Updated versions of this map are going to be released every other month til the end of time(probably.)

The May 2014 edition of the Map of Stereotypes, first of its kind on such a scale, depicts the world from a more comedic point of view, showcasing the most prevalent western stereotypes about other countries and regions all over the world.

This world map, inspired by a wide variety of historical maps, aims for bringing the best of traditional cartography to a contemporary setting, while reminding us about all the different stereotypes that are still prevalent in our society.
This map is designed in vintage-styled “decorative” theme, and serves as a perfect decoration for any household, office or school.

The poster includes one full large detailed map of the world, 2 major maps showcasing northern and southern polar regions and 6 detailed minimaps: alcohol drinking per capita, cigarettes smoked per capita, average penis size, average breast cup size, average male height, and average human weight. Information panels outside the main map show population by country, countries by size, 75 largest urban areas, countries by cannabis users, oil reserves, global peace index and global happiness index.

The Map of Stereotypes is a grand compendium of all major stereotypes of countries across the world. Being derived from our "Major Decorative" map, it can serve both as an excellent source of geographical knowledge, and as a way to entertain yourself during these long winter nights.
OPINIONS EXPRESSED IN THIS MAP ARE NOT THOSE OF ITS CREATORS. THIS MAP WAS NOT MEANT TO OFFEND ANYBODY IN ANY WAY, IT IS A PARODY OF HOW PEOPLE OFTEN STEREOTYPIZE AND SIMPLICIZE VARIOUS NATIONS, COUNTRIES AND AREAS. Take everything you read there with a grain of salt, most of the things on the map are not in any way true. Though lot of them reflect negative opinions and stereotypes, don't feel offended by this, this is only an artistic concept. Thank you for acknowledgement.

"Political Map of the World Stereotypes" contains little more than 1800 individual stereotypes and popculture references, so there is a lot of things to explore.

Partially inspired by Atlas of Prejudice by Yanko Tsvetkov.

I've discovered your maps through RT (es.rt.com/xFA). Congratulations on your work, although I'd say that the SI (International System of Units) should be used.

What is written over Iran?
