    Brazil-icon.png HueballYOU'RE GOING TO Brazilball, officially called KKKball the Federative Republic of Brazilball (Also known as Varsilball), is hue Ricardo Milos a anaconda sovereign stateball and federal republic in South America. It is made up of 26 federal stateballs and 1 federal districtball, (being its capital Distrito Federal (Brasil)-icon.png Brasiliaball,) giving it a total area of 8.5 million square kilometres and making him the fifth-largest countryball in the world. It has the 8th largest economy of the world, the richest in Latin America and second in the Americas. It is the second-most populous country in The Americas and is the sixth-most populous countryball in the world with 210 million of people. It is a very multicultural and multiethnic, all resulting of the syncretism and mix of different people.

    It is a member of BRICS-icon.png BRICSbrick, OAS-icon.png OASball, and UN-icon.png UNball. Brazilball is also a major non-NATO ally in South America along with Argentina-icon.png Argentinaball.

It is practically the most powerful countryball in the Americas after USA-icon.png USAball, alongside with Canada-icon.png Canadaball.

    It is a countryball in the western and south hemispheres being a tropical countryball in the South Atlantic ocean.

However, the country is going through a process of deindustrialization that raises doubts about this statement.

    Having the Amazon Rainforest, Brazilball seems all set to lead the way in tackling the environmental problems we face.

    Its national day is on September 7th. Its astrological sign is Virgo.

    Even if the character doesn't have an exact gender (like all the characters in the Polandball universe) i's name is a male noun in the native language of the country (Portuguese-icon.png Portuguese).

    Brazilball is also one of the newly industrialized countryballs, with the others being China-icon.png Chinaball, India-icon.png Indiaball, Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball, Malaysia-icon.png Malaysiaball, Mexico-icon.png Mexicoball, Philippines-icon.png The Philippinesball, South Africa-icon.png South Africaball, Thailand-icon.png Thailandball and Turkey-icon.png Turkeyball.

    As Brazilball is friendly to everyone, it doesn't have as much known enemies than friends, it is one of the few countries that maintains stable diplomatic relations with almost all the balls, despite having considerable armed forces it doesn´t live for war, and tries to solve the problems peacefully, engaging in multilateral diplomacy and the non-intervention, but if a countryball could be hostile with Brazilball, it can be a powerful opponent, for example when in January 1835, Brazil can into removings Nigeria-icon.png Yam.

And a little with Uruguay-icon.png Uruguayball because of 1950 Maracanazo.

    History

    Brazilball was born as many 3-icon.png Armendian tribes such as the Guarani-icon.png Tupi-Guaraníball (southern Brazil), Carib-icon.png Caribball (northern Brazil), and Arawak-icon.png Arawakball and Pano-Tacananballs (western Brazil). There were also the natives of the island of Marajo that had a thriving society from the 800s to the 15th century, as well as the Kuhikugu culture in Mato Grosso-icon.png Mato Grossoball at the Xingu river. The Tupian, Guarani, Pano-Tacanan, Arawakan, and Cariban languages were spoken all around Brazil. All the natives living at the coast lived in peace until 04/22/1500, when PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball arrived with Pedro Álvares Cabral and claimed that Brazil was part of Portugalball. Portugalball adopted it, and then, it became Portuguese Brazil-icon.png Portuguese Brazilball.

    Invasions! (around 1500)

    Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball saw everything and started trying to negotiate with the PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball to get Brazil's guard. However, PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball denied, and a tension started between the two Iberian brothers. A war was just a matter of time... But, the two siblings signed a treaty.

    PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball and Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball signed in 1494 the Treaty of Tordesillas, an agreement to divide the South American territories conquered by the two countries during the relatives navigations,and Braziball's Clay was divided in Portuguese and Spanish control, meanwhile, Brazilball was planting sugar cane with the work of 8-icon.png 8ball, its slave.

    Meanwhile, in Europe, Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball decided to invade Portuguese Brazil-icon.png Brazilball’s clay and take to itself, and took Recifeball and placed the Count Maurice of Nassau in the command of Dutch Brazil-icon.png the New Holland colony, but PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball invaded the colony's clay and reconquered Recifeball from the Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball.

    Kingdom of France-icon.png Franceball also tried to invade Portuguese Brazil-icon.png Brazilball in Rio de Janeiroball, and PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball crushed its too. PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball bravely fought to defend its biggest child.

