65 countries
7 continents

Names for the areas are hard to come up with so I took the liberty of being a bit creative. In theory any "Tom, Dick or Harry" can become senator so I used such names for the seats.
Media and lobbyists are other influences in politics so theyre present as well.

In the Senate they have assigned seats. Why dont you name the seats after who actually occupies them.

It originally had all the seats but it was way too cluttered.


You can see it under the topic "new ideas"

you can get rid of some of the senators as that is only like 1/3 of the seats, just get rid of the ones you dont hear about for playability reasons.

Ok nice input everyone..

Let get to some specifics, as to what needs to be done. On topic that is.

1. lettering. All text in the map needs to be redone. Mainly a question about font size in my opinion.
2. Size. Get the size right. 2 versions as specified in the "how to make a map"
3. Cosmetics. A better backgrond than the white one. Maybe a flag under the bonuses.
4. XML file thingamajigg. Gotta look into how that is done.

Any input from everyone else? Fell free to add to the list.

Definitely look into seeing if users are interested in playing this idea of a map, before going head long into it. Intriguing idea!

I like it, it's a fun, creative idea. I'm assuming that the thick black lines are an uncrossable boundary? Is that correct? Also, you might want to look into moving the legend above/below the map (similar to Hong Kong map) so that you can make it a bit bigger, increasing legibility.

Anyway, it looks good and I like the idea, keep up the work :)

I think you need to close some of the boarders to make it a more playable map.
