It's a great federal republic almost as Europe and for the variety of its aspects it resembles more to a continent that to a nation.
For some aspects it is a rich and sparkling state; for many other it is poor, needy and dangerous.
It possesses 7500 kilometers of coast on the Atlantic ocean, with the fantastic bay of Rio de Janeiro, cheerful El Salvador I give Bahia, the sweet Olinda, the beaches in Fortaleza and Recife, but also the greatest part of the Amazonian forest with the great river basins of the Rio Negro and the Solimenes.
It has over 160 million inhabitants, to a large extent black, but also with strong communities of Italian origin, Portuguese, Spanish and German; contrarily the autochtonous individuals are reduced to few hundred thousand, often marginalized in the most impervious and isolated zones.
The creation of Brasilia has been a futuristic urbanistic attempt and modestly succeeded, to try to move toward the inside the urbanization that almost entirely develops its on the coasts or in the proximities of the coasts, where the greatest cities and the great tourist attractions of Rio de Janeiro, of El Salvador do Bahia and also of Ouro Preto are situated.
