CLARIFICATION: this quiz was edited by quizmaster, my original quiz was intentionally non-political since my country has been ravished by autocratic regimes, the answer to the question "President of Venezuela, 2013-" is not only wrong but deeply disrespectful to my people and our collective tragedy and also ignorant of the political process we are in the middle of.

On a lighter note, too bad the "arepa" question was deleted, and being born and raised in the city of Maracaibo I can assure you it is hydrologically speaking a Lake connected by a canal and the Bay of Tablazos to the Gulf of Venezuela in the Caribbean Sea.

In South America there was a thing a while ago about the US goalie being the long lost son of the Venezuelan dictator or something.

They've won more than any other country except for the United States, and maybe the Philippines, I forget if the latter is in 2nd or 3rd place. I think 3rd. Those 3 are far above anyone else.

For some reason the rule from the previous question had transferred in my head for the movie clue as well. I couldn't figure out how Up should start with a T and was wracking my brain to try and think of another Pixar movie. I guess it's too early in the morning for quizzes.

It's Amerigo not Americo, although I see how one could confuse the two consonants

Well, in Spanish (here in Venezuela) we actually know him as Américo Vespucio. It was weird finding out that his actual name is Amerigo Vespucci.

It's interesting, because you're supposed to stress the "i", not the "e" (in Italian, at least), so the original name is pronounced "Amerìgo". That's what they teach us in Italy, although I don't think the name has Italian origins at all
