Wait....if it survived longer than OTL, how come fantasy maps are allowed.
 
You've got a couple of weeks to figure something out - maybe there's another way to get an image file of it?
Not really, and it honestly isn't very creative beyond the form, so making it with Gimp would be of no interest ... and I wouldn't want to ruin the physical form to get a good scan ...

An idea could be to put it on a decent setting and have a "photo of an exhibition from an ATL" kind of thing. It would certainly be very creative. We can always use more diversity on these things
 
I have a couple of ideas for some mofts:
Double-Sided Coin: Show a war/cold war map between 2 nations with almost identical ideologies (like between soviet and american stratocracies)
Death of a Bachelor: A map of a nation that has finally (re) united with another nation
It's Always Sunny: A map where you have to show a nation, or a part of the nation, on the Equator, or close by
In the Shadows: A map of a nation that has always been less important than it's neighbor, until that neighbor collapses. you have to show the aftermath of them becoming a major nation.
 
In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king: Show a country that is a major regional power, not because it is particularly powerful, but because its neighbors are exceptionally weak.
 
First of all, congratulations to @Višeslav for winning MotF 207 his map of Ukraine and its allies!

The voting thread for MotF 208 is now posted, so be sure to check that out and vote for your favorite!

Does it have to be a country? Can it be a first-level subdivision?
This would be fine, as long as the inhabitants of that province/state/prefecture/etc. have a significantly unique worldview that is reflected in the second map. :)

Does the second map need to be of the entire world? Could we have a map of a particular neighbouring region or even continents?
The second map does not need to be a complete world map, but it needs to show some portion of the world beyond the country portrayed in the first map. A regional or continent would be fine.

Thoughts on these?
 
The Holy Elsewhere Make a map showing a pivotal holy place that is away from the main areas of the religion it is important to.

World Police Make a map showing a regional conflict or its aftermath where a superpower or world-spanning empire has militarily intervened.

No, WE'RE The Real Government
Make a map showing a country during a civil war that's gone on long enough that most people outside the country just think of it as having split into multiple countries. Examples from OTL would be Korea with the ROK vs. the DPRK, or China with the PRC vs. the ROC.
