    Well, yes, that too. Mercator projection itself already kinda qualifies as educationally bad, no matter how well all other map aspects might be.

    Unrelated, according to reddit this was from a video about the Spanish Civil war:

    Also, Krakow is independent for some reason, and East Prussia. Aside from there being two Polands.

    The bad thing isn't that they simplified the map (although they might have gone a bit too far into oversimplification)

    The bad thing is where they placed Malta (even the simple style can't attribute for that error)
