Habits, cultures, consumerism, language, driving habits, roadway conventions, etc

Is it Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Luxembourg, Spain?

If course I know it varies between parts of North America as well.

Rural Scandinavia not like Canada either? Especially the northeastern parts? I heard some people say it’s a bit like Minnesota.

I forgot Iceland, Greenland though but they are technically off the continent. But so is UK and Ireland.

Iceland, Greenland, UK and Ireland are all islands, Europe is a continent.

After the United Kingdom, I would place France at the top of the list.

The United States is a child of those countries. The legal, academic, economic, religious and cultural foundations of the United States spawned from there.

European Continent, and Mainland Europe are used interchangeably, but not always.

"Continental Europe or mainland Europe is the contiguous continent of Europe, excluding its surrounding islands.[1

"The most common definition of Mainland Europe excludes these continental islands: the Greek Islands, Cyprus, Malta, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, the Balearic Islands, Great Britain and Ireland and surrounding islands, Novaya Zemlya and the Nordic archipelago, as well as nearby oceanic islands, including the Canary Islands, Madeira, the Azores, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and Svalbard.[8]"

Iceland, maybe. It's much more sparsely populated than most of Europe, and Reykjavik is a pretty new city by European standards, founded only in 1786. And unlike a lot of European countries, it doesn't have the highly divergent dialects / regional languages (cf. Lombard, Sardinian etc. in Italy) or the intense regional conflicts with active secessionist movements (e.g. Catalonia and Galicia in Spain).

Not Europe geographically, but a lot of Siberian cities remind me of American cities, with their relatively newer architecture, post-industrial look, wider spaces, and gridded street plans. IMO this neighborhood in Novosibirsk could be in a poor area of Houston or Memphis if you squint.
