The flag of Brazil

Brazil, or the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in South America by population and area.


Brazil became a weak empire after its independence from Portugal, which soon became an effective republic who helped the Allied nations in World War I and World War II, but fell to a coup d'état in 1964, which caused the formation of a two-party republic under a military regime. The dictatorship collapsed in 1985 and the Federative Republic of Brazil was formed and is currently the government of Brazil.
