One of the people who couldn’t find North Korea was actually in the Kimmel audience that night.
“Where are you from or do you even know?” Kimmel joked.
But Kimmel is far from the first to note that Americans can’t find North Korea on a map.
Earlier this year, The New York Times published an infographic that showed only 36 per cent of respondents selected the right country.
The Times also found that those who could find North Korea were more likely to have a higher opinion of diplomacy.
