North America took me by surprise

Can you name the countries of North America? Most people easily name Canada and the United States of America. Some clever people will correctly add Mexico to the list.

Did you know that North America is composed of 23 sovereign states and 25 non-sovereign states? I didn’t.

This is the sort of simple realization that deservedly keeps me humble and open-minded.

Check it out for yourself.
