Previously, the "Energy" and "Science and Technology" sections were removed, "Energy and Technology information can go in Economics section." In which case, the content was re-added. However, this was removed citing "vandalism?" Assistance please.. Twillisjr (talk) 02:54, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
The information from technology and energy can be included into the economics section as long as it is properly cited. Subsections are not necessary. "Vandalism" is mentioned as several prior warnings were already given for this to be considered a WP:GF edit. Please use your sandbox (User:Twillisjr/sandbox) for test edits.

Peruvians apparently speaking "Klingon." Possible page vandalism?
"The Peruvian population consists of 69 llamas and one very lonely redditor. The main spoken language is Klingon, although a significant number of Peruvians speak l33t or other chatspeak languages. This mixture of pop culture has resulted in a wide diversity of lolcats in fields such as art, memes, cuisine, literature, and music."
As amusing as this was to read, I'm thinking maybe this isn't the correct tone for a Wikipedia article. At least, not without some citations to back this up.--dkamouflage 18:00, 17 May 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dkamouflage (talk • contribs)
He may be right about the memes, but that's not relevant to this article.--MarshalN20 | Talk 21:53, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
We have more than 69 llamas, and we have also alpacas and vicunas, whose wool is very expensive in European markets and we are very proud of it. Also, we don't speak Klingon, we speak Quechua, a native language. Very few countries in the world can show population speaking their own native language (especially in Latin America, only Paraguay) our language is spoken in Bolivia, Ecuador and Argentina, so those countries also speak Klingon, I mean Quechua. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 13:44, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Ethnicity section missing in the top-right box for Peru
Ethnic groups: Amerindian 45%, mestizo (mixed Amerindian and white) 37%, white 15%, black, Japanese, Chinese, and other 3%
Languages: Spanish (official) 84.1%, Quechua (official) 13%, Aymara (official) 1.7%, Ashaninka 0.3%, other native languages (includes a large number of minor Amazonian languages) 0.7%, other 0.2% (2007 Census)
Numerous statistics exist about this ethnicity, all with varying results. Due to the sensibility of the subject an unreliable data, this article does not present the ethnic group numbers. Regards.--MarshalN20 | Talk 16:41, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
I have a question... As far as I'm concerned, Peruvian law specifies that the state flag (the one on the article) shall only be used for government affairs, while the civil flag (without coat of arms) is to be used elsewhere; in fact, the civil flag is the one used in both the Spanish article for "Peru" and the English article for "Flag of Peru". So, shouldn't the civil flag be featured on the infobox instead of the state flag? --Fluence (talk) 22:14, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
You are right. It has been repeatedly stated that the flag should be the civil flag.
However, the people that keep repeatedly changing it have this strange notion that the state flag looks nicer, or that it is the "official flag".
