Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil (in Portuguese: Federative Republic of Brazil), is a sovereign country of South America that includes the eastern half of the subcontinent and some groups of small islands in the Atlantic Ocean. With an area estimated at more than 8.5 million km², it is the fifth largest country in the world in total area (equivalent to 47% of the South American territory). Delimited by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Brazil has a coastline of 7,491 km to the north, bordered by the French overseas department of French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana and Venezuela; to the northwest with Colombia; to the west with Peru and Bolivia; to the southeast with Paraguay and Argentina, and to the south with Uruguay. In this way it has a border with all the countries of South America, except Ecuador and Chile. The majority of the country is included among the terrestrial tropics, so the climatic seasons do not feel in a radical way in much of the same. The Amazon rainforest covers 3.6 million km² of the territory. Thanks to its vegetation and climate, it is one of the countries with the most animal species in the world.
