Argentina

Pronunciation: /ˌärjənˈtēnə/
A republic that occupies much of the southern part of South America; population 40,913,600 (est. 2009); capital, Buenos Aires; official language, Spanish.

Colonized by the Spanish in the 16th century, Argentina declared its independence in 1816. It emerged as a democratic republic in the mid 19th century, but has periodically fallen under military rule. In 1982, Argentina’s claim to the Falkland Islands led to an unsuccessful war with Britain.
