Hmm, how did I miss this thread? Must be because of my holiday!

Well, congrats all!

No, some countries have two capital cities!

Or there are some really small countries with capitals where only the capital can be seen. I particularly like the capital of the Mediterranean sea shown out in the water.

Actually the red splotch at the southwest of the map is Portugal (the closest European country to the USA).

The blue spots represent the states of Andorra, Monaco, Liechtenstein, the Vatican, and San Marino.

The map also spots Amsterdam (the official capital) and The Hague (the capital de facto) in the Netherlands.

What seams to be the capital of the Mediterranean sea, is actually Valletta, the capital of Malta.

The blue spot for the Vatican should be inside the white spot for Rome.

The white spot for Valletta should be a blue spot (I'm assuming blue spots are for countries smaller that the spot of the capital).

The two white spots in Montenegro (East of Rome and Vatican) are apparently Podgorica (the capital city) and Cetinje (the former royal capital), but I don't know Cetinje has any important political function today, contrary to The Hague in the Netherlands.

Thank you, I do know my geography of Europe. Except maybe for those "new" countries in Eastern Europe (it was sooooo much easier when I went to school. It looks like we got twice as much countries in Europe now as we had back in the '80's... But, beside the fact that the capital of the Netherlands is only Amsterdam (and I never learned anything to the contrary, except that the the center of government isn't in our capital but in the Hague), I was more thinking about Montenegro (thanks Jelby for pointing out the name, my knowledge of those new Eastern European countries is horrible!). That country is not listed as a country where the center of government isn't in the capital city.

The only problem with the map is that it has a bunch of squiggly lines on it when, in reality, we know that Mobilita Republica has no such pointless geographical lines of segregation.
