Brazil is the largest country in Latin America, with a population of about 210 million, ranking number 6 in the world. Its economy is the twelfth largest in the world. The GDP per capita is about 6,780 USD, putting it among upper-middle-income countries. Brazil boasts the world’s largest rainforest. After the far-right Jair Bolsonaro took office in 2019, he embraced capitalism with open arms. Its rainforests are being slowly destroyed as land is cleared for cattle ranching and agriculture and the number of annual forest fires increases.
