This blog is more for fun than anything.  Here are 18 maps showing different ways the world breaks down.  If you ever wondered in what countries people drive on the left side of the road, where to get Big Macs, who uses the metric system, or even how many countries England has invaded (or, to make it easier, how many they haven’t), then you will get a kick out of this blog.  For me, the map showing how many rivers feed into the Mississippi is a little mind blowing. Enjoy!

1. This map shows the world divided into 7 sections, each color representing 1 billion people.

2.  This map shows (in white) where 98% of Australia’s entire population lives.

3.  It may not come as a surprise, but more people live inside the circle than outside of it.

4.  This map shows what is on the other side of the world from where you’re standing.  Its mostly water.

5.  Apparently, you can’t get Big Macs everywhere.  This map shows (in red) countries with McDonald’s.

6.  This map shows the countries (in blue) where people drive on the left side of the road.

7.  This map shows countries (in white) that England has never invaded.  There are only 22 IN THE WORLD!

8.  The line on this map shows all of the world’s Internet connections in 1969.

9.  This map shows the countries that heavily restricted Internet access in 2013.

10.  This map shows the countries that were Communist at one point in time.

11.  This map shows (in red) the countries that don’t use the metric system.

12.  This map shows (in blue) places where Google street view is available.

13.  This map shows (in green) all the landlocked countries of the world.

14.  And this is what the world would look like if all the countries with coast lines sank.

15.  This is a map of the all the rivers in the United States.

16.  And these are all the rivers that feed into the Mississippi River.

17.  This is a map of the highest paid public employees in the U.S. by state (quite telling as to what our ‘priorities’ are).

18.  This map shows how much space the United States would occupy on the moon.
