Arden Hayes is an incredibly cute five-year-old who also just happens to know way more about world geography than you do. He can name all of the countries of the world (and their capitals) on sight, and he can also tell at a glance that a slightly outdated map is missing South Sudan. This was his second appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live — in the first he talked about American Presidents — and you get the sense that Kimmel is basically just taking Arden’s word for it on a lot of these questions.

Incidentally, Arden is also able to immediately answer the question, “how many countries are there in the world?” which, I’m ashamed to admit, I wasn’t able to figure out in a recent post.