    By the end of the seventeenth century, due to colonial competition, Brazilian sugar exports began to decline, but the discovery of gold by the bandeirantes in the 1690s opened a new cycle for the extractive economy of the colony, promoting a gold fever in Brazil, which attracted thousands of new settlers, coming not only from Portugal, but also from other Portuguese colonies around the world

    Hue Independence, or death! (1700 - 1822)

    In 1700, PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball started to expand the now minor Brazilball's territories. Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball didn't care about it, and Portuguese Brazil-icon.png Brazilball started to get even more huge and rich and around 2 million 8-icon.png 8balls were brought over to the Amazon for coffee and cotton. However, many 3-icon.png 3balls died as a consequence of the diseases moving over... Eventually, the Treaty of Madrid in 1750 completed this expansion between Brazil and the Spanish viceroyalties.

    In the mid of 1800, Napoleonic-icon.png Franceball was raping everyone in Europe, PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball was scared about this, so it fled to its child's clay, and turned it into a United Kingdom with itself (United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarvesball), taking Banda Oriental-icon.png Uruguayball from the Liga de los Pueblos Libres-icon.png Liga de los Pueblos Libresball. However, Portuguese Brazil-icon.png Brazilball was inspired by the colonies rebelling against their parents after the 1820 Liberal Revolution, so it decided a plan to attack its parent and become a fully independent country.

    On January 9, 1822, D. Pedro I (Brazilball's first emperor) received a letter from the courts of Lisbon-icon.png Lisbonball, demanding his return to PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball. The Portuguese had long insisted on this idea, since they intended to recolonize Brazil, and the presence of Dom Pedro impeded this ideal. However, D. Pedro responded negatively to the calls of PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball, who later received a new letter from Portuguese Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball that cancelled the Constituent Assembly and demanded its immediate return to the metropolis. This news reached the hands of D. Pedro I, who it raised its sword and marked the Independence of Brazilball.

    In September 7 of 1822, Brazilball got its independence and become Kingdom of Brazil (1822)-icon.png an independent kingdom, and in December of 1822, with Pedro I's crowning and consecration, the kingdom became the Brazilian Empire-icon.png Empire of Brazilball.

    The war of independence of Brazilball, initiated throughout this process, spread by the North, Northeast and to the South regions of Brazilball. The last PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Portugalballs surrendered on March 8, 1824, and independence being recognized by Portugalball on August 29, 1825, in the treaty of Rio de Janeiro.

    Kingdom of Brazil (1822)-icon.png Imperial Days (1822 - 1889) Brazilian Empire-icon.png

    In its early days as an independent country, Brazilian Empire-icon.png Brazilball was already of stronk, raping a lot of neighbors such as United Provinces of Rio de la Plata-icon.png United Provinces of the Río de la Plataball and its son Uruguay-icon.png Uruguayball (A.K.A Provincia Cisplatina-icon.png Cisplatinaball), and a lot of rebellious provinces.

    In 1825, when Provincia Cisplatina-icon.png Cisplatinaball declared independence (as Banda Oriental-icon.png Banda Orientalball), Brazilian Empire-icon.png Brazilball declared war on United Provinces of Rio de la Plata-icon.png United Provinces of the Río de la Plataball, starting the Cisplatine War. UK-icon.png UKball interrupted and made Cisplatinaball an independent country, and Oriental State of Uruguay-icon.pngUruguayball was created. In 1851, it won the Platinean war against Argentine Confederation-icon.png Argentine Confederationball.

    In the mid of 1864, Paraguay-icon.png Paraguayball tried to invade it, Brazilian Empire-icon.png Brazilball then, formed an alliance with Argentina-icon.png Argentinaball and Uruguay-icon.png Uruguayball, and together they defeated Paraguay-icon.png Paraguayball during the Paraguayan War. After this, it became even more stronger, even challenging UK-icon.png UKball to another war.

    A lot of rebellions occurred inside Brazilian Empire-icon.png Brazilball during the period of 1831-1840. The most important were the Cabanagem (1835-1840), the Balaiada (1838-1841),Ragamuffin War (1835-1845), and the Sabinada (1837-1838).

    Only after years of commercial and maritime pressure exerted by the UK-icon.png UKball under the Bill Aberdeen Act did Brazilball agree to abandon international 8-icon (colony).png slave trade in 1850. Despite this it was only in 1888, after a long process of internal mobilization and debate for the moral and legal dismantling of slavery, that it was formally abolished in Brazilball. On May 13, 1888, Princess Isabel, the presumptive heir of the Empire of Brazilball, signed a law that abolished 8-icon (colony).png 3-icon (colony).png slavery in Brazil-icon.png Brazilball, who was in force for about three centuries, from the beginning of colonization to the signing of this law.

