I don't think I can beat @J. Westrate 's map.

It's 1980, and things are slightly stranger. Find the changes in all continents! Not Oceania. Or Antarctica.

Here is my attempt at an uncanny map. Let's see if anyone can find everything wrong with it.
There is a dispute between Yunnan and Myanmar that was actually resolved in the 1960s, except only the southernmost disputed territory is shown.

There is a small new province-level division in Pukou, Jiangsu (this may be an artefact of the base map)

Nantong, Jiangsu, is part of Shanghai

Panama Canal Zone

Seminole autonomous region

Iran got murdered
Lesotho, Swaziland and a few Bantustans have sank
New York is.....different
Southern India is independent
Yugoslavia's internal divisions have changed
The West Coast of the US is sinking into the sea

That's all correct. New York City is now part of New Jersey. There's nothing special about Kosovo, and Macedonia is one of those federal states. And south India is actually part of Sri Lanka now. There are many more changes still.
 
What did America, Mexico, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Germany, Russia, India, China, Brazil, Argentina, and Australia do to deserve subdivisions?
 
These OTL maps but with a few differences really need their own threads, they're not really map shitposts. Unless they're meant to shitpost the thread from actual map shitposts, in which case they technically are map shitposts.

Here.

Edit: CalBear locked that thread and said that this thread is "a reasonable home" for spot-the-difference maps. Don't worry too much though, I probably won'y be making more for a while.

A Hope For A Better Middle East: A Map Showing Accurate Scientifically Proven Borders To Stablish An Stable Peace On The Region

Made it in like an hour. The Idea came from the /r/imaginarymaps discord. We were digging a guys deleted reddit account and there was a badly made map showing a """Better Europe""". And, so I decided to remake the middle east part while parodying the style of whatifalthist thumbnails for further comedy.

Ukraine was turned into a stateless waste, to permanently remove the threat its existence clearly poses to Russia's sovereignty

Also Caucassia has to be the most unstable, strife-torn country on the planet.

Not necessarily. A federation would actually work on that level unlike Russia where one culture dominates, you can have Belgium/Lebanon like political system
