Brazil officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin America region. Its capital is Brasília.[1]

Brazil was apparently home to a wizarding community comparable to that of the United Kingdom. The country had its own Ministry of Magic, wizarding school, and national Quidditch team.

The municipalities of Manaus and Teresina may have had significant magical populations, as the Daily Prophet saw fit to include forecasts for both in its international weather section.[3]

The yearly International Warlock Convention was held in Brazil in 1993. It was hosted by the Brazilian Ministry of Magic, which stated that it was "proud" to host the event.[4]

Ron Weasley says 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.[2]

Magical games and sportsEdit

The Brazilian National Quidditch team have reached the quarter-finals of the Quidditch World Cup in the last century.[5]
