Background: Following three centuries under the rule of Portugal , Brazil became an independent nation in 1822 and a republic in 1889.

Exploiting vast natural resources and a large labor pool , it is today South America's leading economic power and a regional leader. Highly unequal income distribution and crime remain pressing problems. British Indian Ocean Territory
