I got 0. Gave up pretty early because I knew I wasn't going to get any. Reading the answers, I should have known 3 or 4. I used to laugh when non-US citizens couldn't get our states' names, but now I'm impressed when they can. I know some US citizens that can't do that. Good for you, aldobetancourt. Makes me think I need to learn more about the rest of the world.

I spent 3 months in Mexico and most Mexicans seemed to think the US consisted of Texas, New York, California, and Miami. When we told them we were from Alabama they would just look at us funny, clearly having no idea what Alabama is. I bet most of them can't name 8 states is my point.

I encounter people from many countries, and Mexico most especially, that know a lot of American geography because they have family there. The average Mexican probably has at least one family member in at least 20 different states.

I would wager that more Mexicans can name US states than vice versa. After all, once they get here they'll need to be able to get around! I don't know of many Americans who dream of emigrating to Mexico....

Most Mexicans actually don't want to immigrate to the United States. In fact, in 2014, more people moved into Mexico from the United States than vice versa, mostly Mexicans who had previously moved to United States. My point is, most Mexicans probably cannot name American states because they could care less about their northern neighbour, even if the US is the most powerful country in the world.

And now a Map! excellent addition. How do you add a map? I'd love to put one on the Ukraine regions quiz I just made.

You can borrow maps from other quizzes, but I don't think there is any quiz that features a map of Ukrainian regions so you would have to make it yourself. I don't know how to do that, though.

If you're not including Mexico D.F. in the answers, you may want to have it filled in at the beginning. I know you wrote it in the directions, but it still took my tired self a few seconds to figure out what I was doing wrong.

The distinction is that if you live in a country you naturally pick up knowledge of its geography, but to learn the geography of a different country you have to go out of your way to try to learn it. For many of us Americans this quiz is the first time we've ever tried to learn the Mexican states. (Although a depressingly high number of Americans know nothing about their own country's geography, either.)

You should accept Estado de Mexico or State of Mexico as well for the state named Mexico. That's the official name. Thanks!
