[1st Map] The Repubblica e Cantone Ticino is since 1803 one of the 26 cantons of Switzerland. It is one of the two cantons where italian is the official language. Bellinzona is the capital and Lugano is the largest city. The map depicts the canton and how it looked in 1995, before the beginning of the merging process that reduced the number of municipalities from 245 to 130.
First off I really dislike any bonus that is defaulted to zero, second I hate territories that are "one" territory but not connected in a single land mass, third your territories range of size in inconsistent which just makes it difficult to have to zoom in and out and figure where are my units truly going. not a fun map for me.
In the new versions the zero bonus are removed. For the other points you mentioned, I tried to make this map as similar as possible to the real political divisions, therefore I won't make changes. Hope you can still enjoy it
