how about simply using what already exists?
Brazil [data freely available (but may need to cite the source which may
defeat what you are trying to achieve?) at:
has three sub-administrative layers (region, state, municipality).
overlay a random polygon of your new country somewhere in the country
(should be big enough) and you will end up with at least 2
If you want can then shift the coordinates to any location (ocean,
middle of a desert etc)......
What am I missing?
