Describe the geography of Southern South America and how this geography influences economic activity?

My Answer:

Southern South America consists of 3 nations, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. The Rio de la Plata is great river system that consists of 4 rivers that are also the boundaries of the 3 nations; the Uruguay, the Pilcomayo, the Paraguay and the Paraná,
Argentina is the richest nation in South America, its people have European ancestors. Majority of the people live in the urban areas, which has many factories. While Argentina is wealthy in many aspects, there are still many poor people who come here in hopes of a better life.
Paraguay is landlocked but the Rio de la Plata forms a route to the sea. Majority of the Paraguayans are mestizos and live in the highlands and away from the Chaco (swamps). A huge part of Paraguay’s economy is agriculture, they grow grains and herd livestock.
Uruguayans are mostly of European descent. Uruguay is mostly grassland, its main economy is raising livestock and processing meat. Uruguay hardly produces any products and they have import lots of their everyday items.

Does that sound ok?
