The only piece of diversity that Brazil is missing is religious diversity. It is a 99% Christian/Catholic country. Even those who are agnostic/athiest in Brazil have roots in Christianity.

This is probably a good thing though. When people of different religions live amongst eachother they tend to fight.

On that list (Which is quite old i might add) Brazil is number 51, Brazil has less foreign born residents than New Zealand, which has less than 3% of Brazils populaton.

99% Christian, but not 99% Catholic. Evangelical Protestants and even Mormons have made huge inroads into Brazil over the past two decades or so.

United Arab Emerates worth mentioning too as it probably has the worlds highest percent of foreign born people living there
Emirati 19%, other Arab and Iranian 23%, South Asian 50%, other expatriates (includes Westerners and East Asians) 8% (1982)

note: less than 20% are UAE citizens (1982)

It must be nice to be that naive.

I think Brazil would fall into this category instead:

Countries that are not the most diverse countries in the world but still have some diversity and probably plenty of diversity:

Germany
Brazil
Japan
China
Thailand
Denmark
Sweden
Norway
Netherlands
South Korea
Switzerland
Japan diverse? South Korea? would hardly think so.

Australia I believe has the second highest number of folk born outside its borders after Israel, but like that country hardly in the top for diversity.
It is coming though with India for the first time being the nation sending the most immigrants there. China,UK, New Zealand follow up.
Until rather recently there were few black faces visible on the streets, Indians are very recent additions in visibility. Chinese and Vietnamese really only visible non white races until quite recently.
