Is the first paragraph strictly necessary? It makes it seem like the website is solely targeted at Americans and American stereotypes than a Useful Notes page for anyone to find factual information regardless of which country or continent they make come from.

It does seem a bit too American-focused. I'll change it.

Isn't Spain considered Southern Europe?

No, but Greece is, Dunno why that is in the Balkans section.

Cryptic, it's because Greece and some of the Balkan nations share a common part of history (namely, both having been part of the Byzantine Empire at one point). I'll put a small note, nonetheless.

"Russia west of the Urals"...don't you mean EAST of the Urals?

Either way, this whole thing with labeling "Europe" and "Asia" as separate continents needs to end. No body of water or continental divide separates the two regions, so why does this blatant Eurocentric labeling still exist? It's ONE continent—Eurasia!

Okay, I get the alphabetic categorisation, but how about we have this:

  • Cyprus
    • Northern Cyprus

Sounds like a good idea?
