Portugal is a parliamentary republic and member of the EU and NATO; it is located in Southern Europe, on the western edge of the Iberian Peninsula. It has 850 km of coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. It is bordered by Spain to the north and east. The Portuguese Republic also includes the archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira. It is subdivided into 18 districts.
The country, including its overseas territories, covers a total area of 92,391 km²; the continental landscape is made up principally of vast alluvial plains, leading to the hills and mountains of the northern Serra de Estrela, as well as higher ground in the extreme south. The low-lying, flat coastal areas are alternated by rugged, rocky areas around the headlands.
The total population numbers 10,675,572, according to 2012 estimates; a proportion of these are immigrants from Portuguese-speaking African countries. The country’s capital is Lisbon and the local currency is the Euro.
The local economy is based mainly on services and trade; the main activities are manufacturing (petrochemical, electronics, electrical, automotive and naval), fishing and tourism.
