I Love Maps: The "Immappancy" Edition

What is "immappancy", you ask? It's ignorance of geography, at least according to Kia Krouse who, apparently, is on a crusade to rid the US of it.  To that end, Krouse presents this amazing map of the continent of Africa the point of which is to show how utterly massive it is, particularly in comparison to the individual countries of the world (as always, click to enlarge).

Make sure to enlarge and read the accompanying commentary.  [ht: Carpe Diem
