Check the links, those two are just a couple amongst many, many "creative" answers. Texas and Italy seem to be two of the locations most often correctly indicated.

Why not have Americans try to name the provinces of each country? Seems a bit more fair.

There are 50 European countries and 50 states in America. Seems pretty fair. I tried looking up how many provinces there are in Europe, but I'm guessing its pretty high.

There's a shitton of provinces in Europe. There's 12 in Holland and that's how far my knowledge extends.

Hah!

Seriously though, I could do pretty well with labeling the countries and even most of the capitals/largest cities, but the provinces? Fuck no. I know a few tidbits, like that Switzerland has 26 cantons, but... that's about the best I can say.

Do you like, sneeze and accidentally step into a different province or something?

It still blows my mind people can take day trips through multiple countries not their own.

I could name the countries that make up the UK... and I could find London, Glasgow, Cardiff and a few other cities on a map... but I definitely couldn't name all of the shires. And the UK is the part of the world outside of the US and Canada I know best.

I could find the Champagne region of France on a map, though. That's pretty much it.

That is such a strange concept to me. I mean I guess we have counties but you have to drive like thirty or forty minutes at 75mph just to get on the other side of one most of the time.
