    Nope, you are all wrong. It revolves around a certain technological ability of a country.

    Is it about quality of water sanitation?

    So, do the grey countries just lack that technological ability the colored ones have in a trichotomised degree?

    Yup, you have right. Red is for countries that have sent a satellite into orbit, blue is for countries that claimed it but can't prove it and green is for countries that work on a first launch now.

    Maybe you should have painted all ESA countries red, and not just France and Britain.

    New map:



    Note that the borders are not utterly accurate, but it should not matter in this map :)

    If you think this has to do with Greece, you are probably on the right track ;)

    The borders in Asia Minor are two different entities, one in Caria (south) one in Ionia (north).

    It doesn't have to do with the Delian League or the Persians :)

    That's the one!

    @Kyriakos: No Persians? Hmm, Ottomans? The last bastions of Greek Orthodoxy, or Greek Autonomy? Something to do with Greeks under the Ottomans?

    Nothing to do with ottomans barbarians :mischief:

    Not places visited by Odysseus either.

    Some more clues:

    -Each region colored has only one of what the map is about, and no other region has any.

    -It is about something pre-medieval.
