Brasília, capital of Brazil

There is not a State called Brasilia. According to the Constitution, Brazil is a Federation made up by States, municipalities and the Federal District; Brasilia is just one of the administrative sub-divisions of the Federal District. Most Brazilians, however, ignore the existance of a Federal District, and just call it Brasilia.
