The country I chose

The Partner that I chose that Canada is partners with was...
BRAZIL
LOCATION OF BRAZIL
Brazil is located in Eastern South America.
The co-ordinates of Brazil are 15.67 degrees south and 47.43 degrees west (BTW I couldn't get that small circle on top the represents the degrees sign so I had to write it out FYI). Brazil isn't really a big country according to the size of the world but it is considered or it is the biggest country in South America. It is located in the western side of the world (western hemisphere) and it is in the southern half of the world (southern hemisphere).
BRAZIL
This is the flag of Brazil. It contains the three most popular and national colors of Brazil.
The phrase "ordem e progresso" in the flag means "Order and Progress"
The colors are yellow, green and navy blue.
Population Of Brazil
The population of Brazil is 196.7 million brazilians. 0.86% is the population growth rate per year. It is the fifth most populous country in the world which means that Brazil is ranked 5th in the world for the size of the country. Amazing right? When the Portuguese arrived in 1500, they saw the natives as noble savages, or bazar people, and miscegenation (The interbreeding of people of different racial types) of the population began right away. But the Portuguese, like the Spanish in their South American possessions, had unknowingly brought diseases with them, against which many native groups were helpless due to lack of immunity. Measles, smallpox, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, and influenza killed tens of thousands of people.
Climate Of Brazil
Brazil is humid and rainy throughout the year in the equatorial zone of Brazil. It is 18 degrees Celsius all year round in the tropical zone. It is hot and dry in the semi arid zone or the place that is located in the tropics and subtropics. It has cool summers and warm winters in the highland zone of Brazil. It has mild winters in the subtropical zone.
Here is a video on Brazil's climate...
Physical Characteristics Of Brazil
Physical means using the body and characteristics means attributes so the body of Brazil contains many flowing , flying and windy attributes. Flowing attributes like the Amazon River in South America is the second longest river in the world and is the largest by water flow with an average discharge greater than the next seven largest rivers combined. FYI the average is 209,000 m³/s (cubic meter per second).
Amazon
River
Another physical attribute is the amazon rainforest. The Amazon rainforest, also known in English as Amazonian or the Amazon Jungle, is a moist broad leaf forest that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America. It is 5,500,000 km²
Another characteristic is the dry
plains of north-east Brazil. The basin (dry plains) covers 7.6% of the national territory. The dry plains are located in the semi arid zone of Brazil. There is no rain all year round because it is also close to the equator. The dry plains of north-east Brazil is in the tip top part of the semi arid zone which is close to the equator.
São Francisco river is another river. The São Francisco is a river in Brazil. With a length of 2,914 kilometers, it is the longest river that runs entirely in Brazilian territory, and the fourth longest in South America and overall in Brazil. The river's discharge rate is 2,943 m³/s (cubic meter per second)
This is my favorite snapshot of the
São Francisco River.
Economy
The economy of Brazil is the world's sixth largest by nominal GDP (Gross domestic product). Brazil is one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world with an annual average GDP growth rate of over 5 percent. In Brazilian reals (1 Brazilian Real equals $0.47 Canadian Dollar) , its GDP was estimated at $4.403 trillion reals in 2013($2.223 trillion USD). The Brazilian economy has been predicted to become one of the five largest economies in the world in the years to come. After the arrival of the Portuguese explorers in 1500, it was only in 1808 that Brazil obtained a permit from the Portuguese colonial government to set up its first factories and manufacturers. In the 21st century, Brazil reached the status of 8th largest economy in the world.
Culture And History of Brazil
The culture of Brazil is very simple and it can be explained in 3 words, beautiful, colorful and fun! What I mean by beautiful is..well...it's a country full of flowers, mountains, valleys and cities that are by the beautiful blue ocean and sunny beach! Or in other words this...
And what I mean by colorful is all the colors that make Brazil of the most colorful countries in the world. There is a mixture of spanish, portuguese and africans, too. In short form, here is table I found online on what type of people living there in Brazil.
-White 49.9%
-Black 6.3%
-Brown/Multiracial 43.2% (Because of the mix, this rate is quite high)
-Yellow (Asian) 0.5%
-Amerindian 0.3% (Amerindian is basically the people who already use to live in North and South America before the arrival of the Europeans)
So basically that is colorful in human form but what about nature. Well all the pictures you saw already are all colorful, weren't they?
What do I mean by fun is the sports, the beaches, and the mostly the gliding over Rio de Janeiro. I know one person who would go to Brazil over one reason, soccer and I'm pretty sure all you guys know who it is, Mofe of course! Soccer is the country's national sport. Where ever you go, you'll surely find a bunch of kids playing soccer or street soccer. The beaches are just amazing. Getting tanned and swimming, surfing and playing volleyball in the water is just so fun in the waters of the Brazilian ocean! And gliding in the air over Rio is just fantastic!
Okay now to the boring stuff. History of Brazil. I tried to find a video but all of them were either to long or to boring. So i decided to write it out. I will try to put excitement and nerdiness into this. So, the history of Brazil starts with native people of America, who arrived thousands of years ago by crossing the Bering land bridge into Alaska and then moving south. The first European to explore Brazil was Pedro Álvares Cabral on April 22, 1500 under the sponsorship of Portugal. From the 16th to the 19th century, Brazil was a settlement of Portugal. On September 7, 1822, the country declared its independence from Portugal and became a constitutional monarchy, the Empire of Brazil. A military coup (or a army under the command of the government of Brazil) in 1889 established a republican government. The country has seen a dictatorship from 1930 to 1934, from 1937 to 1945 and a period of military rule from 1964 to 1985. Well I guess that was nerdy instead of exciting.
