablo Neruda)
  • In Headache in the Temple, the Gumshoes look for clues in three trash cans. These clues reveal that Chile's location is the Western Cape Horn, its capital is Santiago, and its language is Spanish.
