apologies if repost but turkish history map:
I guess it's faster to list what the map has correct: the shape and size of Switzerland is more or less correct and they almost got it placed at the correct location.
Unrelated, some map from Thailand:
It's a Shrinking Lithuania!
Someone call @Augenis!
I see Poland decided to take the small Polish minority around Kėdainiai through the other side.

What's just as weird is that this specifically wrong basemap keeps popping up everywhere. People seem to keep using it without noticing the most blatant errors.
Except for us
