    Considering the titles on the books, the unfashionable typewrighter, and whatever stand the laptop is on, I doubt anything in this room is meant for anything more than a photo shoot or making someplace look fancy and suitable for gentlemen. What do you call people who move into gentrified areas! Anyways, even the plant seems to have wires. Fortunately there is a backup globe here. And you have to admit, they have a good reason for connecting Islands to continents by way of thick landbriges. Otherwise they loose the islands, like they did with Iceland, the Caribbean, and my, they moved Japan to a weird spot. At least We know these weren't made in China, or they would have shown Taiwan connected to the mainland like Hainan is.

    UK: "Sorry chaps, it was nice while it lasted, but we chose to do a Brexit."
    EU: "Hey, listen to that, the Belgian peninsula says funny stuff."
    UK: "What the- AAAH! It's got my Kent! Help! Help!"
    EU: "Shh! Relax, it will be over soon."

    Meanwhile in Denmark: "Dude, where's my Kopenhagen?"

    Nobody has realized that Sicily, Sardinia, and the Peloponnese have all been deleted? You're all so heartless.

    Only for them to turn around and see that the Russians and Turks jumped aboard. As well as the Black Sea. There is pointedly no Georgia, however

    Of course, the first thing I noticed was Novaya Zemlya.

    That is actually the North Jutlandic Island. You know. The thing normally at the top of mainland Denmark.

    After the disappearance of the other Danish isles it could drift into the Baltic to finally fulfill its destiny: being a land bridge between Sweden and Germany.

    Pic unrelated (although it admittedly also omits the Danish islands)

    No it doesn't. See? They are right where Svalbard use to be. Yes, Legoland is going to be rather less appealing for tourists.

    Isn't that bad, although the colors are almost the polar opposite to those normally used and the map makes minor colonies into independent states

    Let's see... Somalia - missing (but 'Somaliland' shown); no South Sudan; DRC merged into the Republic of the Congo; and I think Equatorial Guinea has vanished too...

    BTW - on that article, is a "retaliation" map, in which Ethiopia is merged with Somalia.
