Roraimaball is the northernmost and least populated state of Brazilball, located in the Amazon region. It borders the states of Amazonasball and Paráball, as well as the nations of Venezuelaball and Guyanaball.
Roraimaball born as a 3ball, adopted by Kingdom of Portugalball, Brazilian Empireball and Brazilball. Since the beginnings of the 16th century, the region now considered the State of Roraimaball was disputed territory, because of its rich mineral reserves. It was sought by the Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and English until the beginning of the last century. But in 1943, together with a section from the state of Amazonasball, the Federal Government created the territory of Rio Brancoball, which became Roraimaball in 1962. In 1988, Roraimaball became a state by decision of the National Congress. The name of the state was taken from Mount Roraima, whose name comes from the Pemon words “roroi” (“cyan”) and “ma” (“large”). One of the main archaeological site is the Pedra Pintada, Roraima, with ancient rock art and engravings.
