America is nothing if not a country full of enthusiasts. We are loud in the global conversation, and take up a lot of space culturally, for better or for worse.
While we are one of the richest nations on the planet, our education system faces perpetual budget cuts, which means a lot of us don't get the rigorous geography and history lessons our government could afford.
Compared to countries where people speak multiple languages and have a general grasp of world geography, American primary education doesn't always serve us as well, and this displays itself most obviously in social media debates.
Obviously, not all Americans expect the entire world to speak English and get basic geography questions wrong before yelling about American exceptionalism, America is full of lots of smart people working for a better world. However, there is still enough confusion awry for me to compile this list, and sometimes it's cathartic to laugh at our mistakes.
