Independent since 1825, Uruguay is a unitary republic. On the basis of the Constitution, promulgated in 1967 and amended in 1989 and 1997, executive power is entrusted to the President of the Republic, elected by universal suffrage for a five-year term and supported by the Council of Ministers, who is nominated by the President with the approval of Parliament. Legislative power is exercised by the bicameral General Assembly, elected for 4 years by universal and direct suffrage. The judicial system is based on Spanish law and incorporates international enactments. Justice is administered by the Supreme Court, followed by Courts of Appeal and minor courts. The defense of the state is entrusted to the three traditional weapons: army, navy and air force; military service is mandatory and is carried out from 18 years of age, but voluntary conscription is also envisaged. The organization of the education system has ancient origins: the first educational institutions were founded by religious orders in the 18th century, while the public school was created with the proclamation of independence and the establishment of the Republic. Education, from primary to university, is free. The compulsory schooling concerns children aged 6 to 14. Primary school starts at age 6 and lasts for 6 years. The secondary one begins at 12 years and ends after two cycles of 3 years each. The Universidad del Trabajo is an autonomous body created in 1942 for technical-professional education. Higher education is given in the Universidad de la República (Montevideo, 1849). According to COUNTRYAAH, Uruguay is a nation in South America, the capital city of which is Montevideo. The latest population of Uruguay is 3,473,741.

CLIMATE
The climate is temperate, with strong oceanic influences. The average rainfall is 1000-1200 mm per year, with a gradual increase from S to N; the wettest periods fall in the months of March and April and September, when the influence of the South Atlantic anticyclone is more sensitive; seasonal differences are however very limited. Temperatures are mild: in Montevideo they oscillate between 12.5 ºC in July (ie during the austral winter) and 22.6 ºC in January; along the Atlantic coast the annual temperature variations are attenuated by the influences of the last terminations of the hot current of Brazil, which makes Uruguayan seaside resorts particularly hospitable.
