The festival was held in Cuzco and was attended by the four nations of Tahuantinsuyu.
In Quechua, Inti Raimi, means "resurrection of the sun." Military captains, government officials, and the vassals who attended were dressed in their best costumes, and carried their best weapons and instruments.
By 1990, the inti was so inflated that the nuevo sol (new Sol) was adopted in July, 1991 to replace the inti with an exchange rate of 1 new sol to 1,000,000 inti.

 Inca Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pachacuti reorganized the kingdom of Cuzco into an empire, the Tahuantinsuyu, a federalist system which consisted of a central government with the Inca at its head and four provincial governments with strong leaders: Chinchasuyu (NW), Antisuyu (NE), Contisuyu (SW), and Collasuyu (SE).
At its height, Tahuantinsuyu included Peru and Bolivia, most of what is now Ecuador, a large portion of what is today northern Chile, and extended into corners of Argentina and Colombia.
However, it should be noted that most of the southern portion of the Inca empire, the portion denominated as Collasuyu, was desert wasteland.

In various parts of Tahuantinsuyu, soldiers at the command of generals overwhelmingly supportive of Pachacutec patrolled and menaced the air on which floated talk of popular support for the imprisoned Sapa Inka.
The Spanish tried again in future, of course, but always were out-numbered and out-paced by the armies of Tahuantinsuyu (the local name for the empire), and with all of their other enemies in the world it eventually proved impossible to dedicate the resources to defeating the Inca.
Tahuantinsuyu for its part becomes more introspective, and ceases its own series of conquests: the Spanish are too strong, and the empire is damaged by alien disease.

The Inca Empire (called Tawantinsuyu in modern spelling Aymara and Quechua, or Tahuantinsuyu in old spelling Quechua, which means Land of the Four Corners) was an empire located in South America from 1438 to 1533.
The foreign name Inca Empire is derived from the word Inca, which means "Emperor." Today the word Inca still refers to the emperor, but can also refer to the people or the civilization, and is used as an adjective when referring to the beliefs of the people or the artifacts they left behind.
The meaning of the phrase tawantin suyu in Quechua is "the four regions between", which referred to the four provinces whose corners met at the empire's capital, Cusco (Qosqo).

The importance of Cuzco as the originator of the imperial ideology in architecture cannot be undervalued, but the city itself is difficult to evaluate because the Spanish built many of their structures on top of existing Inca foundations or used Inca buildings as reservoirs for building materials.
Whereas in the large official structures of the Empire dressed stones were the primary material, fieldstones were used everywhere else in Tahuantinsuyu.
Tahuantinsuyu survived in its material manifestations of imperial power, perhaps some of its magic has also been left behind.

Although the Inca empire is commonly referred to as an 'Andean civilization', a phrase evoking the image of a society adapted to a rugged, essentially mountainous terrain, this view in fact obscures the great environmental complexity and ecological diversity that existed within the territory controlled by this ancient society.
The environmental setting in which Inca civilization thrived thus incorporated the three major ecological zones of coast, mountains and tropical forest, each of which was home to a seeming myriad local and regional ethnic groups.
While the Coricancha was the focal point of ritual life within the capital, the palaces, shrines and population of Cusco represented the focal point of the empire of Tahuantinsuyu as a whole.

But the Tahuantinsuyu Empire was weakened by a bloody civil war and by the smallpox that eventually killed more than half of its population, as well as by the rule of an extreme and cruel Emperor as Huáscar turned out to be.
Still, the weight of military technology and mass immigration remained against Tahuantinsuyu, and by the time of industrial revolution in the outside world, the for corners of the empire were neighboured by numerous powerful states, such as Brazil and Argentina.

The Spanish now ruled all of the lands that had once been Tahuantinsuyu.
Of the 12 million people who had lived in Peru when the Spanish first arrived, less than two million remained, most having died from diseases brought by the Spanish.
However, many of the old Inca traditions, festivals, and pilgrimages have survived in secret, or have been combined with Christian ones.

 A new golden dawn for the empire of the Inca - jolt.co.uk public forums
Pachacutec's reference to Tahuantinsuyu made him instantly an enemy of seven national governments, but he was quite prepared to face them with his Quechuan masses.
This was the next town visited in force by Pachacutec's supporters, who arrived apparently to demonstrate for the reconstruction of Tahuantinsuyu as a native kingdom and were met accordingly with a police presence.
When the Spanish come back in serious force, Tahuantinsuyu is not a fractured and war-weary place as they found in reality, but an empire with a sense of unity and endurance, and military progress is harder and more costly to the Europeans.

Tahuantinsuyu means "Land of the Four Quarters" in Quechua, the language of the Inca - the culture that is the main focus of this group.
Not to be forgotten, however, are the other Peruvian cultures that existed before the Inca including the Hauri (Wari) the Tiahuanaco (Tiwanaku), the Nazca, the Mochica (Moche), the Paracas and the Chavin.

Rather, from some point such as the center of the village plaza, there is a quadrapartite division of the community and of its territory that corresponds to and physically aligns with the four great suyu of Mayu.
The very name Tahuantinsuyu implies that the Inca played out these principles on an imperial scale.
Responsibility for scheduling economic tasks probably led local karakas to develop calendars appropriate to local conditions which varied between one ayllu and another.

 Talk:Inca Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I think both Tahuantinsuyu and Inca Empire are ok, I'm abstaining on this one.
I have a bunch of modern and old books using Tahuantinsuyu, both Tawantinsuyo and Tahuantinsuyo seem much less common, and are mostly present on the web (I've seen Tawantinsuyu in a book however, so maybe a change is happening?) And we already went through the whole "Inca" vs. "Incan" as the adjective.
In a little less than a century, the Inca empire (Tahuantinsuyu, "the four regions" in Quechua) extended its power over a vast region of the Andes.

 IV/81 Inca (1438-1534 AD)
The Inca were a small group of Quechua speaking peoples from the central highlands of the Andes who through good luck, political deviousness and not inconsiderable violence, managed to carve out one of the largest empires seen in the pre-Columbian Americas.
The empire of Tahuantinsuyu (the four corners of the earth) stretched along the spine of the Andes from what is now Ecuador to the north, to the Maule River in modern Chile to the south, and from the Pacific coast to the west, to the steamy jungles of the Amazon to the east.
It was ruled from the Inca capital of Cuzco situated roughly in the centre of the empire.
