Yes - the white region will be split up (as per some of the lists in previous posts); I've yet to draw the borders for The Orient, Middle Asia, Indian Subcontinent, Indochina, Indonesia, etc.)
I think the map is going ot have to get a bit bigger... Zoom in and sacrifice the northern coast of Russia and perhaps give it a slight tilt to accommodate the shape better.

All the more reason to show a smaller portion of them. Leaves more room for the actual playing area
There's not much I can trim off to make things fit better - the real issue is one of width, rather than one of height
I quite like Northern Europe being on the map as a non-playable area - it makes the geography feel more complete (the continent is truly Eurasia). If I were to go for a different map projection, I wouldn't get any more room where I really need it - all that would happen is that Russia would take up even more space!
I'll try and get some more time to produce a finalised draft in due course - the regions will be divided as per previous suggestions, and will still be open to debate
