    I actually thought the white part was land at first and that it was a very fucked-up map of the Americas.:p

    Why is Taizz on that map, but not Delhi? Unless they put it in China...

    Unrelated, but why are Australia and New Guinea a different color than the rest of the non-Nepalese land?

    Even Nepal doesn’t want Australia in its kingdom. :(

    I'm not sure even Ghurkhas want to mess around with the place where LITERALLY EVERYTHING is trying to kill you.

    Anyways, it is not up to us to question the coloring choices of our new Himalayan Overlords.

    Map unrelated

    Whilst looking from top to bottom it's "fine, fine, fine, fine, fine, hmm not quite sure about that border between Romania and Bulgaria, Yugoslavia looks a bit wonky, WHAT THE F**K HAPPENED TO GREECE?"

    At first I wasn't able to see that map because my brain was interpreting the blue as ocean so I didnt recognise the coastlines but at first I was all "WTF is Moscow doing in the middle of thw ocean?!?"

    On account of maps that look fine at first glance but once you get into details... but at least they placed helpful darts pointing out where Luxembourg and Andorra are.

    probably a blessing that the photo is so blurry.

    I like how the blurring almost makes it look like the map is scurrying across the table, or about to hit you.

    So... an alternate treaty of Versailles? Some weird mashup of pre and post WWII?

    Not that it's the worst thing about this map*, but why is Cyprus shown as Turkish?

    *that prize has to go to Luxembourg, as implicitly noted by Albidoom (runner-up prize, imo, goes to Northern Ireland, for pushing west and successfully splitting the Irish Free State into two).

    Probably because it's on the map corner and given the general sloppiness of that map this might be an almost excusable error although the Dodecanese is also visibly NOT Italian colored; the Channel Islands (if that is what those two specks are) are obviously French; and the Baltic sea has again lost some islands.

    Hmm, I think the mouth of the Danube is also a good contender (admittedly at least it still flows into the Black Sea)
