  Brazil - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Brazil faces a deep economic and social crisis due to its huge national debt, which consumes a disproportionate fraction of its GNP and is preventing much-needed investment and economic growth.
Brazil is characterised by the extensive low-lying Amazon Rainforest in the north, and a more open terrain of hills and (low) mountains to the south, home to most of Brazil's population and its agricultural base.
Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking nation in the Americas, giving it a distinct national culture separate from its Spanish-speaking neighbors.

 Federation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In a federation, the self-governing status of the component states is constitutionally entrenched and may not be altered by a unilateral decision of the central government.
The difference between a federation and this kind of unitary state is that in a unitary state the autonomous status of self-governing regions exists at the sufferance of the central government, and may be unilaterally revoked.
Alternatively, or in addition to this practice, the members of an upper house may be indirectly elected by the government or legislature of the component states, as occurred in the United States prior to 1913, or be actual members or delegates of the state governments, as, for example, is the case in the German Bundesrat.

Brazil ran a deficit (including interest payments) in 1995 equal to five percent of GDP after four years of nearly balanced budgets, but was able to reduce this figure to four percent of GDP in 1996 and will likely realize a slightly lower operational deficit in 1997.

Brazil has impressed international financial markets by its capacity to react quickly and take measures to minimize the effects of the economic turmoil that began in Asia, moved to Russia and then confronted the nation in mid 1998/early 1999.
Brazil is of critical importance to U.S. citizens because of such issues as the global effects of environmental degradation in Brazilian rainforests, the rate of population growth of a country already having 160 million people and the spread of infectious diseases, such as HIV/AIDS.
Brazil's main challenges in addressing global environmental priorities are reducing biodiversity loss and the threat of global climate change (GCC) by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the land use and energy sectors.
