Outline Map of Brazil

Brazil is a country in South America with a population of 217 million (in 2023). This makes it the most populated country on the continent, followed by Colombia, with over 52 million. Having the largest population, it is also the largest in land mass, with 3.3 million square miles (or 8.5 million km²). It is the 5th largest country in the world for population and land mass. Over one century of mass immigration from all corners of the planet has made Brazil one of the most ethnically diverse nations in existence today.

Our simple Brazil map outline only shows the country’s international borders, without any internal state boundaries or major cities. It is a useful map for basic geography exercises or coloring activities. You can also give your students or kids the task of drawing various landmarks or geographical features onto the map, such as the Amazon basin, the longest rivers, the most important cities, and much more.

How many countries border Brazil? Brazil is so enormous that it borders all but 2 of the countries on the South American continent: Ecuador and Chile. Otherwise, Brazil has a land border with ten countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guiana (overseas department of France), Guyana, Paraguay, Perú, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

The coastline of Brazil is approximately 4,655 miles (7,491 km) long, bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Rio de Janeiro, Santos, and Salvador are its most important ports.

Rich in natural resources and production, Brazil is considered the world’s largest producer of many commodities. It holds the title for coffee, sugarcane, soy, and orange production, after which it shares a top position within the world context for everything else it grows or produces. Even though it is an industrial powerhouse and wealthy in resources, it is still considered highly unstable due to its political corruption. There is great inequality in the population, with both extreme poverty and extreme affluence.

Blank Map of Brazil with States

Brazil is a federation of states with one federal district. How many states does Brazil have? There are 26 states. They are traditionally separated into regions; however, these are geographical and not political regions. There are 5 regions: Northern, Northeast, Central-West, Southeast, and Southern. These regions are defined by law but are explicitly used for statistical purposes and the distribution of funds from the government. The governing itself of each state is an individual matter. While Brazilian states are autonomous, they do not hold the same power as the United States of America, for example. Ultimate decisions are made through a federal congress.

Brazil Blank Map with State Capitals

According to a study by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, 48.4% of the population self-identify as White, 43.8% as Pardo (Brown), 6.8% as Black, 1.1% as East Asian, and 0.4% as Indigenous. Similar to other South American countries, Brazil’s immigration and genealogical diversification began in the 1500s with the beginning of colonization.

The Portuguese were the first Europeans to arrive and the most significant influence on the country’s shape afterward. Today, Portuguese is the official language of Brazil. It is the only Portuguese-speaking country on the South American continent and in the Americas. As a direct result, its language plays an essential part in the identity and culture of Brazil.

  1. Equatorial: near the equator with hot and humid weather throughout the year
  2. Tropical: characterized by hot and humid weather, with distinct wet and dry seasons
  3. Semi-Arid: in the northeast region of Brazil, known for its arid climate
  4. Subtropical: the southern region of Brazil experiencing mild temperatures, with cool winters and warm summers
