I know what you mean. Though everywhere has their regional cultures and rivalries, I think that it's hard to grasp, even for Americans, just how vast the country is. A friend from England once asked me if I knew all the counties in the U.S., which was a reasonable question from his perspective as a lot of people in England are familiar with the English counties and their distinct accents and customs. I don't even know all the counties in my state and I live in a pretty small one.

There are a few thousand counties, it would be pretty hard.

Haha what a question. I think I could name 4 or so counties in my state out of 30 or so.
