Florida only borders the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, just like the northern coast of Cuba. The southern coast of Cuba does border the Caribbean.

Isn't Russia Europes largest oil exporter? I don't want to start the whole Asian/European debate here, but on JP, Russia is usually considered European.

Excluding it does make the question more interesting though, so I'm all for it, but I think you should mention it somehow.

I haven't looked it up but I believe Russia is a large oil producer, but does not really export as much. They consume most of what they produce.

As a Colombian it is sad that the clue for our country is Escobar a murderer, drug traficker and worst of the worst. Try our coffee, which is one of the best in the world

Don't gatekeep. Complain about Escobar. Complain about Nazis. Complain about clues that perpetuate dated, negative stereotypes.

Yeah, stick your heads into the sand instead of noticing and admitting problems. If Escobar is the best clue for Colombia, it's not the rest of the world's fault. I'm not saying it's the fault of Colombia's people either, but like it or not, they are the ones who have to change that, not the rest of the world. Also, Germany was the bully of Europe long before Hitler was ever born. Stereotypes exists for a reason.

I get the sentiment, but coffee isn't uniquely Colombian. I'm sure we could find something else, though.
