Geography

Rondonia


It is located in the northern region, with Amazonas to the north, Mato Grosso to the east, Bolivia to the south and west and Acre to the west.

In 1956, with an economy based on the exploitation of rubber and Brazil nuts, its territory was renamed the Federal Territory of Rondônia, in honor of the military and countryman Marechal Rondon. With the growth of its economy and its population, the Territory became a state since 1981.

Rondônia's economy is based on agriculture and the extraction of wood, ores and rubber. The state's climate is equatorial.
