    Ulster does have nine counties. My objection is that the border on that map gives it something more like seven and a half.

    Montenegro, Slovenia, San Marino, Luxembourg, Kosovo, Andorra, Monaco, Malta, and Liectenstein aren’t important enough to get their own flags but Gibraltar is?

    Better yet is snagging the design from the Union Jack.

    I'm guessing the issue may be how Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovine, Switzerland, Norway, Russia, and others are not in the EU. Also, the Greeks were such poor sports that they bribes someone to have the Albania flag blot out Macedonia.

    Well, it could be the European Council, who invented the flag, but than Belarus, Gibraltar and the Vatican (and the missing ones) are wrong.

    Also, North Africa is missing.

    Asians bought it up. Apparently to fill in Tokyo Bay and a far bit of the Japanese coast. I am unsure if Hong Kong got what remained of Tasmania to expand themselves to Hainan levels, or if it instead went to help make the Thai Canal now impossible beyond any doubts.

    To be honest though, understandable why maps like this look like this. They can't go into the fullest of detail or it will look weird, and if they go halfway we would still find something to pick out. Of course while the shapes might be acceptable, the coloring is less so. I am guessing that in the case of the United States, Canada, and South America they might be showing the actually distribution area, but that it is still officially named that.

    For WW2, they had an animation about Nazi German conquest. They used the post-1946 borders to represent Germany in 1939. Boy are they lazy with making some maps.

    Yes, but placing Hong Kong on Hainan, Japanese Sakhalin or moving Ireland significantly southwards are not due to a low detail level.

    Speaking of corporate maps have here the next one (though I dunno from which company that one is)

    This is actually the main image at the Wikipedia page on the Caribbean plate, the North Americans plate image also contains the split. Unfortunately, the uploader hasn't been active since 2015. I'm still trying to get help on it.

    See? I don't understand why everyone thinks that the Mesoamericanand the Antilles are the same tectonic plate

    Just stumbled over this at reddit. According to them it was from a school library textbook, so it was really meant to be educational.

    This time I'll only put the thumbnail here, enlarge it at your own risk. In the meantime I'll go and prepare forks and disinfectant, in case any eye-gouging might be needed...
