Americans Were Asked To Place European Countries On A Map. Here’s What They Wrote

For many Americans the world begins and ends in good ol’ USA. Heck over two thirds of Americans don’t even hold a passport. Still, if there is a place we do go to it is usually Europe. So you would expect some level of knowledge about that continent.

Buzzfeed recently put this knowledge to the test with a survey in which participants had to write in countries’ names on a blank European political map. Unfortunately, most of the respondents did not do too well. Take heart though, some of the nation’s most power people also tend to be a tad geographically challenged.
