It's a bit idealistic to assume people need to know anything about their country to become citizens? I met a lot of people in switzerland that can't compare their system of government with others in the world because they know nothing about it.
not really. if they don't know anything about it, then why do they want to join?

it would be like someone saying:

"hey, i wanna join your club. let me in"
"so, do you like rowing then?"
"oh, it's a rowing club? nah. don't know anything about it, but i hear you guys get 50% off at the lakeside bar."
"erm. no thanks. bye"
