The most Googled products in every country in one crazy map

In popular culture, certain countries are stereotypically associated with certain products — beer in Germany, carpets in Turkey, electronics in Japan. 
But those things aren't what people are really searching for. 
Earlier this month, the cost-estimating website Fixr.com 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]."
While the results are far from scientific — since Google autocomplete results vary based on the searcher's history, the time of search, and the place of search — they do say at least a little bit about how countries are perceived. 
Some of the fascinating (and troubling) results: 
• People want to know how much a MIG aircraft costs in Russia
• People want to know how much a prostitute costs in Brazil
• People want to know how much rhinoplasty costs in South Korea
Here are the maps.
