I would be offended by that if it weren't a fact that Americans are painfully ignorant about geography. However, a rare few like me actually care about the world around us.

Why should someone halfway around the world know every tiny city on Earth? I guarantee most people in Europe wouldn't rattle off Appleton, Wisconsin and Plymouth, Michigan. Don't be a prat.

You shouldn't generalize a country of 300+ Million because of stuff you see in YouTube videos online. There are many among the American populous that are very well-versed in geography.

I'm pretty good at geography and have travelled a fair bit, but I only got 3. 7 is quite high in my opinion.

The average is so high because the knowledge is so obscure most people steer clear. Because they think they probably wont get more than 1 or 2. (I think many people only tale quizzes when they estimate to get atleast half right, and some only do they quizzes they know they are good in, so where they expect 80%+)

People who take more involved quizzes about a specific country are often either from that country or have an interest in that country.

I must have tried Vaxjo three or four times to make sure. Kalmar too, but maybe that's just my appreciation for history leading me to over-estimate its population.

I wonder why Umeå has the honour to be 5th most guessed. I knew the first 4 but no more. All the others are equally unknown to me. (though Lund vaguely rings a bell, but I might be imagining that ;) )

If you see Sweden in a world map with only a handfull of cities marked, Umeå is probably going to be in there because it's the biggest city in the northern half of the country.

Always fascinating to see the population drops of major cities. 4th place being already under 200k.

Nope, I can only name 4 ^^ but when I started I thought I could only do one, so I am not displeased.. From the ones I missed only Lund and Örebro might be vaaaguely familiar, but I might be making it up too, sometimes when you see something for the first time it looks familiar even if its is new.

Edit haha I see my previous comment from years ago, and then too I was questioning if I was imagining Lund sounding familiar haha.
