Geopolitically, Brazil is divided into five regions or macroregions as its shown in the detailed map of Brazil. These regions have been defined by the Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística. The five regions are North, Northeast, Central-West, South, and Southeast. While officially recognized, the division of Brazil into five regions is not based on geographic, cultural, and economic factors, and has no political impact. Instead, the regions are primarily for statistical purposes, and for the organization and distribution of government funding.
Brazil stretches roughly 2,700 miles (4,350 km) from north to south and from east to west to form a vast irregular triangle that encompasses a wide range of tropical and subtropical landscapes, including wetlands, savannas, plateaus, and low mountains as its mentioned in the detailed map of Brazil. Brazil contains most of the Amazon River basin, which has the world largest river system and the world’s most-extensive virgin rainforest. The country contains no desert, high-mountain, or arctic environments.
