Hmmmm... Maybe you could use some less countries... Calm down, only joking. :lol:

Some minor suggestions:
1) Shouldnt the circles be gray like the large map ones?
2) Haiti circle should be in the original position.
3) Move some names. I recommend: Mexico City name (down and right). Arizona and Nevada (both names and circles up). New Mexico (name and circle a bit left).
4) Correct those minor problems in some borders if possible, mainly Yukon, NW territory and Michigan.

Well, really there is no way to solve the Kansas Nebraska thing, unless you use abreviations, that is a worse thing, I believe. Good job.

I havn't changed the colors of the circles, maybe you're looking at one of the many pics that aren't the final one?

Could you clarify you're 4th point? thanks

then it wouldnt look like they are covering most of the map

if it's not too late it might be possible to eliminate the circles altogether, like they did with the Canada map.

i'm from Washington, so adding Washington as a territory would be great! U could split oregon in two and use the Columbia river as an impassable border. Just an idea
