Return of Horrible Educational Maps

Man this is wrong on soo many levels. Is it intentional? I thought of making a list but its simply too much.
If I remember correctly somebody had said earlier on the tread that this map was made up for a fictional travel guide for the country 'Molvania'.

EDIT: It was this post here.

I recognize this one! If you look at what should be Slovenia you’ll see it’s called “Molvania” with the capital at “Lutenblag”, this is from a humoristic fake travel guide to a made up Eastern European country. I wouldn’t be surprised if all the weirdness is intentional.

Edit: Yeah this one is parody for sure, just look at the Scandinavian cities like “Legoland”, “Koskenkorva” and “Surströmming”

Mmh, they forgot to colour in that piece of sea between Britain and Ireland.
They seemingly also distributed Poland according to the borders of the third partition in 1795.
Oh, and Luxembourg does not exist.

I think it's the other way round. The Baltic, Black Sea and Mediterranean are the same colour as that bit between Britain and Ireland. So I think that part is water and instead they have drained the Atlantic and North Sea.

A world where giant dams have been built at Gibraltar and across the Kattegat, in order to keep the water trapped in and stop it escaping into the dried up Atlantic basin.

Bit of a pity then that nobody did this for entities like the Holy Roman Empire or the German Confederation?

Well, then have here the German Confederation of Anhalt-Bernburg-Anhalt-Dessau-Anhalt-Köthen-Austria-Baden-Bavaria-Bremen-Brunswick-Frankfurt-Hamburg-Hannover-Hesse(Electorate)-Hesse(Grand Duchy)-Hesse-Homburg-Hohenzollern-Hechingen-Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen-Holstein-Holstein-Oldenburg-Liechtenstein-Lippe-Detmold-Lübeck-Luxembourg-Mecklenburg-Schwerin-Mecklenburg-Strelitz-Nassau-Prussia-Reuss(elder line)-Reuss(junior line)-Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld-Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg-Saxe-Hildburghausen-Saxe-Lauenburg-Saxe-Meiningen-Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach-Saxony-Schaumburg-Lippe-Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt-Schwarzburg-Sondershausen-Waldeck-Pyrmont-Württemberg

And that's only alphabetical, the diplomats also had to list them in descending orders by size (both population and land area separately of course), by noble rankings (kings-duchies-principalities and such) average GDP per capita and so on.

For the Holy Roman Empire nobody even dared to make such a list (although it is rumored to be a punishment among history students)
Ah, the floating city of Nicosia. A wonderful place to visit.

While you're in the area, make sure to see the Turkish capital, Yerevan Ankara.
Canada (and Scandinavia) must have bought up all that African land to fill in Hudson Bay (and the Baltic Sea). Maybe the mapmakers in those countries were just tired of drawing the islands and coastlines.
