Bolivia, officially known as the Plurinational State of Bolivia (Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia), is located in western-central South America. It is bordered to the north and east by Brazil, to the southeast by Paraguay, to the south by Argentina, to the southwest by Chile, and to the northwest by Peru. It has no ocean access. One-third of the country is the Andean mountain range.

The largest city and principal economic and financial center is Santa Cruz de la Sierra, located on the Llanos Orientales (Tropical lowlands) a mostly flat region in the East of Bolivia. The nation and its smaller neighbor Paraguay are the only landlocked countries in the Americas. Its main economic activities include agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining, and manufacturing goods such as textiles, clothing, refined metals, and refined petroleum. The country is very wealthy in minerals, especially tin.
