It is one of the smallest nations of the Latin America, located between Brazil and Argentina, overlooks to east the Atlantic Ocean and to South the immense estuary of the Rio de la Plata, formed by the confluence of the River Uruguay with the Parană.
It is a not much inhabited nation (only 19 inhab/ Kmq), in which more than 1/3 of the population lives in in the sweet capital Montevideo, placed on the estuary of the Rio de la Plata almost in front of Buenos Aires.
It is an agricultural country, where big spaces are used in prevalence for the stock farms of oxen and ovine.
Despite of the brutal crisis of the end of the last century, Uruguay is maybe the most progressive socially and economically country of the Latin America. You can think that the school system is entirely free, that graduateds are beyond the 10% of the population and that illiterates are instead only the 2%.
