The World According to the Portuguese dub of The Amazing World of Gumball

Get ready for a shocker! The world on the Portuguese TAWOGB is completely different from the world on the original TAWOGB!
Here's an analysis:
-The USA is completely different: they speak Portuguese, is part of the CPLP, pay in Euros and there is no sign of anyone speaking English in sight.
-Portugal is as it is.
-Elmore is still the same.
-There is no Europe or the Americas are Europe. What Gumball says in the original version of The Dress is that Gumballoopseggwobbleunderpants is from Europe, in the Portuguese version, the aformentioned alter ego (which works in a way similar to Conchita Wurst) is from Asia. This makes Asia much larger and more populous than it is in real life.
-Japan pays in Euros, that's a reference to Portuguese dubs of Doraemon and Shin-Chan.
-Gumbaldnowigbattleaxeninja is a large country stretching from Croatia/Hungary to western China.
Eat your heart out, Phineas and Ferb.
