There are two of the same province in Norway (name).
Baffin Island isn't really a island in the map.

This is a great map. Good attention to detail. But the fact that it is only west Europe and North America gives me a feeling in the back of my mind that says "is this supposed to be neo-colonialism". That may just be paranoid me, though.
The number of territories may be a little small for a diplomacy, by some standards. I suggest you could:

  • Draw in some countries (and their regions) in West Africa, and call it "The Northwest Hemisphere", or something similar to it
  • Draw some more European nations, Hungary and Slovakia maybe, and finish up the parts of Sweden and Norway?
  • Divide some European nations further(if space grants). For example: Belgium into Flanders and Wallonia, Netherlands into Holland, Zeeland, and Frisia. Austria into Styria, Tyrol, and Lower Austria. England into East Anglia, Cornwall, The Midlands, Yorkshire, and Northern England. Ireland into Leinster, Connaught, Munster.
  • Also divide up central American nations into 2 or 3 main regions. This may be a bit hard, since they commonly are not divided into that number. If you can only come up with things like "North Nicaragua" and "South Nicaragua", don't do it.
  • Draw some island chains. Maybe a territory for the Leeward Antilles, Windward Antilles, and the Virgin Islands.

If you want to avoid using North/South X, simply use the largest city in the area. I use that method all the time.

Didn't look in too much depth yet, but you've got a number of misspellings -- not sure how much of a problem that is for maps to get accepted or whatever happens with them, but I noticed several. I can help you out with some of that, though I'll admit I'm not too knowledgeable with some parts of Europe.

What you've got listed as "Canarias Islands" is actually the Balearic Islands (or if you want just the most major island there, Majorca/Mallorca) -- the Canary Islands/Islas Canarias are in reality where you have Cabo Verde on your map. Cabo Verde is a decent amount further south along the African coast.

It is a little odd that you cut off Norway, Sweden, and Poland in basically the middle of their respective countries.

I'll admit I know approximately nothing about diplomacy maps, so I'll have to assume you know what you're doing on that front, but I did just happen to notice some issues with the map itself. Looks like a good one though!
