My prefix is from a united land
My infix, two joints, but not on your hand
My suffix is someone you meet day to day
Together fortunate, or so some would say

The last line is not actually a direct reference to the answer, but is related to the answer in some way.

This puzzle involves homophones (I wanted to add a tag for it but no tag seems to exist)

Are you

BRITNEY SPEARS?

My prefix is from a united land

A BRIT comes from the United Kingdom.

My infix, two joints, but not on your hand

A KNEE is a joint, two of them are KNEES.

My suffix is someone you meet day to day

You would meet your PEERS on a day to day basis.

Put these together and you get

BRIT + KNEES + PEERS = BRITNEY SPEARS.

Together fortunate, or so some would say

This might refer to her song Lucky from her 2000 album Oops...I Did It Again.

  • $\begingroup$ Correct answer, but you didn't get the last line. Can you figure it out? Hint: What's a synonym for someone who is fortunate? $\endgroup$ – Ertai87 Sep 12 '18 at 14:34
