How to guess the map:

1. Someone posts a map, and you try to guess what the map's supposed to represent
2. Person who guesses correctly gets to post the next map guessed on, or they can declare open floor, and then the thread is left dormant for several months it's first come first serve to post the next map
3. The longer time it takes, the more and "better" hints the person who posts should give
4. Map should be reposted at the top of every page. A default page is 20 posts long

If you're making a map and need guides on all the island countries in the Caribbean Sea and the Indian and Pacific Oceans, here you go:

Here's the blank maps put in every thread, copy-pasted from last thread:

Old threads also link these three sites, so check them out if you want

Ancient threads:
Guess the map
Guess the Map II: witty sequel titles failed me
Guess the Map III: The Map Lover's Paradise
Guess the Map IV: A Thousand Cries for "Hint Please!"
Guess the Map V: A Map is Worth a Thousand Words
Guess the Map VI: Retroactive Cartographer
Guess the Map VII: Bhutan vs. Peru
Guess the Map VIII: Didn't Color the Island Countries
Guess the Map IX: The Richese are no match
Guess the Map X: "Portugal? Going to live it up down ol’ South America, huh, Mikey?"
Guess the Map 11: New map at least once per year
Guess the Map 12: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate Mercator

BTW I, Lohrenswald, would highly reccomend using the first of the three sites above for your custom maps instead of using ms paint or something

Current map is this by me:

not too eager to give hints yet

depends on your outlook

most people I'd guess probably don't really care either way

you'd probably look silly if you were bragging about living in or coming from a non-zero prefecture. Because it would be an odd thing to care about

Let me be more precise: Is the subject matter of biological origin?
(is it something about humans, their demographics, plants or animals?)

I wanted originally to do birthplaces of chinece premiers, but there haven't been to many of them so I decided to look at Japan instead

Grey = no data (some could be my mistake (Czech Rep. for some reason), but some are because the world does not know)
