Fool's World Map- Did you know Spain is in South America?

http://www.zen-style.com/#map

From the author:

This was a beginning to think that it might be fun to gather those mixed up recognitions of countries and visualize it as a world map imagined by the fools in the world.

First, the countries are roughly allocated. From now on, countries will be added based on participants' comments. If you "don't know" or "don't even care" about the countries that are added, please submit a comment such as "Huh?" .

If there're many comments or questions like that, relevant country will be downsized or deleted. To the contrary, territory of relevant country will be moved or enlarged if there are comments like "more to the right", "larger". At the same time, comments about positional information of any landmark such as a pyramid of Egypt is appreciated.

I don't get it.

Edit: Oh no I get it, an excuse to make fun of stupid Americans.

Wow.. I didn't realize I'm surrounded by the great lakes of New York and that I am that close to Las Vegas and Neverland. Man, that Michael Jackson must be rich if neverland covers that much land.

Canada sure lost some land mass and there is a place called USA Empire?

I would cut Alaska from where it is and put it next to Hawaii, south of Baja California (as it seems to always be located on US maps).

Reminds me of the famous Saul Steinberg illustration:

I once knew someone who thought Iceland (or maybe it was Greenland) was Denmark, because we had a map at school that had (Denmark) in brackets under it, I guess because it was/is(?) Danish territory.

He updated the map on the 11th.


I prefer this map though:




I want to go to Scotchland.

This would be funny if the guy wasn't so serious about making a map wrong.

I'm glad that he put New Mexico where it belongs, with Mexico. I didn't know that it was an island though.

It's supprising how many people think that it's one of the United States.

Seriously though, he does have the Incan empire roughly where it was 500 or so years ago. It didn't extend so far north, but other than that it's pretty close.

I never heard Kenya doesn't have rhinos. (They also have giraffes and zebras.) But it's implied that Norway has neither tigers nor lions.

How did he go about putting things where they are? I'm missing a lot of the humor here. Although, I do like the Map According to America. That was funny.
