  • $\begingroup$ If you want, you could write $\boxed{\times}$ to generate $\boxed{\times}$. Likewise, you could write $\Box$ or $\square$ to generate $\Box$. Just saying :) $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 22 '18 at 13:21

You are (edited at @MOehm's suggestion)

Providencia

I am part of South America politically

Geographically, the Caribbean islands are generally grouped as a part or subregion of North America, but politically, Providencia is part of Columbia

I am older than that

Providencia started as a colony in 1629, the Bahamas in 1718.

I unscramble the suffering caused by an ending marriage

"divorce pain"can be found anagrammed in Providencia

I unscramble a heavenly sound system by grotesque creatures

"Divine Orc PA" found anagrammed in Providencia.

Bonus

I [don't quite] unscramble an adult clip recoded by an intelligence agency yields
CIA prn video
found anagrammed in Providencia.

    $\begingroup$ Well done. I think you should anagram just the name proper, i.e. the last word, to get exact unscramblings (and a one-off for the unchecked one.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Sep 22 '18 at 16:16
  • $\begingroup$ @MOehm edited per your suggestion. thanks! $\endgroup$ – SteveV Sep 22 '18 at 16:45
  • $\begingroup$ Nice solve. For the plural creatures there is also another anagram of your one. $\endgroup$ – Tom Sep 22 '18 at 16:59
  • $\begingroup$ NP! I think you can include both for the plural. (Top question as usual). $\endgroup$ – Tom Sep 22 '18 at 17:06
  • $\begingroup$ Nice work! For the second clue I was thinking of rot13[Arj Cebivqrapr] in the Bahamas, but this works as well. $\endgroup$ – jafe Sep 22 '18 at 23:48
