    I see you're mapping the surroundings of Sarajevo. Well, it's a good start. For symbols and so forth, I think a few people have already posted elements, but you can also have a look on deviantart for more stuff.

    Well, this thread should be a start

    I would recommend that you use paths for the borders and territories, since that will make it easier to edit them non-destructively.

    I highly recommend taking the time to practice with the pen tool (just google some tutorials). An hour's worth of practice will pay off in tens of hours saved per year trust me!
