Also, there are only borders in the Americas.
And "Falkland Islands (UK)" is marked, but not UK itself.
oh my god you're right
That was their 'Sphere of influence', pre-Soviet & then WW2, agreed with Britain (who got the south, likewise), with [but not in WW2?] a thin &v V-shaped buffer-zone where -- supposedly -- neither would intrude.Pretty sure USSR never had Northern Iran. Just occupied it.
Also they even failed at using a modern map, since Serbia and Montenegro are united here
Also, speaking of Monty, the lists of countries on each side are woefully incomplete. Ottomans especially are a glaring absence.
How did they get Germany and Poland that mixed up?
Because it’s just a modern map with nations colored in as they are today. “Oh, here is Austria… and here is Hungary… I know there was a nation called Austria-Hungary… it must have just been these together!” It’s what happens when you believe you’re at the “end of history.”How did they get Germany and Poland that mixed up?
ITTL, the partitions went differently
Also, they seem to have ignored any colonial territory (North Africa, Malta, Rhodes, Cyprus).
Speaking of colonies the following one is actually quite good (heck, they even mention themselves that the map is not to exact scale but even with that they still do a decent enough job)
They only got a minor hiccup in South Sudan/Uganda/Rwanda (and Burundi is suspiciously where Lake Victoria should have been)
But still compared to many other maps in this thread this is how a good educational map should be (and kudos to the teacher or whoever thought that up)
