It lies northeast of the northern region and is bordered by French Guiana to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Pará to the south and west and Suriname to the northwest. It is the best preserved Brazilian state, keeping almost all of the Amazon rainforest intact, which covers 90% of its territory. The state has an urban population of 89%, behind only São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and the Federal District.
Amapá's economy has little participation in national GDP and is primarily focused on Brazil nut extraction, timber and manganese mining. The state is one of the largest buyers of Pará products, a state to which it is closely linked. Macapá and Amapá consume food and other products mainly from the Marajó region (Pará).
