Magical Congress of the United States of America

The Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) is the governmental authority for the Wizarding world in the USA (Pm, WFT). The headquarters of MACUSA is hidden in the Woolworth Building. The emblem of MACUSA features an American flag combined with a phoenix (WFT). MACUSA is a single body, unlike the Muggle two party system (JKR:Tw). The president in 2014 was Samuel G. Quahog (Pm). The MACUSA employs Aurors, just like the Ministry of Magic does in the UK. Percival Graves and Porpentina Goldstein were Aurors for MACUSA in the 1920s (WFT).

Commentary

Etymology
