Perhaps I should be more specific.
1. I have a minor color vision impediment, and sometimes it's hard to tell if I'm over or under-doing the color gradients. Any suggestions for bringing out or toning down areas?
2. The scale. Would it be better to keep it semi-transparent like it is, or have it be more of a physical object like the compass rose?
3. The regional borders. The technique I use is subtle enough for me, but it seems a bit sloppy to me. Any suggestions for marking territorial boundaries better?
4. Balancing. Are there any elements that seem to stand out too much, or not enough?
