The World According to the United States of America

Get the Atlas of Prejudice on Amazon US | UK | Germany | France | Italy | Spain


The newest map from my Mapping Stereotypes project is again dedicated to the USA but on a much grander scale. Instead of simply Europe, it includes the whole world. I know this is a sort of a compliment since a large part of the US population doesn’t have a clue there is dry land outside their borders. Ronald Reagan for example, on one of his first international trips, was surprised to find out that Latin America is not a island. I have not much evidence to back it up, but I suspect Sarah Palin thinks Japan is a name of a car factory. And so on and so forth.

  • Japan ‘Toyota’? But Hondas are actually more common on the road now than Toyotas. Besides: Americans also think of sushi, anime and manga when they think of Japan;) Probably more than cars since Korea is taking over much of the cheap car market in the US now with Kias and Hyundais. Their main obstacle is American’s figuring out how to pronounce those names;)

  • This is completely ridiculous and the rest of the world is as least as ignorant about us as we supposedly are about it. And your crack about Ronald Reagan is an absolute lie. Fuck you.

    • So on one hand it is ridiculous but on the other it is true and the world is as prejudiced as you are? Have you heard about this thing called logic? Plus, Ronnie would strongly disapprove your swearing. The word “fuck” is reserved for liberals. If you still want to copulate with me, send a picture. If I like how you look and your breath is fresh, by all means!

  • Resident Evil—-LMAO!
    It was all funny as hell…….but I’m a American what do I know.
    Funny and true on some of our attitudes towards the rest of the world.

  • Excellent work!!!
    I just read it in newspaper a came here to check all maps! It is really funny, but I’m a little bit disturbed with some comments that some names are not funny since somebody find to be insulted by some maps! Unbelievable! What to say… pity for them since they don’t have a sense for world wide humor!
    American’s map of Europe is one of the favorite, where former Yugoslav republics are called – Resident Evil! I’m coming from one of them!
    Alpha, keep on doing this excellent work!!
