    Well I haven't started a new thread - Civ'ed should link this thread in the last post of previous thread.

    But he is "not a nice man" so he didn't. :p

    That's certainly a bad map, if only because it's so small.

    Kentucky being grouped in with South Western looks way wrong.

    Maybe it's because I'm British, but I find cultural maps of "Greater X" to be terribly boring. After all, we already did "Greater Britain" in real life.

    Historical? Historically Albanians were just a rather small mountainous tribe of highlanders, as I have read. They vastly expanded their territory and vastly increased their numbers relatively recently (during the last several centuries), thanks to being the "favourite peoples" of the Ottoman Empire:

    Usefull to note that the Greek minority zone in Albania is recognised by international treaties (eg Versailles and Lausanne).

    The area briefly was an autonomous republic ('Northern Epirus') and before that had been controlled by the Greek army in the first Balkan war, but the 'great powers' gave the ultimatum that if the area was not ceded to the newly created 'Albania' the west aegean islands would likely not be recognised as part of Greece following the war.

    The autonomous republic ended with 1922 (treaty of Lausanne), as did the Pontic republic, and the treaty of Sevres.

    Macedonian Slavs near Salonica in 1915 (map from book: "The new world problems in political geography" by Isaiah Bowman, New York 1921):

    The book is available online (links below) - there are 215 maps in this book (very interesting):

    https://archive.org/details/newworldproblems00bowmuoft

    https://archive.org/details/newworldproblem01bowmgoog



    Fourth Edition from 1928 had even more maps - 257:

    Edit:

    Contents of the 1921 Edition of Bowman's book (the map of the region of Salonika I posted above is on page 317):

    And here Atlas of Mexico:

    ^Good that there is 1,5 lines about an 'atlas of mexico' or else one might have thought you were not posting 'altered maps' but something tied to a theme :p

    Map of countries where people have died so far this year. Red means 0, blue means less than 0 and white means any number over 0
