About This Quiz

Depending on who you ask, there are between four and seven continents in the world right now. Some like to separate Asia and Europe, and some lump them together as Eurasia. Some keep North and South America separated, and some lump them as the Americas. How you understand the continents depends on where you were raised and educated for the most part, but at the end of the day, we all recognize there are some massive chunks of land spread across this world of ours, and they're very different from one another. From wildlife and ecology to culture and languages to climate and foods, we have a great range of places that we could choose to call home if we were so inclined.

With the world wide open to you, it's worth considering where you might best fit in. Do you like a warm climate? Maybe South America, Africa or Australia is best for you. Do you crave access to the finest fast foods in the world? Perhaps North America, Europe and Asia are in your wheelhouse. Do you never want to see a wild animal in your yard, or do you always want to see them? Do you demand modern conveniences no matter how far you travel, or do you prefer the world in a more natural state? There's literally everything in the world to choose from, so let's find what's best for you!
