I suspect that Steam identifies a location through the IP address, it went straight to the Brazil server before I even put my address in. There are all sorts of financial controls to prevent money laundering from Brazil, so things like Paypal, Amazon, Netflix and now Steam try not to let anyone resident here use external sites. I still have a UK Ebay account linked to a UK bank account, but everything else goes to the .com.br version, unless you really want to mess around with VPNs.

Could someone get a train sim for East Anglia have a practice for a bit and then let Greater Anglia know how to run a railway that works with rolling stock fit for purpose?
