The world according to various nations

These maps have been created by Jason Kottke, who has emphasized the prejudices that exist for other countries around the world from specific nations. These maps of course are not objective and in no case represent what various nations believe about their neighbours. But this project shows how many people see the world and how this also produces misconceptions about other nations, traditions and religions which are alien to them.
Enjoy the maps...
