Not just in their neighboring regions or in the English speaking world but across the world, whether it be culture (be it music, film etc.), reputation or fame, geopolitical influence, how well others in the world know information about these countries and their cities etc.

Which one takes it?

Everyone should ignore people from both countries in this thread and see what happens. Maybe also Americans and New Zealanders.

Canadians are categorized as North Americans, mixing in with Americans.