    Brazilball had years of glory, and in November 15, 1889 throughout a coup d'état it became the Brazil-icon.pngFirst Brazilian Republic with the (coup d'etat) Proclamation of the Republic.

    This was the result of a political-military uprising that started the Presidential Federative Republic. The figure of Marcehal Deodoro da Fonseca is marked as responsible for the effective proclamation and as the first President of the Brazilian Republic in a provisional government (1889-1891).

    USB-icon.png First Republic (1889 - 1930) Brazil-icon.png

    Initially, the republic was a centralized and authoritarian military dictatorship, ruled by the perpetrators of the coup. In 1891, a new constitution created the USB-icon.pngUnited States of Brazilball, a democratic state. However, this democracy was just an illusion, like a "oligarchic democracy", as the presidency alternated between rural landowners from São Paulo-icon.png São Pauloball and Minas Gerais-icon.png Minas Geraisball. In order to maintain this political scheme, elections were frequently rigged and, in rural areas, people were even forced to vote on a specific candidate. However, after an economic crisis caused by excessive amounts of coffee and popular discontent with the falsified elections, a revolution erupted in the 1920s

    In 1896, a conflict started between the state of Brazil and some settlers who had founded a community named "Canudos" in the northeastern state of Bahia-icon.png Bahiaball.

    The great ranchers of the region began a strong pressure group with the recently installed Republic, requesting that measures be taken against the community. After a number of unsuccessful attempts at military suppression, it came to a brutal end in October 1897, when a large Brazilian force overran the village and killed nearly all the inhabitants of the region.

    In this first period, the new republican country maintained a relative balance in relation to foreign policy, which was only broken by a territorial dispute against Bolivia-icon.png Boliviaball over Acre-icon.png Acreball (1899-1902) and by the country's involvement in World War I (1914-1918).

    In the term of the Conservative Rodrigues Alves, Brazilall faced some uprisings, but Alves was a good president. Alves organized major works in the city of Rio de Janeiroball and enjoyed a strong economy. It was during its term that Acreball became part of Brazilball

    Another Conservative president, Hermes da Fonseca (nephew of Deodoro da Fonseca) created the "politics of salvation", where it used federal troops to guarantee intervention in the Brazilian stateballs to fignt the oligarchies... but it was unsucessfull. He also faced a wave of workers' strikes in several states. He decreed the State of Siege in the capital (Rio de Janeiroball) as a way of controlling the labor movement and containing the strikes. Hermes da Fonseca also decreed State of Siege in the state of Cearáball. It was a measure to control and weaken the social movement known as Juazeiro's Revolt, which was led by the Catholic Priest Father Cicero.

    In the government of Venceslau Brás (successor of Hermes da Fonseca) Brazilball entered World War I, against the Central Powers. Brazilball sent a corps of doctors and an expeditionary group to the war.

    The cycle of the First Republic comes to an end with the coup of 1930, when a guy named Getúlio Vargas assumed the presidency.

    Brazil Dictatorship-icon.png Vargas Regime Getúlio Vargas-icon.png (1930 - 1945)

    In 1930, after killing some Porpoises in Porpoises Battle in Gibraltar channel in World War I, Brazil-icon.png Brazilball was at war with himself in a revolution, Revolution of 1930, that would depose the original republic, and be replaced with a totalitarian dictatorship led by its newest president Getúlio Vargas.

    The elections for the President of the Republic were held. This election gave victory to ruling candidate Julio Prestes. Prestes, however, did not take office. The Liberal Alliance (name given to the allied states of Minas Gerais-icon.png Minas Geraisball, Rio Grande do Sul-icon.png Rio Grande do Sulball and other states) refused to accept the validity of the elections, claiming that the victory of Julio Prestes was due to fraud.

    Getúlio Vargas, another candidate, took advantage of this to use it in its favor, blaming the opposition, as well as the economic crisis accentuated by the crisis of 1929; so the indignation increased, and the Brazilian army began to mobilize and formed a governmental board composed of army generals. Julio Prestes was deposed and the power then was passed to Getúlio Vargas putting an end to the Old Republic.

