    Post Free/premium Vector maps

    This site has pretty much every country as a vector map. You can use them for free (under creative commons [attribution]), or if you want to use them commercially they're pretty cheap.

    The license on that site is NOT a Creative Commons one.

    Ah, I was looking at the paid license, which, rather strangely, seems to be WAY more restrictive than the CC license they provide for free.

    Still, I'd go for Natural Earth instead. It's public domain and maintains its georeferencing and attributes to it can be easily reprojected and re-symbolized.
