    Well, they do use our currency…

    The Virgin Central Asia vs. the Chad Sahara.

    So they just have one guy sitting on top of one of the Andes mountains like a guru? And if a hiker ever finds him, he gets the best deal imaginable for whatever the company is selling?
    >Madagascar is Sri Lanka
    “So, uh… Sri Lanka.” “Yeah?” That’s an island, right?” “Yep, it has a little point at the top.” “Ah, okay, I see it now. Thanks.” “Hey, that’s why I’m here.”
    >”Hashakstan” doesn’t exist in the first place
    Mhmm.

    I was going to keep it up, but I just realized that not only did they duplicate the Americas (which I figured was just to fit more names in so they didn’t overlap), they seem to have HAND DRAWN the second one for some reason.

    Welcome to Niger. There was too much human suffering here so as you can see we sunk it into the ocean

    Well, I, for one, would agree with Moscow and Russia being two separate entities with zero connection.

    Cool it may be and as a setting for a game it would be wonderful but if you were to believe this to be actually the true shape of the world that's where the 'horrible education' part is located.

    Nor really related:

    still more compelling, interesting, and realistic than the Hunter x Hunter setting

    I look at this and I can't help to wonder.

    Which "Yah" is the real "Yah" as there are two "Yah". Is that where Hyrule is located, and they got Link to name the planet/sun/etc?

    What's with all the names being in ancient Egyptian?

    Because everything becomes more credible if one uses ancient Egyptian stuff, just ask yugioh!

    This is probably the most pointless map I've ever seen. It's not even entertainingly wrong, just fantastically lazy. Why even make it at all? For one, it would be so easy to find decent maps of the USA, and I don't understand what this map would be used for anyway.

    I am almost certain Jerusalem is supposed to be at the center. Though I suppose Greenwich might do.

    from an artistic standpoint, that would kinda make sense--historical T-and-O maps, as they're called, were oriented with east at the top of the map and with Jerusalem in the center

    Indeed. Just a bit of a joke on my part. And yes, those sort of maps were always stylized anyways. After all, would never have been a need for a Sueze Canal in this world.

    No no, that map is distorted by religious superstitions.

    The Flatearthers map is supported by pseudoscience and aliens! (and probably the tinfoil producing industry)
