The traditional and historical borders form the basis of each Brazil State, evolving through centuries. There is of course quite a couple of Brazil State, which has haphazard, poorly defined boundaries. In this regard, mention may be made about the 'Federal District', which is not a full-fledged state, yet shares some typical state features.
The history of the proper emergence of Brazil State dates back to the Second World War in 1943. With Brazil's participation in the Great War, seven tactical regions of Amapa, Rio Branco, Acre, Guapore, Iguacu, Fernando de Noronha archipelago and Ponta Pora got isolated from the Brazilian borders and came under the direct administration of the Vargas Regime. In the post-War situation, Brazil regained the first four territories in the form of matured states.
