Brasil is an Portuguese associated kingdom located in Southern Antília (OTL South America).It borders Nouvelle France at north, Uttarshina and the Aymará Equalist Republic at west, and Argentina at southwest.


At the time of European discovery, the territory of current day Brasil had as many as 2,000 tribes. The indigenous peoples were traditionally mostly semi-nomadic tribes who subsisted on hunting, fishing, gathering, and migrant agriculture. When the Portuguese arrived in 1497, the Natives were living mainly on the coast and along the banks of major rivers. Initially, the Europeans saw the natives as noble savages, and miscegenation of the population began right away.

Tribal warfare, cannibalism and the pursuit of the pau-brasil for its treasured red dye convinced the Portuguese that they should civilize the Natives. But the Portuguese had unknowingly brought diseases with them, against which many Natives were helpless due to lack of immunity. Measles, smallpox, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, and influenza killed tens of thousands. The diseases spread quickly along the indigenous trade routes, and whole tribes were likely annihilated without ever coming in direct contact with Europeans.

In November 1497, Brasil was discovered by Portugal on the arrival of the Portuguese fleet commanded by Duarte Pacheco Pereira on what today is the coast of Tremembé.The Portuguese encountered stone-using natives divided into several tribes, many of whom shared the same language family, and fought among themselves.

Despite the attempts at trade with India, Portugal only managed to get a foothold there in the early 17th century, and trade even ceased entirely when Bengal and the Caliphate started to be dominant on India, around 1560, thus making Portugal concentrate more on Brasil.Most of the early colonisation attempts were financed by the crown.In the 1530's seeking to cut costs, the capitaincy system that worked on Açores and Madeira was implemented on Brasil, with the capitaincies being donated to Portuguese noblemen, who were in turn responsible for the occupation of the land and answered to the monarch.However, the capitães-mores appointed by the colonists were not removed, which proved useful when not many of the capitães-donatários actually came to Brasil, particularly on north.

Starting in the mid-16th century, sugarcane culture, grown in plantation's property called engenhos ("factories") along the northeast coast became the base of Brazilian economy, with the use of black slaves on large plantations to make sugar production for export to Europe. At first, settlers tried to enslave the Natives as labor to work the fields. (The exploration of Brazil's interior was largely due to para-military adventurers, the bandeirantes, who entered the jungle in search of gold and Native slaves.) However the Natives were found to be unsuitable as slaves, and so the Portuguese land owners turned to Africa, whence they imported millions of slaves.

Following the discovery of gold in Minas Gerais in the late 17th century, large-scale immigration to Brasil from the Iberian kingdoms began.In the 19th century, The desire for responsible government resulted in the abortive Rebellions of 1822. The Lusignan Report subsequently recommended responsible government, which was only granted in 1828.Following several constitutional conferences, the 1850 Constitution Act officially proclaimed Brasilian Confederation on December 1, 1850, initially with six provinces – Pernambuco, Bahia, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais and São Vicente.Later, in 1853, Brasil assumed control of the recently-formed colony of Maranhão, made up of the northern capitanias, and in 1854, the colony of Uruguai also was transferred to Brasil.
