    De Facto World Map - Free Global Delivery 


    The modern and clean borders that we see on maps are often how we visualise the world, but in reality, these hard lines only compound the idea that the only influential factor in geopolitics is the sovereign nation-state. This print aims to dispel this notion, featuring all the rebels, extremists, separatists and militias that currently hold territory, as well as the de facto state borders, not de jure. A significant amount of these non-state actors are ignored by modern media as they do not play a role in established infrastructures like the UN. This map goes against that notion by illustrating what the world actually looks like in 2021.


    The map features:

    - Countries

    - Militias

    - Terrorist Organisations

    - Insurgencies

    - Rebels

    - Uprisings 

    - Invasions

    - Governmental Opposition

    - Flags

    - Entities that hold territory coloured by level of representation and soveriegnty

    - 2021 Borders


    This map is designed by me after hundreds of hours of research and design while consulting people who live in the region for advice and clarification.
