Fixed the title for you. You got it right in the caveats.
In fact, if someone called Canada an American country, I would assume they meant a country under American influence rather than being part of these two continents.
It's certainly not "most people" who think this. Even in Germany and France. Even in Latin America. And even amongst that tiny, tiny minority of people, they are certainly aware of the more common use of the demonym, but choose to use it to mean something else for one of the reasons I outlined above. There is nobody alive on Earth today who would be confused by using American to refer to things from the USA, even if they are among the tiny handful who prefer using the term differently. it's impossible that you don't already know this. You're being disingenuous at best.
I'd have guessed Ecuador before Peru in fact, even though it's much smaller, although looking at the source Peru is [just!] ahead of Ecuador.
Colombia and Venezuela are more jagged, especially in the Caribbean, and have a lot more islands (about 75 and 300 respectively).
Chile is the Norway of South America, especially in the south where you can't move for all the coastline...
