Cusco is a landlocked country in the Andes region of western South America. They border Wanka to the north, and Colla to the south. Cusco is the strongest of the Andean countries and is therefore suitable for forming Inca and completing the Sun God achievement.
Cusco has several country-specific historical events.
Fall of the Chanka & the Rise of Cusco
After years of struggles and having been dangerously close to total defeat by the Chankas in 1438 the kingdom of Cusco has now risen to a greater position than it has ever had previously. Having saved the kingdom, the young king Pachacuti went on to conquer the Chanka kingdom itself shortly afterwards, a state that for long times has exacted tribute not only from Cusco but from many of the states in the Andean world since the fall of the old Wari Empire.\nApart from marking Pachacuti as the greatest leader of the Cusco kingdom to date, the fall of the Chankas have given us access to their great treasury, a huge collection of gifts from neighbors and tributaries. This is exactly the kind of capital needed to buy the services necessary to reform and expand our kingdom. At this point nobody knows Pachacuti's plans but what is certain is that he has the means to steer Cusco in whichever direction he could wish.
This event fires only once.
It is before 1450.

Long live Pachacuti, he who makes the Earth Shake!
One of the first things on Pachacuti's agenda is the reshaping of Cusco. While our capital has served its purpose over the years it is in many ways no more than a rural village, often flooded by nearby rivers. Such a city is no longer fitting for a kingdom with ambitions such as ours. By creating a small model version of the city $MONARCH$ has drawn up plans for an entire redesign of the city, necessitating the complete evacuation of the city for the duration of the project.
While the manpower and material needed for this project are readily available inside our new borders mobilizing the various chiefs under our control entails a generous use of gifts and feasts. That is however a price we will have to pay for our new capital.

the event ‘Fall of the Chanka & the Rise of Cusco’.
Let us create a worthy capital!
Cusco (808) gets the modifier “Restructuring of Cusco” for 20 years, giving the following effects:
If Cusco has a stability of less than +3,
Our resources are better used for other things.
Reconstruction of Cusco Complete
After almost 20 years the great project of restructuring Cusco is complete. The land has been leveled to create huge plazas and beautiful buildings erected, the nearby rivers have been led into canals.
The city is built to be the capital of an Empire rather than a small kingdom and is organized into four regions matching the way which we divide our realm in the Andes. The royal centre is located at the junction of the regions of Antisuyu, Qullasuyu, Kuntisuyu and Chinchaysuyu and these regions divide the Cusco valley as well as our empire.
This event fires only once.
|Mean time to happen
Cusco (808) gets the modifier “Cusco” for the rest of the campaign, giving the following effects:
Just as the city of Cusco was in need of being reshaped in order to fit the wider ambition of the Cusco kingdom $MONARCH$ is now in need of a stately Estate to match the importance of his person and his lineage. On a mountain completely surrounded by the Urubamba river $MONARCH$ has planned the city of Machu Picchu, a royal retreat for his court and his Panaca and a beautiful place for a ruler of his magnitude to reside in.

Let us build a great city!
Cusco (808) gets the province modifier “Machu Picchu” for the rest of the campaign, giving the following effects:
If this country has a stability of less than +3,
Let's not get carried away.

Once one of many small regional kingdoms our state now holds land in all the four regions of the Andes. Our kingdom has transformed into something greater, a mighty empire of many peoples united under a strong class of rulers. To our subjects we are simply their overlords, the Incas.
