About Argentina

Argentina is the second largest country in South America and eighth in the world by land area and the largest among Spanish-speaking nations. It lies between the Atlantic Ocean and the Andes mountains. Argentina shares borders with Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay and Chile.

Argentine culture has significant European influences. Buenos Aires, considered by many its cultural capital, is often said to be the most European city in South America, as a result both of the prevalence of people of European descent and of conscious imitation of European styles in architecture. The other big influence is the gauchos and their traditional country lifestyle of self-reliance. Finally, indigenous American traditions (like yerba mate infusions) have been absorbed into the general cultural milieu.

As a rule, the climate is predominantly temperate with extremes ranging from subtropical in the north to subpolar in the far south. The north of the country is characterized by very hot, humid summers with mild drier winters, and is subject to periodic droughts. Central Argentina has hot summers with thunderstorms and cool winters.

Argentina, as with other areas of new settlement such as Canada, Australia and the United States is considered a country of immigrants.

Most Argentines are descended from colonial-era settlers and of the 19th and 20th century immigrants from Europe and around 86% of Argentina’s population self-identify as of European descent. The majority of these European immigrants came from Italy and Spain. Up to 25 million Argentines have some degree of Italian descent, around 60% of the total population. An estimated 8% of the population is mestizo. A further 4% of Argentines were of Arab or East Asian heritage.

Argentina’s population is highly urbanized with the country’s ten largest metro areas being home to half the total population, and fewer than one in ten living in rural areas. About 3 million people live in the autonomous city of Buenos Aires and the Greater Buenos Aires metro area totals 12.8 million (2008), making it one of the largest conurbations in the world.

Argentina has abundant natural resources, a well-educated population, an export-oriented agricultural sector and a relatively diversified industrial base.

Argentina’s political framework is a federal presidential representative democratic republic, in which the President of The Argentine Nation is both head of state and head of government, complemented by a pluriform multi-party system.

Argentines are predominantly Roman Catholic. Historically, around 90% have indentified themselves as Roman Catholic according to different surveys.

The official language of Argentina is Spanish, usually called castellano (Castilian) by Argentines. Argentines are the largest Spanish-speaking society that universally employs what is known as voseo (the use of the pronoun vos instead of tú (you), which occasions the use of alternate verb forms as well).
