Okay, now take anyone in the world and ask them to locate those countries. I'm not sure the percentages would be way better. I know we criticise the USA easily for their lack of geography knowledge, but it's not like it's so obvious where those countries are located.

Of course, if they locate Iraq in South America, then okay we can be worried, but let's not exaggerate either.

11% who cannot find the USA, THAT is sad! lol!
