Southeastern South America
Brazil is the largest country in South America (and also the only one with a primary language of Portuguese, rather than Spanish). Brazil is home to much of the Amazon rainforest. Its capital is Brasília. Both Manaus and Teresina may be cities of note within it that contain a number of wizarding residents, as the Daily Prophet considered their weather of note in its International section.
