Looks like the font in the name is staying (47% were in favour of changing it, less than half).

I wont be working on this for about a month, will be busy in rl.

The font of the title IS ridiculous. Do a poll about it, and you will probably change it.

i have no problems with all the pradeshes, i like original names. but if you decide to change them, just get rid of pradesh and call them uttar, andhra, madhya, etc.

That really doesn't work. The pradesh is part of the name. It would be a bit the calling the U.S.A. United America because you didn't have room for states. You call it USA and similarly, UP, AP, MP etc.

That imaginary territory is part of West Bengal, the one way arrow sorta split it. Will fix.

Edit coming soon. Working on getting rid of the jaggedness is in the country borders, expanding the size of the small countries and getting better uncrossables (nobody cares about accuracy of uncrossables do they?)

Really, this map is not attractive to many people, by the way...
About the font, I would go with Lakshadweep or Madhya.
