This map shows the world divided into seven sections (each with a distinct color) each section containing 1 billion people:




This map shows (in white) where 98 percent of Australia's entire population lives:




It may not come as a surprise, but more people live inside the highlighted circle on this map, than outside of it:




This map shows what is on the other side of the world from where you're standing. For the most part, it's water:




Countries (in red) that have McDonald's:




This map shows the countries (in blue) where people drive on the left side of the road:




This map shows countries (in white) that England has never invaded (22, in the whole world):




The line on this map shows all of the world's Internet connections...in 1969:




This map shows the countries that heavily restricted Internet access in 2013:




This map shows (in red) countries that were all Communist at one point in time (and maybe, arguably, still are to an extent):




This map shows (in red) the countries that don't use the metric system (because we didn't get to THE MOON USIN' NO DAMN CENTIMETERS, SON):




This map shows (in blue) places where Google street view is available:




This map shows (in green) all the landlocked countries of the world:




And this is what the world would look like if all the countries with coast lines sank:




This is a map of the all the rivers in the United States:




And these are all the rivers that feed into the Mississippi River:




This is a map of who the highest-paid public employees are in  the U.S.:




This map shows how much space the United States would occupy on the moon:
