Montevideo is Uruguay's capital, chief port, and by far its largest city. It is therefore considered a primate city. 1.4 million, approximately 1/3 of which is of Italian descent, a large percentage of the remainder is of European origin, nearly entirely from Spain and Portugal — totalling some 88% of the demographic. Montevideo's population makes up roughly 44% of the entire country of Uruguay, and the surrounding province of Canelones, essentially Montevideo's suburbs and direct rural area, makes up another 12%.
