"List Of Countries" World Map

Finishing Option
    • This unique world map poster features all the countries of the world from biggest to smallest. Yes, we listed 196 countries of the world by their size! Why? The world (map) is mostly portrayed in one way - the Mercator projection way. Which means the sizes of the countries are skewed. But that’s not the only way. To change your perspective and open your mind, take a look at the world in a new and organised way. The actual relative sizes of countries. All you perfectionists out there, you are welcome.

      A travel map with a twist of knowledge. How fast can you find your own country from that list? Do you know your neighbours by heart? What’s the smallest country in the world? Get all the answers. Get 'em now. We included the names of the countries and capitals there too, to make things a little easier for you. We also added tiny sticker dots, so you can mark all of your travels down on the poster.

      Perfect gift for travellers & design lovers! Take the word from our buyers: "For a map nerd like me, this is a whole new way of looking at countries. I love it. The idea and design are so simple, clear and clean. It’s perfect.” "It was a gift for a friend who loved it very much.

    • Q: What's special about this world map poster?
      A: On this poster all the countries are listed by area, from biggest to smallest. This way you can see the relative size of each country compared to another. Most world maps use Mercator Projection, but it distorts the size of countries as the latitude increases from the Equator to the poles. Making landmasses near the North and South Pole such as Greenland and Antarctica appear much larger than they actually are, relative to landmasses near the equator such as Central Africa. No distortions on List of Countries poster, only true sizes!

      Q: How many countries are in the world?
      A: Unfortunately, there isn't one correct answer. Maps and country systems are political, so it can vary depending on your views and where you come from. In this list, we have included 193 members of the UN, the two UN observers (Palestine and Vatican City), and Kosovo to equal 196 countries (and their respective capital cities).

      Q: Why is there no Greenland?
      A: We have listed all the countries with their mainland only. Greenland belongs to Denmark and we decided to keep the list as clear as possible, so we took the total area of countries with their oversea territories which were close to the mainland and listed these from biggest to smallest.Beside Greenland we have excluded Antarctica, Western Sahara and some other territories belonging to certain countries, but scattered around the world. Antarctica isn’t a country and Western Sahara is disputed territory with no clear political status. If we added all of them then this poster would have to be several times bigger!

      Q: Why is there no Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland?
      A: Because Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland are not entirely independent countries but are four somewhat autonomous regions which are part of the country known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or just United Kingdom for short. Everything revolving around countries and maps is always a bit complicated and it’s difficult to have one correct answer that will satisfy everyone. Which is why there will always be differences of opinions, but we’ve decided to go with this option regarding the UK.

      Q: Why is there no Hawaii?
      A: Because it’s just so far away from the mainland, we decided not to distort the map to fit it in and didn’t depict it on this List of Countries poster.

My girlfriend loved it

Gave this to my girlfriend with wanderlust. She had a scratch map before but it got all dried out and turned ugly.

She loved it. And I loved her reaction. ;-)

Ps: I also like how you guys take care of the packaging

Hey Raoul! Congrats, you just won the best boyfriend award! It makes us r-e-a-l-l-y happy that your girlfriend loves our List of Countries map. Wishing you both lots of great adventures to come!

List of Countries

I really love this poster! It looks amazing and is definitely more interesting than the common world maps. My next poster might be the "Capitals of the World", but i would also love to have a poster with all Capitals of Europe! Maybe you could fulfill my wish? :)

We love our new Poster! It is just nice and simple and the quality of the paper is good. The delivery to Germany was very quick. Thank you!

BECAUSE SIZE MATTERS.

We listed 196 countries of the world by their area from biggest to smallest. Why? To shake things up. The world (map) is mostly portrayed in one way - the Mercator projection way. Which means the sizes of the countries are skewed. But that’s not the o-n-l-y way. To change your perspective and open your mind, take a look at the world in a new and organised way. All you perfectionists out there, you are welcome.

A TRAVEL POSTER WITH A TWIST OF KNOWLEDGE.

How fast can you find your own country from that list? Do you know your neighbours by heart? What’s the smallest country in the world? Get all the answers. Get 'em now. We included the names of the countries and capitals there too, to make things a little easier for you.
 
NB! We also added tiny sticker dots, so you can mark all of your travels down on the poster.

IT LOOKS GOOD ON YOUR WALL.

It’s eye-catching. It’s unique. And it’s black and white. Kind of the perfect combination, don’t you think? And trust us, it never gets boring. This detailed infographic poster gives you something new to discover every single day. No joke.

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS.

Details matter to us. Maybe even too much. That’s why we’ve used the nicest matte and silky sustainably sourced paper. Wrapped the poster in a black silk paper and rolled in a 100% recycled cardboard tube. So that getting the poster feels like a fine present. Nice, huh.