    At 1937, Getúlio Vargas installed a totalitarian dictatorship called Estado Novo which ideals were inspired in Fascist Italy-icon.png Fascist Italy.

    During World War II, Getúlio Vargas initially adopted a neutral stance, when USA-icon.png USAball get into war, they were preocupated of the countries in the rest of Latin America get into Axis, and started the good neighbor policy with all praticaly improving economics and diplomatics relationships and preseting their cultures, especially with Brazil, because the regime was similar to Fascist Italy-icon.png Italy and Nazi-icon.png Germany, but in 1942 shifted to the allied powers after some Brazilian ships were sunk by German and Italian submarines just like World War I. During this time, Brazil-icon.png Brazil contributed to the war effort by accepting USA to construct an Air Bases at the Nordeste region to North Africa Campaing, and at 1944 providing a small expeditionary force to fight in Fascist Italy-icon.pngFascist Italy, fighting with some Nazi-icon.pngNazi Germanyballs too, along with USA-icon.pngUSAball who helped with him with military resources and training. But Brazil surprised the expectations, had an outstanding peformance and some importance on that area in the war.

    Many economic changes were done in that era, leading to a development of the economy from Brazil-icon.png Brazilball. Because of the industry development helped by USA-icon.png USAball , they created the first steel industry of Brazil-icon.png Brazilball.

    Brazil-icon.png Fourth Republic (1946 - 1964) Brazil-icon.png

    After the end of the war, Getúlio Vargas would not remain in the presidency for too long. He was deposed, and in 1946, Republic-icon.png democracy returned to Brazil-icon.png Brazilball. This, however, would be Brazilball's most unstable days, with only two of the presidents serving their full terms. Getúlio Vargas attempted to return to power, but committed suicide due to political pressure. Did I mention the killer bee release? Anyway, in 1955, the social-democrat Juscelino Kubitschek was elected president and took office in January 1956, although it faced attempted coups. His government was characterized by the so-called developmentalism, a doctrine that stopped in the technical-industrial advances as supposed evidence of a general advance of the country. The motto of "developmentalism" under Kubitschek was 50 years in 5. In 1960, Kubitschek inaugurated Distrito Federal (Brasil)-icon.png Brasiliaball, Brazilball's current capital.

    In 1961, the conservative Jânio Quadros assumed the presidency of the republic, having as vice-president the social-democrat João Goulart (there were elections for president and for vice-president in two different plates).

    With the resignation of Quadros on August 29, 1961 and after a period of institutional instability, Goulart assumed the presidency of the country.

    Brazil Dictatorship-icon.png Military Dictatorship (1964 - 1985) Brazil-icon (soldier).png

    In its term as vice-president, João Goulart wasn't interested in anything other than in visiting China-icon.png Chinaball for a diplomatic mission, during the middle of the Cold War, plus there were army rebellions happening all the time. São Paulo-icon.png São Pauloball and former Guanabaraball (now capital of Rio de Janeiro-icon.png Rio de Janeiroball) plus civil society got to the streets demanding the deposition of João Goulart. Such popular strata had no effective participation in the overthrow of the government, because the military planned a coup d'état to take place in the first week of april but Minas Gerais-icon.png Minas Geraisball anticipated the coup a week and gone alone with only a few tanks to take power, what could've result in a bath of blood but some say predicted the government self coup that was planned a week after. The government of President João Goulart was deposed and the military regime began a few days later after the parliamentary election of Castello Branco as president.

    The military occupied the streets on March 31, 1964. And on April 2 congress deposed João Goulart. After the coupe d'état, the president decided to take refuge in Uruguay-icon.png Uruguayball and the next day the military took over the government of the country.

    The Dictator Crossed-icon.png dictatorship issued many authoritarian institutional acts that strengthened its power, like extending the term of Castelo Branco and closing the parliament, preventing civilian vice president Pedro Aleixo from assuming after the death of Costa Silva (successor of Castelo Branco). The dictatorship also sided with USA-icon.png USAball during the Cold War.

    Many Communism-icon.png communists were unsatisfied with the new regime and started numerous guerillas. It was only with the "election" of the last two military presidents, who were also reformists, that Republic-icon.png democracy began to return gradually to Brazil-icon.png Brazilball. Many of these Communism-icon.png communists wanted to overthrow the Military-icon.png military dictatorship to... implement a Communism-icon.png communist dictatorship. However, oppression was not limited to those guerrilla rebels, but also reached institutional opponents, artists, journalists and other members of civil society in addition to the Military-icon.png military and police themselves who demonstrate that they are not in line with the regime (like Marshal Lott and Lieutenant-Brigadier Rui Moreira Lima) and relatives of political prisoners.

