If you want South America, Brazil is a good choice, first, it has a reasonable economy (once compared to its neighbours) and you are obviosuly the most powerful nation in South America (especially with the imminent break up of Gran Colombia), meaning no one will really mess up with you. Your only troubles would be internal Civil strife and revolts.
