Nice..but territories in Oceana are uneven from rest of the world.
Other than that everything looks perfectly fine.

Looks cool. Why the Scandinavia bonus? That isn't a country or continent, seems out of place. If you want to do extra little ones like that, I would suggest adding ones for former countries (USSR, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, etc).

Did you use the Detailed World Map template for this? Greenland, China, Russia,Australia and other countries have the same look as in the detailed one.

Good effort. One question:

Will you change the name of the map if someone makes a bigger one?

Well maybe it should be changed before it's published then, in case someone does one day make a bigger one.

Nice map going.
I agree with you that some islands shouldn't be a territory.
Note that, there is European part of Russia to Ural mountains that you include in Asia bonus but it should be in European bonus; 4 bonus, northwestern, southwestern Russia, Perm and Moscow area.
Why Ecuador is connected with Hawaii?
If you could include some super bonuses which isn't countries then you should include Middle East.

For the last time:
Hawaii isn't part of North America! It is part of Oceania!

Otherwise a good map, but it has a few missing connections:
Orenburg - Saratov (Perm Area, Russia)
Afghanistan - Qinjiang (China)
Also, Azerbaijan should connect to Turkey, the border is displayed incorrectly.

"Hawaii isn't part of North America! It is part of Oceania!"

What? Why would it be part of a continent with Australia? Hawaii is in North America, period. You obviously need to brush up on your geography.

Also, Central America is part of North America as well. The Carribean should be part of North America.

Also, the line between Tanzania and Madagascar points to the wrong territory if you zoom in.

Should probably have a connection line between the two parts of New Zeland too.

You are arguing two different things.
Hawaii is part of the US.
It is also part of the Oceania tectonic plate.

Or do you think French Guiana (borders Brazil) is part of Europe since it is a French overseas region?

@ChrisCMU

It think you need to understand the differences between geographic borders, and geopolitical borders.

Although Hawaii is a US state, it is not part of the continent of North America. It is part of the Polynesian group of islands, which are considered to be within Oceania.

Although Central America is within the continent of North America, the term Central America is used to describe countries from Guatemala to Panama. North America is more commonly used to describe just Canada, US and Mexico.

Richard said it correctly.
But North america includes central America too, as Chris stated.
Why do so many people think North America is equal to US+Greenland+Canada+Mexico??

So was India part of Europe when the UK controlled it?

Being part of the North American Continent, and being in the United States of America are not the same thing.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia:

"Hawaii is the only state of the United States that is not geographically located in North America, grows coffee, is completely surrounded by water, is entirely an archipelago, has royal palaces, and does not have a straight line in its state boundary."

But on topic:

Is this going to be an updated version of your map, or an entirely different one?

It looks very nice, but the differences in state borders looks funny. The straight lines in Africa compared to the natural borders in Asia, for example.

(sorry for the double post)
In Dutch there are two different words for what is called continent in English: continent, and "werelddeel", translated as "worldpart". The continents are Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, Antarctica and **Australia**. The "worldparts" are Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, Antarctica and **Oceania**. There are many other definitions of worldparts, sometimes Central America is considered separate from North America, and sometimes Antarctica isn't even mentioned. That's because worldparts are more cultural/politically based divisions, rather than geological. Other distinctions include Greenland and sometimes Israel as part of Europe (not French Guyana) and indeed, Hawaii as part of North America.
Also, worldparts include islands that are not on the actual Continental shelf (cyan in [this](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/93/Elevation.jpg) image), such as Iceland.
Iceland geologically belongs to both North America and Europe, it literally on the edge of the two. Also, New Zealand is not part of the continent Australia, but it is of the worldpart Oceania, and so are Micronesia, Polynesia, Melanesia and partly Indonesia. And, Europe and Asia are often merged into Eurasia, and sometimes even Eurofrasia. (Europe+Africa+Asia)

So far the Dutch definitions. It looks like you are arguing about whether to use continents or worldparts, or a combination of both.
