Brazil is located in eastern South America and is the fifth largest country in the world. Its diverse ecosystems, including the Amazon Rainforest and the Pantanal wetlands, contribute to Brazil’s status as a global biodiversity hotspot.

Not only is it the largest country in South America, but it’s also the largest country in the entire southern hemisphere. It’s so large that it shares common boundaries with every South American country except Chile and Ecuador.

As the longest north-south directional country in the world, it also shares 4,600 miles (7,400 km) of coastline with the Atlantic Ocean along the east coast. While the capital of Brazil is Brasília, the largest city is São Paulo with Rio de Janeiro as the second largest.

Brazil is home to a diverse range of landscapes with mostly a tropical and temperate climate. One of the most notable ecosystems is its tropical rainforests in the Amazon Basin. Although deforestation is one of its biggest environmental challenges, the Amazon Rainforest is still home to a diverse range of vegetation and animal habitats.

Brazil has an extremely complex system of flowing rivers that drain into the Atlantic Ocean. The longest river is the Amazon River with the most discharge volume in the world. Brazil is also home to the largest waterfall in the world, the Iguazu Falls, along its border with Argentina.
