Brazil is the largest and arguably most powerful nation in South America. They are mainly Roman Catholic and some political parties in the nation are left leaning. The nation is mainly composed of White and Pardos (mix of White and Black). It also has a sizable Black community. In total it has the 5th most people of any nation in the world.
Like a lot of nations, Brazil has major problems. Not super huge ass problems like Iraq but still some pretty bad stuff here. The Brazilian Rain forest is being cut in acres every day. It holds the worlds largest amount of biodiversity. It is possible that cures for diseases are in the rain forests.
Despite corruption problems and environmental problems Brazil still is seen by some as the most powerful Latin American state. It is often seen as an emerging major power.
