Living somewhere in the rest of the world I sometimes wonder how little space we seem to occupy in the mind of the average US citizen.

I'm not sure that the average US citizen thinks much about events outside their own locale, never mind the whole US or the world.

This is pretty much how most people think.

No, I don't think 'most' is right. Many, perhaps.

Continental Europeans are often quite aware of the fact that there is a different country, with different politics, different laws and until recently different currency within a couple of hundred kilometres of their residence.

You know, on the left side of the pond, hundred years is a long time. On the right side, hundred kilometres is a long distance. Here in the meaning that people generally are aware that things can change a lot in those hundred kilometres.
