About This Quiz

The United States of America is massive. Contained in its hugeness is enough land to be most of Europe, but unlike Europe, the US speaks only one language and shares much of its culture. Much, however, is not all.

Some parts of the country grew mostly out of specific immigrant groups. In the Northeast US, Irish, Dutch, and British immigrants shaped much of the accent and even the local laws. Asian immigration changed the face of the West Coast of the US. Certain products so dominate regions of the US that their brand names are synonymous with the product. Even foods are consumed differently: in some parts of the US, take out is packaged in plastic, while in others it is packaged in paper.

In TV ratings, these cultural differences become clear. There are even names for sections of the country that favor specific genres of television, meaning the makers of these shows can look at those cultures for content they can produce without worrying if the audience will get it.

So how distinct is your regional identity? Is it so obvious it falls out of your mouth when you speak, or is it more explicit when you eat? Do you think we can guess your home state? Just answer these easy questions.
