    You're missing Finland in the Eurozone. Also doesn't Andorra use euroes unofficially? And Kosovo but it's not even shown on the map.

    Just a question (to everyone here), are we the only ones that call the british pound, sterling lira ? Just like the turkish lira/italian lira/etc.

    EDIT: @ekolite: anti-communism !

    Heretic Cata: No, the French call it a livre except, as my old French teacher told me, the French community in London, who, rather amusingly, say, un quid.

    Ekolite: % of schools that teach English or something like that?

    Probably pretty widespread since Pound is, litterally, referring to the unit of measure many countries likely refer to it by the name of the unit of measure in their country. In fact the Lira, Livre and other currency units were identical to the pound historically, all being defined as a pound of silver.
    Plus the symbol is still based on the latin Libra and the Lebanese and Syrian Pounds are called Lira apparently.

    Nope. It's not a political or linguistical map.
