This map was a request by The_Lady_Tear (original request here), who asked for a map depicting an archetypical campaign setting.
In our discussions, we decided to have each country take on iconic shapes to depict its theme (i.e., a land of serpents which took on the form of a snake).
The map was done in Gimp, with the exception of the labels which were done in Photoshop, then brought over to Gimp for polish.
It might be my eyes playing tricks on me... but it appears that the land labeled "Sin" is shaped like the intersection of the traditional symbol for "male" and "female" (the circle with the the arrow point up and right and the circle with the cross dropped below it). I guess this suggests that the land of "Sin" is a land of, shall we say, biblical "knowing" and fornication?

I think that came out very well. You really carried the iconic theme well from concept to completion and made one heck of a fun looking map to adventure on.
Thank you everyone!
Yes Karro, that's exactly what it's trying to convey, in the most non-R-rated way I could think of
Arrows don't always point north.
Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.
This map was a blast to look over and figure out the terrains.
