Its capital is Brasília, its most populated city is São Paulo; the federation is composed of the union of the 26 states, the Federal District, the 5,570 municipalities. It is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language and the only one in the Americas. Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline of 7,491 kilometers, it borders all other South American countries except Ecuador and Chile and covers 47.3% of the continent's land area. Its Amazon River basin includes a vast tropical forest, home to diverse wildlife, a variety of ecological systems, extensive natural resources spanning numerous protected habitats; this unique environmental heritage makes Brazil one of 17 megadiverse countries, is the subject of significant global interest and debate regarding deforestation and environmental protection.
Brazil was inhabited by numerous tribal nations prior to the landing in 1500 of explorer Pedro Álvares Cabral, who claimed the area for the Portuguese Empire. Brazil remained a Portuguese colony until 1808, when the capital of the empire was transferred from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro. In 1815, the colony was elevated to the rank of kingdom upon the formation of the United Kingdom of Portugal and the Algarves. Independence was achieved in 1822 with the creation of the Empire of Brazil, a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system; the ratification of the first constitution in 1824 led to the formation of a bicameral legislature, now called the National Congress. The country became a presidential republic in 1889 following a military coup d'état. An authoritarian military junta came to power in 1964 and ruled until 1985, after which civilian governance resumed. Brazil's current constitution, formulated in 1988, defines it as a democratic federal republic. Due to its rich culture and history, the country ranks thirteenth in the world by number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Brazil is considered an advanced emerging economy. It has the ninth largest GDP in the world by nominal, eight and PPP measures, it is one of the world's major breadbaskets, being the largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years. It is classified as an upper-middle income economy by the World Bank and a newly industrialized country, with the largest share of global wealth in Latin America. Brazil is a regional power and sometimes considered a great or a middle power in international affairs. On account of its international recognition and influence, the country is subsequently classified as an emerging power and a potential superpower by several analysts. Brazil is a founding member of the United Nations, the G20, BRICS, Union of South American Nations, Organization of American States, Organization of Ibero-American States and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries, it is that the word "Brazil" comes from the Portuguese word for brazilwood, a tree that once grew plentifully along the Brazilian coast.
In Portuguese, brazilwood is called pau-brasil, with the word brasil given the etymology "red like an ember", formed from brasa and the suffix -il. As brazilwood produces a deep red dye, it was valued by the European textile industry and was the earliest commercially exploited product from Brazil. Throughout the 16th century, massive amounts of brazilwood were harvested by indigenous peoples along the Brazilian coast, who sold the timber to European traders in return for assorted European consumer goods; the official Portuguese name of the land, in original Portuguese records, was the "Land of the Holy Cross", but European sailors and merchants called it the "Land of Brazil" because of the brazilwood trade. The popular appellation eclipsed and supplanted the official Portuguese name; some early sailors called it the "Land of Parrots". In the Guarani language, an official language of Paraguay, Brazil is called "Pindorama"; this was the name the indigenous population gave to the region, meaning "land of the palm trees".
Some of the earliest human remains found in the Americas, Luzia Woman, were found in the area of Pedro Leopoldo, Minas Gerais and provide evidence of human habitation going back at least 11,000 years. The earliest pottery found in the Western Hemisphere was excavated in the Amazon basin of Brazil and radiocarbon dated to 8,000 years ago; the pottery was found near Santarém and provides evidence that the tropical forest region supported a complex prehistoric culture. The Marajoara culture flourished on Marajó in the Amazon delta from 800 CE to 1400 CE, developing sophisticated pottery, social stratification, large populations, mound building, complex social formations such as chiefdoms. Around the time of the Portuguese arrival, the territory of current day Brazil had an estimated indigenous population of 7 million people semi-nomadic who subsisted on hunting, fishing and migrant agriculture; the indigenous population of Brazil comprised several large indigenous ethnic groups. The Tupí people were subdivided into the Tupiniquins and Tupinambás, there were many subdivisions of the other gro

Elite Squad: The Enemy Within
Elite Squad: The Enemy Within is a 2010 Brazilian crime film directed, produced and co-written by José Padilha, starring Wagner Moura. It is a sequel to 2007 film Elite Squad, it furthers the plot of a semi-fictional account of BOPE, the special operations force of the Rio de Janeiro Military Police, with a focus on the relationship between law enforcement and politics. The film was released in Brazil on October 8, 2010. Having enjoyed public and critical acclaim, Elite Squad: The Enemy Within is the all-time largest box office ticket seller and highest-grossing film in Brazil, ahead of Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands and Avatar, respectively; the film was selected as the Brazilian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards, but it did not make the final shortlist. The film starts in 13 years after Baiano's death in the first film. Former BOPE Captain Roberto Nascimento exits a hospital and enters his car just as the vehicle is blocked and gunned down by unknown gunmen.
