Isn’t it remarkable that there are 170 named geographical references in the Book of Mormon? Would we expect this if Joseph Smith wrote it all himself?

The Book of Mormon names 170 geographical locations throughout the book. There are well over 100 which form part of the storyline even though the book is around 500 pages long. The named places in the Book of Mormon are also of varying types, including lands, cities and areas. 

How long would it have taken Joseph Smith to have come up with the names of all these places? Why would he include so many places if each one would only add to the complexity of the book?
