Chances are, if you are a product of the US education system, you suck at geography. Let Yakko help you*.

*He won't help you too much; the song is missing Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Comoros, Côte d'Ivoire, Dominica, Equatorial Guinea, Grenada, Kiribati, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Moldova, Nauru, Northern Ireland, Federated States of Micronesia,San Marino, São Tomé and Príncipe, Seychelles, Singapore, South Africa, Solomon Islands, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines,Tonga, Tuvalu, Vatican City, Vanuatu, Wales,and Samoa. There are also several countries that have changed names or split since this was made, so you also need: The Democratic Republic of Congo (instead of Zaire), The Czech Republic and Slovakia, Slovenia, Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina (for Yugoslavia)and all the countries of the former USSR (referred to as Russia in the song)- Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova.
