Ah, that narrows it down to only 98% of the countries in the world.
I'll go with good old 'Nam then. Are the Bui Doi what the VC called themselves?

Yes, Vietnam is the country.

Bui Doi means "dust of life" and refers to vagrants in general. The term became known in the west from the musical Miss Saigon, which uses it to refer more specifically to the children of Vietnamese women fathered by American soldiers. Highly stigmatized in Vietnam, many of them were allowed to emigrate to the United States eventually.

Peru is the home of the Inca, among others.

But I'll throw Mexico out there, for MMI's reason.
