The Portuguese writing is same in the whole country but accent varies.

São Paulo state has 645 municipalities and a population of approximately 40 million inhabitants. According to IBGE, Brazil’s main government research institute, the population in the city of São Paulo is about 11 million inhabitants.
If we take into account the metropolitan area, which includes 38 smaller cities around the capital, the population is almost 19,000,000 inhabitants.
In Brazil, 81.3% of the population lives in urban areas even though the amazon rainforest covers up to 57% of the total area of Southern hemisphere’s largest country.
This urban concentration helps to explain why it is more expensive to rent an office in São Paulo than in New York City.
In 2013, São Paulo ranked 6th in Forbes List of the Top 10 Billionaire cities. There are 26 billionaires (up from 19 last year) with primary residences in São Paulo. Together, their total net worth is superior to $120 billion. The average billionaire living is São Paulo is worth $4.65 billion.
