Relief of Brazils


Most of the people of Brazil live near the Atlantic Ocean, notably in the great cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, but the capital is inland, at Brasília, which has a population of 2,455,903 (2007 estimate). The country, which was once a Portuguese dependency, is the world’s leading producer of coffee, and it also contains great mineral resources; exploitation of many of these resources intensified during the 1980s and 1990s.