    Brazil-icon.png Brazilballs could no longer Republic-icon.png vote for president, governor of statesballs or mayors of Brazilian stateballs capitals cityballs, as well they also have the risk of being arrested and tortured without the right to a court (without right to be heard) for simple rumors about the possibility of being Communism-icon.png communist (even though in reality being a Social Democracy-icon.png social democrat or a Liberalism-icon.png liberal), because for the paranoid Military-icon.png military, anyone who was against the regime was a Communism-icon.png Communist (whether true or not)

    Despite its brutality, like other Dictator Crossed-icon.png authoritarian regimes, due to an economic boom, known as an "economic miracle", the regime reached a peak in popularity in the early 1970s, although many think that, in the long term, this caused more harm than good to Brazil-icon.png Brazilball.

    Presidency of Geisel

    Each president had their own style to govern but the most excentric one was from the fourth, Geisel, because it was a bit oriented by former dictator Getúlio Vargas ideals. Before taking office as president it worked as the secretary over the Mining and Energy ministry under Emílio Médici, during this when the chance to sell state-run Petrobras fell on its lap, a little before the oil crisis in 1974, it strongly rejected it. This guy became the next president because jobs were pouring in from Médici’s term and it was seen as a Republic-icon.png democratic reformist, congress thought it would give a good candidate against the other candidate from civil party PMDB-icon.png MDB that voted in favour of the Military-icon.png military in 1964 and elected again the military guy but by a fair majority (400 votes against 76 its adversary).

    The end of the Military-icon.png military government culminated with the hyperinflation, and great part of the pharaonic works paralyzed by the interior of Brazil-icon.png Brazil. Because of international economic crises since 1973 (oil crisis), strong Brazilian economic growth was halted, and social pressure increased. Demands of the middle class for greater liberties, for the end of censorship, for amnesty and for control of inflation, were destabilizing the Brazil-icon.png Brazilian government until the end of the decade. The government then struck a slow transmission to Democracy-icon.png democracy. Initiated by President Geisel in 1976, some freedoms were returned to the Brazil-icon.png Brazilian people, but slowly.

    Presidency of Figueiredo

    Army general João Figueiredo was elected by the Brazilian Electoral College in 1979, with the promise of returning Democracy-icon.png democracy to Brazil-icon.png Brazil. In its government, general and unrestricted amnesty to all political exiles was secured, and some political and economic reforms were practiced, such as the return of direct elections to state governors and multiparty parties. However, inflation increased.

    Social pressures led by the PMDB-icon.png PMDB (opposition party to the military regime) culminated in 1984, with the Diretas Já movement, a series of popular demonstrations that called for direct elections for president of the Republic-icon.png republic and an end to Military-icon.png military interference in the Brazil-icon.png Brazilian government.

    The end of the Military-icon.png military dictatorship in Brazil-icon.png Brazilball happened in 1985, stimulated by some movements and inflamed by the great displeasure of the population by the high inflation and recession that the country faced.

    This period divide the opnions and have a lot of controversies, because some people love it, another hated it.

    Modern Days (1985 - present)

    Tancredo Neves was the first civilian to get elected in 24 years. He did not take office because it died due to health problems. That is why the vice-president, José Sarney, took office and ruled the country until 1990. On October 5, 1988, a new and current Federal Constitution after the redemocratization was promulgated

    Collor de Mello and Franco Presidencies

    The first direct Republic-icon.png presidential election after 29 years was held on October 15, 1989 (first round) and November 15, 1989 (second round). The Liberal Fernando Collor de Mello from the PRN won the run-off election with 53% of the vote for a five-year term.

    Although it had massive support amongst the voters, the administration had a small parliamentary base as Collor's recently founded party had few deputies and no senators and faced fierce opposition from parties that had splintered from the Democratic Alliance: the PMDB-icon.png Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB), Liberals (PFL), and PSDB-icon.png Social Democrats (Brazilian Social Democracy Party, PSDB).

