Peru's government is very similar to that of the United States. There are three main branches in Peru's government. They are the executive branch, the judicial branch, and the legislative branch. The president of Peru is in the executive branch. Peru's Congress is in the legislative branch and the Peru Supreme Court of Justice is in the judicial branch. Peru's system of laws is based on a civil law system.

 

Peru gained their independence from Spain on July 28th, 1821.
