USA and the geography

National Geographic Society lets make a survey about geographical knowledge of young people in USA. It had catastrophic outcome:
The 63 percent didn't know where is Iraq, 70 percent didn't know where is Israel, 66 % didn't know where is nordwest (!). The 30 % of young people calculated the population in USA 1-2 milliard (but it is only 300 million). 50 % didn't find New York state, 30 % didn't find Louisiana state on the maps.
In our country the little kids know these things.
