Portuguese is an Iberian Romance Language. It is the fourth or the fifth most spoken language in the world, and is in permanent expansion, due to the population booms in countries such as Brazil and Mozambique, together with the expansion of emmigrants. In the NationStates world, the role of the language is a bit ambiguous, since Portuguese-speaking players tend to concentrate themselves in regions rather closed to the rest of the world.

Most nations where Portuguese is an official or recognized language are roleplayed by Portuguese-speaking players, mostly Portuguese (although Brazillians are gaining importance).

Portuguese in the NationStates World

There are several Portuguese-speaking regions in NationStates. The most relevant cases are Portugal and Portugalia. Europe is also home to a large and strong Portuguese-speaking community.

Portuguese is the second or the third most spoken language in Europe, fighting with German and Dutch those positions.

Although there are large Portuguese roleplaying communities and this is an important language in Europe, its importance in the rest of the NS world is extremly limited, if not non-existant.

Portugal contains about 100 nations and Portugalia about 40. Pratically all of them are roleplayed by Portuguese native-speakers. Portuguese speaking nations outside of Portugal or Portugalia reside mainly in Europe. Here are some examples:
