Country Closed Due to Census

The president of Peru ordered everyone in the country to stay home for 10 hours on Sunday so a census could be taken.

Half a million student volunteers were going from door to door to collect information about income, education level, jobs, religion and marital status.
Although the government did not establish sanctions for people disobeying the order to stay home, police were "inviting" people to go home if they were out on the street. [Link]
