Find myself just wondering what it looks like on the hemisphere on the other side...Who knows, maybe those borders are part of the Nordstream project: Poland and Russia carve up Belorussia and Ukraine but have to restore the 1937 borders with Germany. Danzig will become the Singapore of the Baltic or something like that.
Speaking of Baltic hijinks:

I like to think the Low Countries ended up somewhere in the Carribean, thus allowing the Surinamese in the Netherlands to keep a close connection with their homeland. Well, one of their more recent ones. Much of them originally were brought in from Indonesia and- I am over complicating things. Just imagine it though, with St. Martin as a capital for their union, or for them to all be in the EU. Almost seems like it would be fun up until El Niño and other hurricanes both sneak behind and over the dikes to flood everything. That fresh water inner sea they worked so hard to make will turn into a mosquito pond. Or just be the main source f drinking water for the country. Weird the map labels West Bank, though considering it is one of the more lush part of Israel and Palestine, it makes sense.
considering general wraparound, it's probably mostly land. this angle is like if we're looking at a hemisphere with the entire Pacific visible at onceFind myself just wondering what it looks like on the hemisphere on the other side...
In the east definitely, in the North, doesn't really look like it. Especially in the Northwest, that slight touch on the Black Sea looks event smaller than the Georgian Coast without Abkhazia.
Amazing how the Safavid's borders nearly perfectly followed modern borders
I mean the modern day Turkmenistan border and the north border of Azerbaijan are definitely there.In the east definitely, in the North, doesn't really look like it. Especially in the Northwest, that slight touch on the Black Sea looks event smaller than the Georgian Coast without Abkhazia.
Congratulations to Novgorod for not getting absorbed into MuscovyNow this is obviously from a game so it is not educational anyways (and technically depending on how a match plays out this could be true for the in-game world)
Still, when you see "Russia 1914" you don't expect this:

(Bonus points for when you look closely you'll notice that what would be the Kaliningrad enclave in our world is obviously submerged)
That is.... Damn near indescribable... indescribably bad, that is...
South America is also screwy with the Amazon shrunken...
TIL Yugoslavia only existed in the 1940s and only had half of SloveniaOn the upside, they got the borders of Germany nearly correct in all pictures (okay they forgot the Saar region in several maps and in the 1942 one they forgot that the Nazis also had annexed Luxembourg and to flat-out count the General Government as part of Germany is a bit odd but we had much worse maps in this thread), just don't look at any other borders.

Dammit! I told you not to look at other borders!
