WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel asks Americans to name any country on a map, and they seriously struggle

So many people seem to think Africa is a country...

Americans often get a hard time for their intelligence...

They have produced some of the greatest minds of all time, as well as some of the most exceptional artists that the world has ever seen.

But it seems like geography isn't exactly their strong point.

Chat show host Jimmy Kimmel had his crew take to the streets of Los Angeles to ask random Americans to point out a country on a map.

Just one country.

Any country.

And it goes terribly.

Watch it for yourself here:

Some of the most common answers include: 'Asia' and 'Africa', neither of which are countries...

It's important to note that they were given the opportunity to simply point out America, the country that they're from, but they couldn't even do that...

One lady even goes as far as to say: "Who knows stuff like that?"

Most people do...

But it's not all bad. A kid who looks no older than 10 saves the day, by being actually able to name a few countries, and point them out in the right place.

Maybe the future is bright. The present, however, not so much.

This isn't the first time that Kimmel has tried to put the intelligence of Americans to the test. A few months ago he asked people on the streets to simply 'name a book', and the results were exactly as bad as you'd expect them to be.
