Brazil officially the Federative Republic of Brazil is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region. It is the world’s fifth largest country, both by geographical area and by population. It is the largest lusophone country in the world, and the only one in the America.
Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline of 7,491 km.
The word “Brazil” comes from brazilwood, a tree that once grew plentifully along the Brazilian coast. In Portuguese, brazilwood is called pau-brasil, with the word brasil commonly given the etymology “red like an ember”, formed from Latin brasa and the suffix -il (from -iculum or -ilium). As brazilwood produces a deep red dye, it was highly valued by the European cloth industry and was the earliest commercially exploited product from Brazil.
The official name of the land, in original Portuguese records, was the “Land of the Holy Cross” but European sailors and merchants commonly called it simply the “Land of Brazil” on account of the brazilwood trade.
