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. Teresina may be a city within it that contains a number of wizarding residents, as the Daily Prophet considered its weather of note.
