Atlas of True Borders: De Facto Independent Countries on Google Earth

The spoof article featuring Catholicgauze talking about how fake borders on maps are has a point. Many places exist while not on a map. De facto independent countries may show up as part of another country on a map yet be completely different and separate.

I created an atlas that shows de facto independent countries and sovereign base areas in Cyprus that do not appear in Google Earth. Included are Transnistria, Kosovo, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Somaliland, Puntland, Gaza Strip, Palestinian National Authority A Areas.

The file for Google Earth can be downloaded off the Google Earth message board or downloaded directly.
