Agriculture in Uruguay

Uruguay, officially the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, is a country located in southeastern South America. It borders Argentina to its west and Brazil to its north, making it one of only two countries (the other being Paraguay) that lie entirely within the Southern Cone. Uruguay was colonized by the Spanish Empire in the 16th century, and until 1811 it was a part of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata. Montevideo, Uruguay's capital and largest city, was founded as a military stronghold by the Spanish in the early 18th century. Uruguay won its independence between 1811 and 1828 following a four-way struggle between Spain, Portugal, Argentina, and Brazil. It remained subject to foreign influence and intervention throughout the 19th century, with the military playing a recurring role in domestic politics until the late 20th century. A series of economic crises put an end to a democratic period that had begun in the early 20th century, culminating in a 1973 coup that established a civic-military dictatorship. The military government persecuted leftists, socialists, and trade unionists, resulting in several deaths and numerous instances of torture by the security forces. Uruguay is today a democratic constitutional republic with a president who serves as both head of state and head of government. Uruguay is a founding member of Mercosur, an original member of the United Nations, and a member of the Organization of American States. It is one of the few countries in Latin America with high human development and an economy based on service industries and tourism. Uruguay is ranked first in Latin America in democracy, peace, lack of corruption, and e-government transparency, and is first in South America when it comes to press freedom, size of the middle class, prosperity, and equality. On a per-capita basis, Uruguay contributes more troops to United Nations peacekeeping missions than any other country. It ranks second in the region on economic freedom, income equality, per capita income, and inflows of FDI. Uruguay is the third-best country on the continent in terms of HDI, GDP growth, innovation, and infrastructure. It is regarded as a high-income country by the UN. Uruguay was one of the last countries in the Americas to be colonized by Europeans, coming under Spanish rule only in the 16th century. Uruguay became a zone of contention between Spain and Portugal in the 18th century. The Portuguese were the first to establish themselves in the area, but they were soon driven out by the Spanish. Spain's colonization of Uruguay was tenuous; it lasted only from 1726 to 1762, when a Spanish expeditionary force conquered Montevideo and expelled the Portuguese. After several decades of conflict between Spain and Portugal, Buenos Aires and Montevideo, Uruguay finally became a Spanish colony in 1777. Spain's hold on Uruguay was tenuous at best; it did not establish a firm foothold until 1796 when an expeditionary force from Buenos Aires conquered Montevideo. The Spanish colony of Uruguay lasted for only fifteen years, from 1777 to 1792, when it was annexed by Portugal. Spain had originally intended to make Uruguay a buffer state between Buenos Aires and Portugal's colony of Brazil, but the Portuguese soon moved in and took control of the area. After a series of wars and treaties, Spain finally ceded Uruguay to Portugal in 1815. Uruguay then became a battleground between Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay for the next several decades. In 1828, Uruguay finally won its independence from Portugal, and it became a separate country. Uruguay has been a democracy for most of its history. However, the military has played a significant role in Uruguayan politics at various times in the country's history. The first major period of military rule occurred from 1903 to 1933, when the White Party ruled Uruguay. The military again took control of the government in 1973, and a period of dictatorship lasted until 1985. Since then, democracy has been restored, and the military has returned to its role as a defender of the country. Uruguay is a country located in the southeastern part of South America.
