    It looks like an upside down and mutated Iceland

    Yup. The South Coast of Iceland (what would be the top here) is actually pretty smooth.

    To be honest, they probably never meant to place the flags correctly and just slapped them totally random on that map.

    I could ignore the sloppy borders (again a case of hand drawn over a modern map, in that regard is is almost tolerable)
    I might be able to ignore neutral Corsica and Sardinia (they forgot to fill in the paint)

    But then I noticed Croatia...

    (Also Italy in the wrong color)

    I didn't realise Finland, the Republic of Corsica-Sardinia and Transcarpathobitsofslovak Republic were neutral.

    Right. There seem to be two different shades of gray, but if the darker shade signified being part of the allies, then they would have Turkey and Finland as being part of the Allies.

    Indeed. But still a poor color choice. Another example for bad colors, the official Dystopian Wars world map. The best thing to say about it is that it isn't educational at all but for a tabletop game.

    It might be the lighting or the quality of the camera used, but Prussia, France, Japan and America are so similar to each other that they are hard to differentiate.

    Additionally while I won't say much about the improbably borders (it is fiction after all) the map makers visible left the OTL borders on nearly the entire map.
