If Americans, Britons, Australians, South Africans and any other English-speaking people made up the absolute majority of the Brazilian population, then they would probably have most of the geographical names translated to their English equivalents.
Três Corações, Minas Gerais would then read "Three Hearts, General Mines"; "Rio de Janeiro" would read "January River" (Why not?!); "Pernambuco" would change to "Legambuco"; "Paraíba" to "Stopiba"; "Sergipe" to "Bejeep," not to mention other geographical labels, all of which easily render into their English equivalents.
