You can read the next comic here [link]

Not a month goes by without someone confusing Sweden/Switzerland or Denmark/Netherlands. With Sweden/Switzerland it's because of the names of the countries, but with Denmark/Netherlands it's because people from Denmark are called Danish and people from Netherlands are called Dutch.

It's usually Americans who make those mistakes, but the first time I encountered it in real life was actually in England when I got in the wrong line to get into the country. I was supposed to stand in the Europe line but ended up in the Rest of The World line, and one of the women there could apparently tell something was wrong and asked me, "Are you Dutch?" I said no and handed her my passport which said Denmark and she responded with, "That's what I said: Dutch. Why are you lying about where you're from?" :XD:

Eventhough I am American, and I don't like stereotypes, I still find this funny as crap XD

Because SOME Americans ARE like that XD Just not all of them.

Also, if you want to really confuse an American, ask them about the UK, England and Great Britain.

I know that the characters are stereotypical personifications of countries as seen by humon but as an American I can't help but to imagine each of our states with different personalities because almost every state has its own accent, cultures and traditions. So to me America is like Legion with 50 different personalities within him lol
