Brazil, the world's fifth largest country, dominates almost half of South America. Covering more than five-million-square miles, it spans four time zones and exceeds the size of the contiguous 48 United States. Brazil's territory displays great topographical variety, including mountains, plains, rainforests, islands and 4,600 miles of Atlantic coastline—a seemingly endless stretch of white and gold beaches.
Brazil is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, with approximately four million plant and animal species. The Panatal, a 75,000-square mile wetland, is located in Brazil's southern interior. During the dry season (April to September) this area teems with fauna: toucans, jaguars, giant river otters and an estimated 1,000 bird species. The Amazon Basin, covering the country's northwest, contains the world's largest rainforest—home to one-third of all species on the planet.
Brazil's human population is also diverse. European, Asian, African and indigenous peoples add to the cultural milieu. Brazil has the largest Japanese population outside Japan, and the largest Italian population outside Italy. Each region of the country possesses a unique local flavor—from the German villages of Santa Catarina to the Afro-Brazilian cities of the northeast.
