This landlocked country was named after the famous independence fighter Simón Bolívar. As one of the poorest countries in Latin America and one of the world's highest income inequalities, improving one’s social status is extremely difficult. The Bolivian government established the country’s official languages (37 total); some are considered extinct! Although the colors on their flag represent mineral resources (yellow) and fertile lands (green), they remain primarily underdeveloped due to their inefficient policies. This country has some stunning locations, such as Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America and the highest lake in the world navigable by large vessels. Also, the Salar de Uyuni is the world’s most enormous salt flat, and the world’s highest forest is in Sajama National Park.
