Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, is a presidential republic located in the south east of South America. It is bordered to the north and north east by Brazil and to the west by Argentina. To the south and south east it sits on the Rio de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean.
Uruguay covers a total area of 176,215 km² and consists predominantly of vast fertile plains of an average of 100 m in height; the ‘cuchillas’, relatively small hills of not much over 500 m, can be seen here and there, rising above the plains. The coastal areas tend to be rocky, though southern coasts are sandy and flat, with sand bars giving rise to areas of lagoons. The total population numbers 3,251,526, mostly descendants of European immigrants.
The capital of Uruguay is Montevideo and the official language is Rioplatense Spanish, also widely spoken in Argentina.
The local currency is the Uruguayan Peso, and the most important economic sectors are agriculture (grain, potatoes, wine grapes, fruit) and livestock farming (cattle and sheep).
