It may not be very difficult for you to guess why I googled maps of Brazil today. This one is from geology.com
Perhaps it is more amazing that the inhabitants of this huge country have discovered Denmark on the map. But the following dialogue about a spoilt woman goes to prove it:
"If she spends more than a week living on the fazenda she gets claustrophobic."
"Claustrophobic? How big is this place?"
"About half the size of Denmark."
L. Gage, Blood of the Wicked, p 195.
And before you ask, Denmark is c 43,ooo square km, and Brazil is 8,547,400.