    Presidency of Fernando Henrique Cardoso

    PSDB-icon.png PSDB candidate and former Finance Minister, Fernando Henrique Cardoso started its first term on January 1, 1995 and was reelected in 1998 defeating PT-icon.png PT candidate, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (twice). President Cardoso sought to establish the basis for long-term stability and growth and to reduce Brazil-icon.png Brazil's extreme socioeconomic imbalances. His proposals to Congress included constitutional amendments to open the Brazil-icon.png Brazilian economy to greater foreign investment and to implement sweeping reforms – including social security, government administration, and taxation – to reduce excessive public sector spending and improve government efficiency.

    Presidency of Lula da Silva-icon.png Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva

    After losing the presidency four times, in 2002, São Paulo-icon.png São Pauloball deputy Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (he was born in Pernambucoball, electoral based in São Pauloball) of the PT-icon.png Workers' Party (PT... a Social Democratic party) won the presidency with more than 60% of the national vote. In the first months of its term, inflation rose perilously, reflecting the markets' uncertainty about the government's monetary policy. However, the markets' confidence in the government was regained as Lula chose to maintain its predecessor's policies, meaning the continuation of Central Bank's task of keeping inflation down. Since then, the country has undergone considerable economic growth and employment expansion. On the other hand, Lula's mainstream economic policies disappointed its most radical leftist allies, which led to a schism in the PT-icon.png PT (Workers' Party) that resulted in the creation of PSOL. The introduction of social programs such as Bolsa Família and Fome Zero were hallmarks of its time in office. As President, Lula played a prominent role in international matters including activities related to the nuclear program of Iran-icon.png Iranball and global warming, being described as "a man with audacious ambitions to alter the balance of power among nations" After its presidency, Lula was arrested on 7 April 2018 and sentenced to 12 years in prison, having been charged with money laundering and passive corruption. Lula is the fifth President of Brazil-icon.png Brazilball who has ever gone to jail and the first to be arrested for corruption.

    Presidency of Dilma Rousseff-icon.png Dilma Rousseff and the Impeachment

    On October 31, 2010, PT-icon.png Workers' Party candidate and Lula's Chief of Staff, Dilma Rousseff, elected as President of Brazilball. She was the first woman to hold the Brazilian presidency and the first diectly elected female president of Brazilball and the first one to be re-elected. Brazilball became the sixth Latin American countryball to have a female leader and the third South American countryball to have a female leader. With its term beginning in the January 1, 2011. In its victory speech, Rousseff, who had also been a key member of Lula's administration, made clear that its mission during its term would be to continue its predecessor's policies to mitigate poverty and ensure continued economic growth.

    On June 2011, Rousseff announced a program called "Brasilbola Sem Miséria" (Brazilball Without Poverty), with the ambitious goal of drastically reducing absolute poverty in Brazilball by the end of its term. Poverty afflicted 16 million people, a little less than a tenth of the population. The program involved broadening the Bolsa Família social welfare program and creating new job opportunities and establishing professional certification programs. In 2012, another program labeled "Brasilbola Carinhoso" (Tenderful Brazilball) was launched with the objective of providing extra care to all children in Brazilball who lived below the poverty threshold.

    In 2014, Rousseff won a second term by a narrow margin against Aécio Neves of PSDB-icon.png PSDB, but failed to prevent its popularity from falling. In June 2015, its approval dropped to less than 10%, after another wave of protests, this time organized by opponents who wanted its out of power, amid revelations that numerous politicians, including some from its party, were being investigated for accepting bribes from the state-owned energy company Petrobras from 2003 to 2010, while it was on the company's board of directors.

    On 12 May 2016, the Senate of Brazil suspended Rousseff's powers and duties for up to six months or until the Senate decided whether to remove its from office or to acquit her. Vice-President Michel Temer of PMDB-icon.png Brazilian Democratic Movement Party, assumed its powers and duties as Acting President of Brazil during its suspension. On 31 August 2016, the Senate voted 61–20 to impeach, finding her guilty of breaking budgetary laws and removing its from office.

    Presidency of Michel Temer

    After a process of impeachment opened against Rousseff in late 2015 culminated with its temporarily removed from power in May 12, 2016 with Vice-President Michel Temer (from PMDB ... a Centrist party) assuming temporarily until the final trial was concluded in August 31, 2016, when Rousseff was officially impeached and Temer was sworn President until the end of the term. During the Impeachment process, Brazil hosted the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro-icon.pngRio de Janeiroball.

In March, it created alongside another south american balls, the PROSUL, a intergovernamental organization replacing the UNASUL. On February 2020, Brazilball's crime rate has hit a big low since 12 years thanks to Bolsonaro's tough stance on crime.
