Argentina

'''Argentina''' ) is a federal republic located in southeastern South America. Sharing the Southern Cone with its smaller neighbour Chile, it is bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north; Brazil to the northeast; Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east; Chile to the west and the Drake Passage to the south.

With a mainland area of Argentina is the eighth-largest country (List of countries and outlying territories by total area) in the world, the second largest in Latin America, and the largest Spanish-speaking (Hispanophone) one. Argentina claims sovereignty over part of Antarctica (Argentine Antarctica), the Falkland Islands (Falkland Islands sovereignty dispute) ( ), South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands sovereignty dispute).

A historical and current middle power regional power, Argentina is one of the G-15 (Group of 15) and G-20 major economies and Latin America's third-largest. It is also a founding member of the United Nations, WBG (World Bank Group), WTO (World Trade Organization), Mercosur, UNASUR (Union of South American Nations), CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) and OEI (Organization of Ibero-American States). Because of its stability, market size and increasing share of the high-tech sector, Argentina is classed by investors as a middle emerging economy (emerging economy) with a "very high" (List of countries by Human Development Index#Americas) rating on the Human Development Index.

From then on—while massive European immigration waves (Immigration in Argentina) radically reshaped its cultural and demographic outlook—Argentina enjoyed an historically almost-unparalleled increase in prosperity: by the early 20th century it already ranked as the seventh wealthiest in the world.
