Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin America region. Its capital city is Brasília.


Magical community

Brazil was apparently home to a wizarding community comparable to that of the United Kingdom. The municipalities of Caxambu, Manaus and Teresina may have significant magical populations, as the Daily Prophet saw fit to include forecasts for them in its international weather section.[1]

Magical government

The magical community of Brazil is governed by the Brazilian Ministry of Magic.[2]

Magical education

There is a Brazilian wizarding school[3] for young witches and wizards.

Magical games and sports

The Brazilian National Quidditch team has won the Quidditch World Cup five times[4] since the 20th century, when it managed to reach the quarter-finals.[5] It was a finalist in the 1982 Quidditch World Cup and the runner-up of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup.

Quodpot, a variant of Quidditch, is immensely popular in North and South America, which might include Brazilian wizarding community.

Magical creatures

Magical history

  • In 1991, Harry Potter talked to a snake that was a boa constrictor of Brazilian descent. When Harry freed the snake, it left saying: "Brazil, here I come ... Thanksss, amigo."[6]
  • In 1993, the yearly International Warlock Convention was held in Brazil. It was hosted by the Brazilian Ministry of Magic, which stated that it was "proud" to host the event.[2]
  • In 1994, Ron Weasley said that his brother Bill had a pen-friend who attended a wizarding school in Brazil. When his pen-friend wanted him to go on exchange trip, Bill had to decline because his parents could not afford it. Unfortunately, his pen-friend got offended and sent Bill a cursed hat that made his ears shrivel up.[3]
  • The Caxambu Style Borborygmus Potion was developed in Caxambu, Brazil.
