Looks great. I always love your AH maps.

On the inset your character for "hua" isn't showing up for some reason...just have a box with an "x" in it. And...I want Pinyin instead of that Wade-Giles junk! :) Just kidding, really, but that form of Romanization is *really* a poor guide to pronounciation. In Pinyin it would read "Zhonghua Guomin Gongheguo", which is much closer to the way it would sound in Mandarin (even with a Taiwanese accent). Niggly linguistic bits that...and Wade-Giles probably more closely matches the feel you were going for anyway so I have no official complaint.

Your AH maps are just the best. You're just a mapping machine!

Thanks, I hadn't noted this.

Thank you.

I completely forgot Afghanistan on this map, corrected maps are in the first post.
