Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world in terms of area and population. With more than 200 million inhabitants, Brazil is also the most populous country in South America and even occupies 47.3 percent of the total area.
Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking country in America. Brazilian Portuguese has its own character. It differs from the European variant in its pronunciation and slightly modified grammar. Since I do not speak Portuguese, I cannot confirm this myself.
The currency is the Real (BRL).
