Info: Santa Catarina was one of the few states in Brazil that actually were colonized by a system of settlement colonization where immigrant settler's come mainly from modern Germany, Austria, Italy, Russia, Portugal, Spain, France and Scandinavia. The heritage of the German and Italian immigrants can be seen in the architecture and the customs of the population of the state.

Quality of life is very high by Brazilian and Latin American standards. It is the Brazilian state with the highest levels of income, education and public health, and one of the lowest rates of illiteracy. Santa Catarina boasts Brazil's highest average life expectancy and lowest homicide rate in addition to lower levels of corruption. The cities of the state are also considered the most "livable" in Brazil, appearing as the most "clean, safe and organized" of the country. In recent decades, Santa Catarina has been dubbed "the Brazil that worked".
