Programmer, Father, typoist.
He is not related to any South American country, and this Brazil is not Brazilian.
The staff on a game (long closed) picked dystopian movie names, and this Brazil seized upon the Terry Gilliam movie, Brazil.

He chooses to revolt irrationally against the system until ultimately, the system drives him insane.
Other examples of movie-themed names from the same game were Barbarella and The Hunger.
