It actually made me giggle.
Don't forget - we outside the USA hear of maybe 3 states. California, New York (City - the state itself rarely gets a mention) and Texas. The other 47 (or 54 if you are in the White House, with your feet up on the Resolute desk) are kind of hard to place. Random bits, sure. Maine is where Stephen King lives. Idaho grows potatoes and is somewhere in the middle. Florida has it's own category on Fark and is apparently full of golden agers and idiots.
That is about it.
It is a brilliant illustration of local focus. The same person could correctly place the states and cities in Australia and probably do the same for most of Indonesia. Someone (reasonably well educated and traveled) from here would be hard pushed to even name all 50 states, yet would be able to fill out a blank map of the UK or Europe, no problem. Well - except for Poland. No one ever seems to remember where that is.
