    This isn't really a design because Great Prophets are all identical but I'd like to see Hillel the Elder.

    There's a lack of Brazilian great People (even with Pedro's LUA), so, there some ideas:

    Machado de Assis (Industrial Great Writer) - "Memórias Póstumas de Brás Cubas" and " Dom Casmurro"
    Santos Dumont (Industrial Great Scientist) - Receive a Eureka for Flight tech and a free envoy
    Candido Rondon (Atomic Great General) - Extra movement in jungles for adjacent units, and generates culture when some adjacent unit is healing
    Oscar Niemeyer (Information Great Engineer) - Grants production toward wonder construction
    Lampião (Atomic Great General) - receive extra gold when conquering a city.
    Vital Brazil (Modern Great Scientist) - Campus near jungles receive a Science bonus
    Pedro Américo (Industrial Great Artist) - "Proclamação da Independência" and "Batalha do Havaí"
    Visconde de Mauá (Industrial Great Merchant) - Can create a new trade route and a new trader unit for free.
    Tamandaré (Industrial Great Adimiral) - Bonus atack against City-state's units
