Australia is not in Europe! Americans map out Europe

It’s always funny (and a little sad!) to see just where people place countries on a map. And Americans have had a bad rap over the years for being clueless when it comes to mapping out the European nations. So, Buzzfeed put some of its U.S. staff to the test and the results? ‘In our defense, Europe is really complicated.’ Ok, so it is. But take a look at some of these maps and you’ll either laugh or cry. Australia has been put in Poland’s place. ‘Second Poland’ and ‘France 2’ were named as countries. And countries Albania, Macedonia and Montenegro were labeled ‘stuff.’

See how many countries you can name on the map. Hint: there’s no such country as ‘Spain’s butt.’
