Brasília (pronounced [bɾaˈziʎɐ] nationwide, in both colloquial and educated speech) is the federal capital of Brazil and the seat of government of the Federal District. The name is commonly spelled Brasilia in English. The city is located in the Federal District, and is in the Central-West region of the country, along a plateau known as Planalto Central as its mentioned in the map of the Capital of Brazil. It has a population of about 2,562,963 (3,716,996 in the metropolitan area) as of the 2008 IBGE estimate, making it the fourth largest city in Brazil. However, as a metropolitan area, it ranks lower at sixth. It is listed as a World Heritage Site UNESCO.
As the national capital, Brasília is the seat of all three branches of the Brazilian government. The city also hosts the headquarters of many Brazilian companies as its shown in the map of the Capital of Brazil. Planning policies such as the location of residential buildings around expansive urban areas, as well as building the city around large avenues and dividing it into sectors, have sparked a debate and reflection on life in big cities in the 20th century. The city's design divides it into numbered blocks as well as sectors for specified activities, such as the Hotel Sector, the Banking Sector or the Embassy Sector. Brasília hosts 124 foreign embassies.
In reality, Brazil has only had three official capitals (see the map of the Capital of Brazil), each one relating to a distinct phase in its social and cultural history. Salvador de Bahia was the early Portuguese colonial capital. Rio de Janeiro became the capital of colonial Brazil during its most dynamic development in the 19th century, and it remained capital throughout its serving as seat of the Portuguese empire, as capital of the Brazilian empire, and as capital of the Republic of Brazil, until the mid-twentieth century. In 1960, the modernist capital of Brasília, serving what is now a Latin American superpower, is inaugurated, although the transition from Rio to Brasília is not without problems.
