I really enjoy these quizzes, but after spreading the (country) love in the European and Asian ones, why do 18 of the 24 questions have to be about the USA when there are 35 countries plus many other territories in the Americas?

I really wish they would start a quiz site for Europeans and Asians so we wouldn't have to read the complaining of non Americans about bias in the quizzes. I am not American but I understand that the site and the quiz creators generally are American. Go out and create your own wonderfully non American site. I will go there as well and not complain about regional bias, I promise.

Someone has created several quizzes about geography of the Americas without the USA. I'm American but I enjoy taking both. I also take the quizzes about France, Australia, etc. I also do not understand all the whining about the quizzes biased toward American questions. If you do not like them, then skip them once you see the questions just as I skip the quizzes written in foreign languages I don't understand, or all the sports quizzes. Sheesh, people, give it a rest.

The fact that the United States exists is inconvenient for some world views and therefore a constant source of irritation to those who hold such views.

I would also question exactly WHO are writing the questions. If someone is American, there's likely a bias toward writing Ameriocentric questions. If someone is French, Canadian, Brazilian, South African, Cambodian, etc., their quiz submissions will mostly likely be biased toward their own knowledge. So, the simple solution is to get more people outside the US to write quizzes.

"Canadian city named after Mount Royal" How the bleep did I manage to not get that. It gives you the answer in the question for goodness sakes. I went through every Canadian city I could think of, bar the blinking answer. I'm off to hang my head in shame.

Nothing "technically" about it. It not only is the largest river in the US, but it's also the longest river in North America. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missouri_River

I don't usually comment on my score, but I thought I would mention that I got a perfect score on this one because I count at least six questions that I definitely wouldn't have gotten before I started doing Jetpunk quizzes. I'm learnding!

Also, I resent the fact that Manitoba felt the need to try to one-up Minnesota's slogan :P

Taking this quiz made me suddenly realize that the US needs a major city named Royal Mountain. Canada has Montreal, which is French for Royal Mountain, and Mexico has Monterrey, which is Spanish for...Royal Mountain. And our language is English.
