Popular culture often stereotypes certain behavior or products with certain countries – for example, wine is associated with France, electronics with Japan or pizza with Italy. But according to cost-estimating website Fixr.com, those things aren’t what people are actually searching for.
Earlier this month, the website put together a map of the world with the most-Googled-for object in each country, using the autocomplete formula of “How much does * cost in [x country].”
Although the results are not scientific — since Google autocomplete results vary based on the searcher’s history, the time of search, and the place of search — they do provide an understanding about how countries are perceived.

- People want to know how much weddings costs in Pakistan.
- People want to know how much cows cost in India.
- People want to know how much electronics cost in China.
