Which said: North America is a continent in the Earth's Western hemisphere. The continent is made up of Canada, the United States of America, and Mexico. Canada is home to three of the most accomplished Quidditch teams in the modern day: the Haileybury Hammers, the Moose Jaw Meteorites, and the Stonewall Stormers. The Fitchburg Finches have won the U.S. Quidditch cup seven times
Find it more accurate. Probably needs a few additions, such as Sasquach etc,
Most recent edit seems to assume that either the Americans won the war of 1812 or that Paul Gross's The Trojan Horse was a documentary and that Canada is now part of the United States. Canon says that Native Americans were on the land first and then the Europeans came - the wizards coming to North American with the no-maj. So far JKR is treating No-Maj history as peripheral to wizarding history - so one should assume, unless/until JKR indicates otherwise, that no-maj history is not different than how it happened in real life. New France (now Quebec) predated the existence MACUSA - wizards coming with no-maj from France settled there. In the Harry Potter books, French from France wizards and British wizards had different ways of doing things - see Molly and Fleur. We know that MACUSA covered the USA - we don't know how things were done in either New France, Upper and Lower Canada or the Dominion of Canada - or even how the Native American wizards governed themselves before and after the Europeans came.
