Bahavia must have an interesting history in Toobworld, at least in the Toobworld of Sitcom Presidents.  This fictional country, often mentioned in 'Cory In The House', seems to be located in South America as Wikipedia claims that it resembles Bolivia.  But its cultural touchstones are from India, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan  and Pakistan.  The Bahavians in the show speak English with an accent that is a blend of Brazilian and Indian.

This applies only to Toobworld, but if Bahavia is to be found somewhere close to the west coast of South America as Wikipedia's comparison to Bolivia might suggest (Bolivia's land-locked), then the Indian/Uzbecki influence had to be due to eastern migration from the Greater Subcontinent regions across the Pacific.

And that would have entailed quite a journey around the underside of Australia and past the various island nations before a very long stretch across an empty expanse of ocean......
