This reminds me of the thread with the youtube(?) video where the guy would ask geography question to Americans. For some reason they kept thinking Australia was Iraq. I would disagree with Ireland with the British flag and then written as the 51 state though.
It would imply that the irish gov't is a rubber stamp to the Americans. I guess the person was trying to imply that because of the large irish population it would make sense, but usually if anyone refers to the 51 state it  tends to be either Puerto Rico, Israel or Washington DC.
Because the lettering was small I thought Canada was Moose Head- which probably is what the nederlander meant .
I would have put in India with a caption like Outsourceville or "Hello my name is John can I help you" since almost all American companies use Indian people for customer service now.
With all the news of AIDS in Africa I would have thought they would have put that on the African continent with diamonds. But then this isn't my work of art.

My initial response was that it is the truth. I giggled to myself.

Since it's making fun of Americans' stereotypical lack of knowledge about the world... not showing Ireland as independent works within the oeuvre.

And most people don't know, or care, where diamonds come from.

It's uber-simple because most Americans are dolts.
