Headhunting in the Republic of Chile is the secret tip among Latin American countries, as the modern and sovereign state is one of the most economically and socially stable and prosperous countries in South America.

Compared to other Latin American countries, Chile has a high-income economy and a relatively high standard of living. It leads the South American countries in terms of human development, competitiveness, per capita income, its state of peace, economic freedom and lowest levels of corruption. Chile has the lowest crime and murder rate in the Americas after Canada.

Chile also has a high priority in terms of state sustainability and democratic development. In the Democracy Index 2019, the country ranks 21st out of 167 countries, ahead of Portugal, Belgium or Italy and is thus classified as "complete democracy". Chile is a member of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and a founding member of the United Nations.

Chile is one of the largest producers of raw materials. It has the largest known copper deposits in the world and operates the largest copper mines in the world. Various precious metals and above all saltpetre led Chile to its wealthy position at the beginning of industrialisation. Also, Chile is also the world's largest producer of lithium, which will continue to give the country an important role in the future in driving forward the global energy revolution.

Despite its exemplary system, Chile's migration rate of 0.35 migrants per 1,000 inhabitants (2012) is one of the lowest in Latin America. Interestingly, however, German immigrants of the 19th century played a major role in the development of the country because after the failed "German Revolution" (1849/50) German colonization began, which was even welcomed and encouraged by the Chilean government. Immigration from German-speaking countries influenced the culture of a large area of southern Chile. To this day, Chileans have a special affinity to Germany, which is also due to exile experiences in the GDR during the Chilean dictatorship, or to Prussian-German traditions, which still influence the Chilean military today.

The population of ethnic German Chileans today numbers about 200,000. Occasionally, German is still spoken in the south of Chile – in the so-called "Chilean Switzerland", there are still German schools, sports clubs and hospitals.
