There are about [does the arithmetic on his fingers] about 5 billion people on this planet who:

a) Do not live in the USA [but would like to], and
b) Think that Americans do not know much about their country.

Why even here in America's second bosom buddy-type country (those bloody Brits get everywhere ahead of us), we often hear that our capital city is Vienna.

Something about your education system deciding that Americans should learn about America first, and if you want to learn about the rest, hey we have all these cruise liners to take you away to magical faraway places in perfect security.

Still, in view of a) above, I would not worry if I were you.
