Brazil's achievements speak for themselves. The most powerful country in Latin America, a multicultural society like the US, and the 7th largest economy in the world and still rising. Pretty much the only reason Brazil hasn't received as much attention until now is that it has been overshadowed by the US (which, incidentally, is also a young country just like Brazil). If you don't think any of these are important then yes, that is pretty narrow-minded. All in all I prefer the BNW forum, as people there are far more progressive in their ideas of civilization. Heh. "Pedro's Party People" is a light-hearted joke that, incidentally, may have arisen from a post here on Civfanatics. I believe it stemmed from a phrase someone said after learning of Brazil's UA. Just goes to show that Firaxis does read Civfanatics. Anyway, the many Brazilians here in Civfanatics don't seem to be offended by it. If they're not offended, I won't be either.
