Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world, with an
area of eight and a half million square kilometers.
The culture of Brazil is the result of the melting pot of
races and cultural influences that helped shape this
country. Brazilian culture has been shaped not only
by the Portuguese, who gave the country its religion
and language, but also by the country's native
Indians, the considerable African population, and
other settlers from Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Brazil is officially a Catholic country, but in practice
the country's religious life incorporates Indian
animism, African cults, Afro-Catholic syncretism and
Kardecism, a spiritualist religion embracing Eastern
mysticism, which is gaining popularity with Brazilian
Whites. The Brazilian constitution guarantees
absolute freedom of religion.
