Q:

What is the capital of Brazil?

A:

The capital of Brazil is Brasilia, which became the capital in 1960. The city is located in the central portion of Brazil. In 1955, the city was a desert until architects and designers turned the area into one of Brazil's most popular and successful cities.

Seven matches of the 2014 World Cup were held in Brasilia. The city has the highest income per person in all of Brazil. Its booming economy brings people in from all over the world to do business, compete in sports or to vacation. Because it is still a young city, Brasilia is somewhat of a melting pot of people from all over Brazil.
