Despite its small place, it's still a hub for TheBeautifulGame. The Uruguayan national team won two straight UsefulNotes/OlympicGames football tournaments in the 20's (leading to the nickname 'Celeste Olimpica', the former part referring to the sky blue uniforms), plus two of the earliest editions of TheWorldCup (the inaugural edition in 1930, which they hosted; and 1950, upsetting Brazil at home in what became a ShockingDefeatLegacy for the neighbors) and are the biggest winners of the continental Copa América, with 15 titles.

On July 31 2013, Uruguay become the first nation in the world to legalize the sale, cultivation, and distribution of cannabis. As then-President Jose Mujica said, "Uruguay wants to make a 'contribution to humanity' by legalising marijuana but will backtrack if the 'experiment' goes awry." In order to keep the country from becoming an [[FreestateAmsterdam Amsterdam]] in the southern hemisphere, Uruguay requires users 18 and older to be registered in a national database, and has prohibited both the sale of marijuana to foreigners and the transport of marijuana over international borders.
