Egypt would be #1 on a historical frog population map.
Bolivia had entered the part of the chaco always having been considered part of paraguay, and paraguay fought a war to get it back
I am looking at the map, and with India, South Africa, Indonesia and Mexico, and also lots of Southern America, I'm somehow thinking something colonization related, but whole of Europe doesn't make sense then. Although most marked countries there did have colonies or extraterritorial settlements (although... not sure about Hungary).
Does it have something to do with war participation?
Hungary had a war against Romania, but you don't see Romania being in color.
British East India Company being separate from Britain is interesting.
Exports of hot spicy food?
Maybe some kind of embargo?
It's not like many would be buying stuff from soviet Russia at the start of the 20s.
bolivia did have an army, what they lacked were competent officers
Why did Argentina help Paraguay?
It is related to that time period. The colors are not related to the League of Nations.
The source I used did not have data for the grey countries. Most of those places would probably have some color if I looked for other sources.
While the topic is not explicitly about war or colonization, it is related to both.
The data I used treated the different countries that made up the empires individually. So all the territories like India, Indonesia, South Africa, Philippines, etc are on their own.
No, it's not exports.
It is not related or to about the Russian revolution (though I'm sure the Russian revolution affected this, as it probably affected everything in Russia).
is it like starvation
Disuninterestedly of course:
It is like starvation.
So, is it this?
If so, @Lohrenswald should have it - his post pretty much revealed the answer.
Yes, it was death rates from the spanish flu.
Well don't be so grim about it, you didn't die.
@Lohrenswald you can post the new map if you want to
death rate from plague and starvation are pretty different though
I have a map if nobody wants to post
I suppose you can, and Loh can get primacy if no one gets a new map.
Sorry, I haven't checked in the past few days.
Gonna say open floor, because I probably have to be rather busy. I might post one, but don't count on it
edit : map too small in scale , removed .
