We all know that people search for some crazy things on Google, however what can be just as crazy is the search predictions which the search engine giant’s ‘autocomplete’ tool makes from time to time.

 In Google’s own words, these search predictions come from:

The terms you’re typing.
What other people are searching for, including trending searches.
Relevant searches you’ve done in the past.
As such, these results are very telling about what we as a population think. We’ve put together a look at what Google Autocomplete thinks about each European country.

We simply ran a search query of ‘[COUNTRY] is…’ 
and have shared the results on the map below.

Netherlands is part of the UK, apparently.

I question the accuracy of these facts.

No, they are bang on. If you want proof check out the Wales one.

Along with most of your posts - probably due to the fact you're using such a confusing language...

Better that than being a Japanese invention, like Finland....
