Where Americans Think Ukraine Is

(Submitted by Anonymiss of Nuking Politics [High Praise!])

Each dot depicts the location where a U.S. survey respondent situated Ukraine; the dots are colored based on how far removed they are from the actual country, with the most accurate responses in red and the least accurate ones in blue.

A lot of wrong answers, but, surprisingly, NO ONE picked Mexico or Japan.

Oh… and before you ask, I don’t know which blue dot is Joe Biden’s.

  1. Honestly, haven’t they ever played Risk? However, I’d like to see how many Ukrainians could find Iowa on a map (for that matter, it’s probably not too easy for much of America)


  2. Y’know, when I was a kid – like, early single digits – I had a wooden map puzzle of the United States and of The World. The names were on the little pieces (or close by where they go on the map for like your Delaware and Sierra Leone. I used to love those puzzles.

    And all through school I’d rock Geography.

    Guess I’m dating myself with that… schools don’t even teach Geography anymore.


  3. @AT — had the same wooden puzzle for the U.S.

    Loved putting it together, but even at my young age knew they were mostly going to make their money off of people buying a second puzzle because Delaware disappeared on a road trip.
