I've honestly never heard that term...and I'm kind of glad. :-b

So you know a little bit about the country you wish to call your home.


By that rationale, shouldn't you have to take a state test when you move to a different state so that you "know a little bit about the state you wish to call your home"?


I'm a resident of my state, a citizen of my country.
