Learn about the country on Wikipedia. Here is a moderated excerpt:
Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers and with over 211 million people, Brazil is the world’s fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, and its most populous city is São Paulo. It is the largest country to have Portuguese (namely Brazilian Portuguese) as an official language and the only one in the Americas. It is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations, due to over a century of mass immigration from around the world, as well as the most populous Roman Catholic-majority country.
Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline of 7,491 kilometers. It borders all other countries in South America except Ecuador and Chile and covers 47.3% of the continent’s land area. Its Amazon basin includes a vast tropical forest, home to diverse wildlife, a variety of ecological systems, and extensive natural resources spanning numerous protected habitats.
Brazil is classified as an upper-middle income economy by the World Bank. It is a newly industrialized country, with the largest share of global wealth in South America. The country is an advanced emerging economy, with the twelfth largest GDP in the world by nominal, and eighth by PPP measures. It is one of the world’s major breadbaskets, being the largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years.
