Tuesday Map: The world rearranged by population | FP Passport

An interesting thought experiment or a geopolitics nerd with too much time on their hands?

Either way, consider some of the potential territorial conflicts and trading blocs that would emerge…assuming today’s politics/society/culture were used. My personal favorites: China & Indonesia having their own ‘Zhenbao Island incident’. Spain, Venezuela (in) and Argentina (near) the Horn of Africa.

Also interesting: Israel just moves northwest to the Greek Islands. Imagine the implications if Hellenism had won the day a few thousand years ago…aside from not celebrating Hanukkah. And “Palestine” moves to the Adriatic coast (currently occupied by Croatia) Better geography for Palestinians than Gaza…but then, there’s that whole ‘Muslims in Europe’ thing that’s been going so well for the past 400 years and all.
