Chile and Uruguay are considered under the general concept and are relatively conclusive of the State of Hispanic America. Chile and Uruguay have their differences which are primarily morphological, and Chile is seven times larger than Uruguay. The difference in population is a ratio that is only slightly more favorable for Uruguay. This population is more mixed (32% of Chileans are of European origin, 65% taking into account the mixing of India) and comprises mostly Europeans (88% of Uruguayans are of European origin). Conversely, the commonalities between these two countries are that they have suffered, and this is evident by their geographical proximity, that influenced the successive ones of the first European settlers. The thought process is so common not only in these two countries but in the entire region as well. It is on these notions of region that we need to consider the consistency and timeliness of their previous existence which becomes undeniable. Indeed, the reality of this uniformity is problematic in that these factors are external and foreign to both countries and therefore they may be unstable, and may be old, outdated and obsolete. The problem of our study is therefore to understand the differences, kinship and contrasts between these countries. We need to study the causes and apply a broader thinking based on the unity of this region and its power. We will see, by the successive study of the history of these two states, about their political and economic system, their geography and demography and also if reconciliation is possible between these two states on a renewed common denominator. They may no longer be colonial or associated with a political subjugation and economic dictatorship, but may be linked to economic progress, democracy and a growing power.