During the shootout, Nascimento begins to narrate the events leading to that point. Four years prior, now promoted to lieutenant colonel of BOPE and divorced from Rosane, arrives at Bangu Penitentiary Complex to shut down a prison riot started by gang boss Beirada, who demands that human rights activist Diogo Fraga come in to negotiate. After Fraga convinces Beirada to release the hostages taken during the riot, Nascimento's protégé Captain André Matias, who had Beirada held at gunpoint, executes him against Nascimento's orders, causing the operation to go awry. Fraga, current husband of Nascimento's ex-wife, subsequently expresses his outrage over the situation to the media. Afterwards, Nascimento learns PMERJ commander Formoso plans to dismiss him over the controversy and goes to a restaurant to confront him, only to be greeted by cheering diners who, led to believe the execution was ordered by Nascimento, approved of drug dealer's execution. Guaracy, Rio de Janeiro's State Secretary for Public Safety, exploits this situation by promoting Nascimento to State Subsecretary of Intelligence and expelling Matias from BOPE, demoting him to regular state police.
When Nascimento tries to convince Matias he can settle the situation, he rebukes him and goes to tabloid journalist Clara Vidal, giving her an interview about disregard of BOPE and the government's corruption practices, which leads to his detention. Meanwhile, Fraga leverages his influence to become a state representative in Rio's State Assembly and convinces Nascimento's son Rafael that his father is a bad influence on him. Nascimento continues to focus on his work, expanding BOPE's arsenal, increasing the number of officers and funding the department with armored vehicles and helicopters, enabling BOPE to eliminate drug cartels from multiple favelas. Despite his beliefs that the equipping of BOPE would bankrupt dirty cops, a group of dirty cops led by Major Rocha realize that they can extort money from entire favelas instead of just from dealers. Rocha's group forms a militia, which finances cable TV, water supplies, internet services and deliveries to the residents, forming a racket of money extortion from the favelas to amass money and acquiring political and public support.
Four years a group of disguised militia break into a police station in Tanque, one of the few remaining strongholds of Rio's drug trade after Nascimento's interventions, steal a number of police rifles as part of a plan devised by corrupt policemen and associate politicians to create an excuse to raid the place and get rid of local drug dealers. After listening to 300 hours' worth of tapped phone calls, Nascimento assures Secretary Guaracy there is no evidence that the dealers have taken the weapons. Corrupt Lieutenant-Colonel Fabio Barbosa, states that an informant of his indicate the dealers as culprits, the raid is authorized by the Governor. Matias, brought back into BOPE by Rocha's influence, orders to replace corrupt officers in a police station in an escape route to catch the fleeing dealers by surprise. After shooting them dead and torture drug lord Pepa and his men arrive and kill the remaining drug boss. Devastated by Matias' death and vowing revenge, aware Fraga has been investigating the militia activity, taps his phone.
Meanwhile, Clara goes into one of Rocha's favelas with a photographer to collect information about corrupt officers for a scoop, only to find promotional material for the Governor's re-election hidden in a deposit. As she calls Fraga and reveals what she has discovered, they are caught by Rocha and his group, Fraga overhears Rocha's voice right before he rapes and murders Clara and the photographer. Nascimento deduces Fraga is the next target. Since Fraga is with Rosane and Rafael, he records the data, takes it with him and goes after his family. Just after he leaves, Formoso finds out about his tapping of Fraga's phone and warns the corrupt officers about this. Nascimento heads for Fraga's apartment while trying to phone Rosane, but she deliberately ignores the calls; as Fraga and Rosane arrive, two men in a motorcycle try to murder Fraga in a drive-by shooting, but end up hitting Rafael in the chest instead. After Nascimento shoots misses. After Rafael is take
