America is a pretty extraordinary country. (Okay, it's the best country.) In this quiz, you're going to get a real sense of why that's true.
So much has been invented and discovered here, and the eyes of the world look to us for further innovation, civil rights evolvement, artistic and scientific achievement, and spiritual progress. Truly, it boggles the mind, especially when you think of just how young our country really is! There's still so much time and room for improvement, and the hearts and minds of the U.S. are focused on just that.
Americana refers to things that are inherently American. For instance, the flag, military relics, hamburgers, Coca-Cola, baseball... you get the picture. In this quiz, we're not only going to explore these things, but we're also going to take you on a trip through the states, delve into American history, and throw in some completely useless questions about idiosyncratic American stuff! Hey, nothing wrong with a little variety.
It's about to get very stars-and-stripes and red, white, and blue in here. Do you think you can handle it? Of course you can, because you live in the greatest country in the world, and that means that you're ready for any challenge that lies ahead. God Bless America.
