Return of Horrible Educational Maps

Finland? There is no Finland. You have been mistaken, as the next webfind proves:

In general, I don't think a maps showing irredentist claims necessarily count as Horrible maps, but I don't think I've ever seen one with Sakalin being Japanese, Alaska being Russian *and* Newfoundland being British (but giving Labrador in its entirety to Quebec). Also, though Russia wanted Finland, not to cause it to stop existing. (Similarly for Libya's claims to Sicily)

Maybe they just don't grow any tobacco in Alaska or Newfoundland? (My first thought on seeing that map was "They grow tobacco in Canada?!" - but apparently they do). But that would imply tobacco farms on Sakhalin and while I've found references to "production of tobacco products" ... yeah.
 
Speaking of the nordic countries someone found (or made) in the Spraypaint program a world map with a HUGE Scandinavia (larger than North America for example)

Don't think it was made as educational but I don't know where else to put this one

No worries, if you need educational maps then have the next one from reddit:

What makes it even worse is that the redditor who posted it said that it was from a schoolbook of the early 2000s and supposed to show the current world. Although mind you, with those borders that map can't really be pinpointed to any specific date.

Super Peru, Space Filling West Africa, even bigger USSR, separate Papua and New Guinea, independent British Cameroons, big Oman, and strange Ethiopian borders...

It's clearly from before the Finland-USSR Winter War of 1940, as Finland still has a northern coast.
No, wait, it's clearly from after 1949/1953, since there's both West and East Germany and both North and South Korea.
No, wait, it's clearly from before 1922, as there's no internal Irish border.
No, wait, uhh, help, ... no, I give up.

And where's Cyprus?

With the exception of the line dividing China from the USSR in Western China and the Southern border of Ethiopia reaching the sea, I think every border on there was used at some point in the 20th century. Just lots of other missing borders.

It is obviously during the part of the 20th century when Canada controlled all of the shore of Lake Ontario.
