Argentina officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America. Argentina is the eighth-largest country in the world, the second-largest in Latin America, and the largest Spanish-speaking one. The country is known for tango, steak and football. Argentina is a massive South American nation with terrain encompassing Andes Mountains, glacial lakes and Pampas grassland, the traditional grazing ground of its famed beef cattle.
Geographically, with a mainland surface area of 2,780,400 km2 (1,073,518 sq mi), Argentina is located in southern South America, sharing land borders with Chile across the Andes to the west; Bolivia and Paraguay to the north; Brazil to the northeast, Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east; and the Drake Passage to the south; for an overall land border length of 9,376 km (5,826 mi). Its coastal border over the Río de la Plata and South Atlantic Ocean is 5,117 km (3,180 mi) long.
Argentina has the second largest economy in South America, the third-largest in Latin America and is a member of the G-15 and G-20 major economies. Because of its stability, market size and growing high-tech sector, Argentina is classified as a high-income economy. It has a "very high" rating on the Human Development Index and a relatively high GDP per capita, with a considerable internal market size and a growing share of the high-tech sector. High inflation-a weakness of the Argentine economy for decades-has become a trouble once again, with rates in 2013 between the official 10.2% and the privately estimated 25%, causing heated public debate over manipulated statistics.
