What country is country code ‘0055’?

Question: What country is country code ‘0055’? I am attempting to dial phone number ‘0055-21-3545-xxxx’.

Answer: Brazil.

‘0055’ is a mislabeled country code. ’00’ is the international exit code for many of Brazil’s neighbours such as Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela, and Suriname. It is also used in many European and Asian countries.

’55’ is the country code for Brazil. ’21-3545-xxxx’ appears to be a Brazilian phone number located within Rio de Janeiro.
