The official Portuguese name of the land, in original Portuguese records, was the "Land of the Holy Cross" ( Terra da Santa Cruz ), [29] but European sailors and merchants commonly called it simply the "Land of Brazil" ( Terra do Brasil ) on account of the brazilwood trade. [30] The popular appellation eclipsed and eventually supplanted the official Portuguese name. Some early sailors called it the "Land of Parrots". [31]

In the Guarani language , an official language of Paraguay , Brazil is called "Pindorama". This was the name the indigenous population gave to the region, meaning "land of the palm trees". [32]

Around the time of the Portuguese arrival, the territory of current day Brazil had an estimated indigenous population of 7 million people, [37] mostly semi-nomadic who subsisted on hunting, fishing, gathering, and migrant agriculture. The indigenous population of Brazil comprised several large indigenous ethnic groups (e.g. the Tupis , Guaranis , Gês and Arawaks ). The Tupí people were subdivided into the Tupiniquins and Tupinambás , and there were also many subdivisions of the other groups. [38]

Local travel in Brazil is always easy. Public transport outside of the Amazon is generally by bus or plane, though there are a few passenger trains, too. However you travel, services will be crowded, plentiful and, apart from planes, fairly cheap. Car rental is possible, but driving in Brazil is not for the faint-hearted. Hitchhiking, over any distance, is not recommended.

When buying your international ticket, you should consider the possibility of adding an air pass , though note that the emergence of budget airlines in the country means that they now only make sense if you’re planning a series of long-haul trips – from the South to the Amazon and back via the Northeast, for example.

If Brazil is only one stop on a longer trip, consider the Mercosur Airpass , which covers eight airlines of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. The regulations are fairly complicated but the passes basically allow two stopovers per country (plus point of origin) up to a maximum of eight, although an extra stopover is allowed to give you use of both the Argentine and Brazilian airports at Iguaçu Falls. The route must include at least two countries, and the price of a pass is based on the number of miles flown, which always works out costing far less than purchasing regular tickets. Prices may be affected by the time of year that you travel.

This culturally rich East African nation has always been an enticing destination, and though it remains poor, independent travel around the country is becoming easier thanks to a boom in small hotels and restaurants. Take your pick of spell-binding attractions: untouched national parks, the ancient cities of Aksum , Harar and Lalibela , the world’s first coffee plantations, the largest cave in Africa at Sof Omar and the continent’s largest concentration of UNESCO sites.

It’s tough to find somewhere more exotic than this former French colony in the Indian Ocean, the world’s fourth largest island. For starters over ninety percent of Madagascar ‘s wildlife is found nowhere else on the planet (yes, including the majestic baobab trees, scary fossa and cutesy lemurs portrayed in the DreamWorks movie), and tourism is – as yet – undeveloped, meaning blissfully untouched forests and empty beaches. The Andasibe-Mantadia National Park , four hours from the capital Antananarivo , is the best place to meet those mischievous primates.

Brazil is hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2014, while the Olympics are coming to Rio in 2016, and the nation’s extended “coming out” party means that infrastructure, hotels and amenities are being upgraded as never before. There’s a lot more to Brazil than sports, of course; the Iguaçu Falls blow Niagara away, old mining towns like Ouro Preto drip with colonial history and the dynamic city of Salvador is a gorgeous mélange of samba, Afro-Brazilian culture and crumbling Portuguese architecture.

In terms of geography, demography (the study of populations) and economics, there are a number of ways countries around the world are deemed "the biggest" or "largest" or "most populous" -- somewhat arbitrary superlatives to rank countries from first to 196th .

When observing landmass , for instance, Russia is the largest country in the world at 6,592,771 square miles with Canada's 3,854,082 square miles placing it well behind Russia in second, and the United States at just under that with 3,717,727 square miles of landmass to its name.

However, landmass is not the best way to measure the strength or even size of a country, the gross domestic product -- or amount of monetary value it produces and possesses -- and the population of the country are much more indicative tools to measure size.
