    Brazil Introduction - 2004
    https://immigration-usa.com/wfb2004/brazil/brazil_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2004 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      Following three centuries under the rule of Portugal, Brazil became an independent nation in 1822. By far the largest and most populous country in South America, Brazil has overcome more than half a century of military intervention in the governance of the country to pursue industrial and agricultural growth and development of the interior. Exploiting vast natural resources and a large labor pool, Brazil is today South America's leading economic power and a regional leader. Highly unequal income distribution remains a pressing problem.
