Santee is a familiar name though. A side branch of the Sioux tribe.

I grew up in Northern California and I never heard anything about Riverside until I was in my mid-teens. No one is missing much.

I think this shows that non Americans know plenty of our cities. I had to dig deep on that second list. Bet most Americans wouldn't know as many lesser famous cities in other countries.

Because most of the cities outside the US aren't used as much in Hollywood movies.
All we see is Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal/Tijuana/London/Paris/Monte Carlo/Berlin/Prague/Venice/Rome/Istanbul/Hong Kong and sometimes
Rio/Amsterdam/Madrid/Barcelona/Milan/Florence/Vienna/Dubai/Jerusalem/Mumbai/Bangkok/Kyoto/Tokyo/Sydney but that's pretty much it.
