Entering even a general location can be problematic, though. I used to have "Germany" given as my location, which led to some people accusing me of being anti-American whenever I criticized Bush, and at least one person here sending me PMs calling me a Nazi. The trouble is, I'm an American, born and raised there, and I spend about a month a year in the U.S.. I also vote in U.S. elections, and closely follow the news.
Another U.S. citizen who lives abroad has also been accused of being anti-American.
So you see, there can be real reasons for indicating "silly" locations.
