But I don't remember the *why* of why the line was drawn so as to include Brazil (other than possibly/probably the fact that the Portugese were already there).

On the plus side, knowing that Brazil was originally a Portugese colony led me to infer that part of the grammar problems I was having recently reading a technical paper are likely due to the fact that the two authors most likely speak Portugese and not English as their first language, since that's where they're from...
