A) Trick question. Know the concept?

B) Your spelling and grammar is appalling.

C) Your defence to our accusations of googling is poor, very poor. Get a new one, youve got a while to edit this post for the archives.

people, when using this conversationally would drop the 'Begawan'.

On the rare occasion that I have used "Bandar Seri Begawan" in conversation, I have dropped the "Seri Begawan" and simply used "Bandar".

I see clearly that there is a lack of geography/worldly knowledge in many in the USA, but that doesn't mean they don;t make up elsewhere, nor that it is fair to generalize. I've met plenty of people lacking in geography in the three continents I have been to.

Maps are not for educational-purposes only, they are for consultation, and they exist for exact purpose of not having to memorize every little detail!

Know some basic/minimum geography and have a decent sense of direction, period. Memorizing every country and capital is a plain waste of time and brings absolutely nothing of value (unless you are playing trivia, but that's justs a game).

You mean like many of the US state capitals and the US capital?  Yeah sure

I think people also give much of the rest of the world too much credit for knowing geography. I bet if you ask the common European they won't know as much either.
