What are the U.S. states and Canadian provinces in portuguese?

My google-fu is completely failing me. I am in need of the individual U.S. states and Canadian provinces in portuguese. This is for a translated book that needs each state/province in correct order. (For example, in Spanish Carolina del Sur came way before South Carolina in the English ordering.) Can anyone point me to a reference, or supply me the correct spellings?

Estados dos Estados Unidos and Subdivisões do Canadá could be a start.

Wow, effbot, eight minutes. Thanks, I think that will work.

Portuguese from what country?

Good point -- looks like Wikipedia's policy on European vs. Brazilian Portuguese is a bit fuzzier than I thought (I spotted-checked a few state names and didn't find any obvious differences, but leaving the details to native speakers).
