The Ministry of Magic fell through a corruption era during the time of Voldemort’s brief ruling on what would be the seventh year of Albus Potter. During this time, Voldemort tried to take control North and South America, but were unable to succeed in capturing them because the Imperius Curse, because by this time the European Spilt was official, most of the Ministry members were gone. Unfortunately, many other continents were taken over.

Country’s that escaped were: Japan, South Africa, parts of Russia, the Philippians, and all that joined in the European Spilt.
