According to a Reader's Digest poll, as <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/world/europe/newsid_2062000/2062843.stm">discussed on the BBC</a>, people from Poland know more trivia about the EU than people from countries which are actually a part of the EU. Denmark and Italy did second and third best respectively, but then I would <b>hope</b> that Italians would knew that Romano Prodi has the presidency of the EU Commission!

Update #1: You can take <a href=""http://www.readersdigest.co.uk/magazine/euroquiz.htm"">this quiz</a> yourself, courtesy of the Reader's Digest UK web site. Thanks to <lj user="targaff"> for inquiring!

Update #2: I was wrong about Spain. Spain has the EU presidency now. Romano Prodi has the EU Commission Presidency. There's a difference. Also, you should be forewarned that, as of last time I looked, the Correct Answers incorrectly list Portugal as NOT being an EU country. It is an EU country. Norway, however, is not. See the <a href=""http://europa.eu.int/abc/governments/index_en.html"">EU web site</a> if you don't believe me.
