European Latin language spoken officially for about 200 millions people in eight countries worldwide, mainly in South America, Africa and Europe. It's also unofficially spoken in parts of India, Southern Asia and Africa.

Hot people that finish every sentence with "CARALHO" "FODA-SE" "FOI O EDER QUE OS FODEU" which means "i appreciate it" "thank you" and the last one "you´re welcome". They can cook better than your mama and grandma together. They're more interested in soccer than in something (kinda) important like politics, if you ask an old man "who's the president?" he'll say the president of his soccer team. They won the euro and the eurovision, and soon they'll conquer the world.
