The article focuses on the socio-economical and political environment of Brazil. There is an extraordinary diversity in Brazil. This diversity separates regions of different latitudes, geological structures, landforms, climate and vegetation. The personality of the country is being molded by the combination and assimilation of very heterogeneous ethnic and cultural components. Regardless of the complexity of Brazil's ethnic and cultural composition, one feels there is a unique Brazilian theme ringing through the country. The importance of some immigrant groups derives first and foremost from the fact that they are bearers of culture, capable, even in relatively small numbers, of enriching the Brazilian heritage. The mass movement of people from the rural areas to the cities obviously has profound social, economic and political implications. Brazil has undergone the changes from colony to monarchy to republic and has weathered several revolutions in the course of its history. None of these movements effectively demolished the archaic social and economic framework carried over from colonial times.
