    North America has 3 big countries, but it also has Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador and Panama on the mainland, and the Caribbean island nations are also generally counted in North America as well.

    I know exactly where Canada is. It is (from Detroit) directly south of the U.S.

    PS. For Toni, it is the country to the Southeast of the U.S.

    actually according to the maps in the classrooms it's to the northeast of the rest of teh US...

    it's amazing how we get so much snow, and how the penguins and polar bears survive since we're so far south

    Based on responses on all the other GS threads, I can't believe there's so few Canadians appearing in this poll. I think they're hiding. C'mon you Canucks, stand up and be counted!

    Well, Mexicans can object to the term "United States" as well - their country's full name is "United Mexican States"!

    I live in Canada now so I put Canadian but actually I am from Europe.
    That's the problem I have - to be (European) or not to be.

    Wow, Europe's a country now, but Russia is separate?

    Do we say the country we live in, or were born in? Can we vote twice to get dual nationality covered?
