Chile:

There is a place in the word known to be the driest as well as the only true desert to receive less precipitation than the polar deserts and the largest fog desert in the world. 
 
Amazing right?
 
The driest place on earth officially is in the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile and southern Peru, in western South America (Figure SM4.3).
 
There are locations in the Atacama that have not received measurable rainfall in decades. The factors that converge to make the Atacama Desert so arid include the rain shadow effect from the Andes, the cold offshore ocean current, and the subtropical high pressure system.
