No, I can see difference just fine, but I wonder if you do not like that map because a certain country is missing

Approximately there are 6,000 languages in the world. Most languages have less than 1,000 speakers. In a few years, linguists speculate, the majority of languages in the world will be extinct due to increasing globalization and neo-Imperialism.

Since when did Groot-Nederland include Wallonia?

This is Heel-Nederland, not Groot-Nederland.

Groot-Nederland wasn't ambitious enough.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I didn't realize that Ohio had so few trees.  Yet another reason to dislike them.

You've obviously never been to Ohio.  Western half is mostly farmland (used to have more forests), Eastern half is wooded; Cleveland was nicknamed "Forest City" for its integration of trees and parks into the urban landscape. 

Indiana is another story...

Just a map someone did on deviantart of what the borders of the countries of the world might look like 50 years from now. It wasn't meant to be a realistic guess, just a bit of fun.

Good financial environment, too.  Just got an e-mail from a Nigerian businessman friend of mine who needs my help.  I don't have an MBA, but I can get several million dollars just by sending some personal info!  Guess I'm moving to Africa!
