    The girls are hot, everyone is good at and loves football. People dance to samba, Rio carnival and Copacabana beach are great, but there's a big crime problem.

    The rapidly developing nations which include Brazil, Russia, India and China.
    Ahh yeah! Hopefully soon it won't be a third world country!

    Favelados with little chance of developing into a non resource-based economy. Also liveleak doesn't paint a very pretty picture of Brazil.

    Not what OP was asking for.
    That's how I view Brazil as a country, developing. So I think my answer directly answers this part of OPs question:

    I'm wondering what people think about Brazilian people and even the country itself.

    I'm trying to be positive, but this excitement is really exaggerated. Yes, people are lovely, the landscape is unique, samba/bossa nova are amazing, the genetic heritage is spectacular, but Brazil is a third world, violent, unequal, racist and corrupt country. This kind of thread only reinforces for the outsiders an image of a "sexy and easy-going country", hiding the daily struggle of the Brazilian people.

    Most (all) South American countries are corrupt. What's your point?

    Nope, that's incorrect. Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, for instance, manage to maintain a good level of governance. And with all do respect to other South American countries, none of them comes close to Brazil in terms of corruption.

    Brazil is richer than the UK, and almost 35% of that income is stolen from the public funds.

    My point is, Brazil and the mainstream media are really competent in transmiting an image of a happy and fantastic country with minor problems, which is a lie. Brazil's corruption is a problem that affects others countries as well. So it is important to break this stereotype sometimes... people always think of Brazil as football-beaches-women-sex. Brazil is not a sex-tourism-tropical-football land, and their people don't want to be seen as such.
