Avg Population / Region
The Oriental Republic of the Uruguay lies on the eastern side of South America. It shares borders with Argentina and Brazil, and has an Atlantic coastline. The capital is Montevideo.
Inhabited first by indigenous tribes, including the Charrua, Uruguay was colonised much later than its neighbours. The Portuguese arrived in 1680 and established colonial territory and soon after, the Spanish founded Montevideo as a military stronghold. Uruguay gained independence in 1828 after a four-way struggle between Portugal and Spain, and then Argentina and Brazil. Throughout the nineteenth century it was subjected to foreign influence, with the military intervening in domestic politics. The 1960s and ‘70s saw a period of guerrilla activity which led to economic crises and military dictatorship. This continued until 1985, when democracy was restored. Uruguay is run as a democratic constitutional republic, divided into nineteen departments.
Uruguay has a had a more stable economy than many of its neighbours. With an export-oriented agricultural sector, over half of the land is used for sheep and cattle farming and Uruguay’s strongest exports have been beef, leather and wool. Fruit and maize are produced and manufacturing includes textiles and plastics. It has a well-educated workforce and the service sector, especially banking and tourism is prosperous.
With a heavily urbanised population - over 90% live in cities and half of the population is in and around Montevideo, Uruguay has a socially progressive reputation. Dubbed “the Switzerland of South America”, Uruguay was the first country in the continent with a welfare state, the first in the world to legalise cannabis and ranks high in terms of tolerance and inclusion issues. It has an advanced education system. The official language is Spanish, but Portunol, a hybrid of Spanish and Portuguese is also commonly spoken, especially along the Brazilian border.
The culture of Uruguay is heavily influenced by Europeans in music, art and literature. Soccer and basketball are the most followed sports.
On the world stage, Uruguay is a member of the United Nations and the Organisation of American States.
