Basic Facts

  • Population: 3,477,779
  • Capital: Montevideo
  • Fun Facts: Uruguay is the second smallest country in South America, larger only than Suriname. Uruguay is politically and socially the most stable country in South America with the most egalitarian distribution of wealth. 94% of all households are above the poverty line - for comparison: Paraguay: 64%, Brazil: 61%. Uruguay also has the lowest corruption level of all of South America. Uruguay has some great old vehicles left over from the economic boom during the first half of the century but then cars became prohibitively expensive since the economic crisis and the ensuing military dictatorship of the 1970s so the mechanics became wizards at keeping them running and if you keep you eyes peeled you are guaranteed to see some real beauties.
