Alternate Reality/Future Earth Political Map
I'm assuming this is the correct place for this post. I've been working on a sci-fi setting with nations a bit different from what they are today, and find myself curious how one might go about creating political maps involving Earth with the least pain. I've thought about using some of Wikipedia's .svg files, but it seems there is no way to get rid of existing borders much less place new ones. I'd do it by hand, but I dread trying to trace along coastlines. So, any ideas or tips?
