A Square of Merged Countries #1

Oh no! An evil demon has torn countries off the map of the world, changed their size, rotated them, and smashed them all together. Can you name the countries that appear in the map of this new archipelago?

I realized that there were a lot of countries that we hidden "behind" other countries making them nearly impossible to guess. I spaced the countries out more, so it's more of an archipelago than an island chain now.

I agree with arp, it was better before. Now it is just random countries, while before the appeal was they joined together into a square, there might ve been a féw countries that were missing some km² but in all cases but one it was negligible and/or of no consequence.

like when someone takes a picture of a group of friends/family standing side by side, most likely they will overlap a bit at the arms and shoulders. It is not like suddenly you don't recognise them anymore and the picture is unacceptable and people should spread out (current distancing situation not taken into account ;) )

If you are on a chromebook just press control +shift+ reload and your screen will turn 90 degrees and it helps so much.

Ps i had only ecuador left and i then saw the galapagos and that was a big hint.

Thank you, these are fun.

IMO the perimeters are pretty inaccurate. Specifically:

Saudi Arabia

Algeria

ROK

Belarus

Yemen

Switzerland?

Tanzania?

Ecuador?

Finland?

It feels like some have been stretched/skewed (yemen, peru?, saudi, finland) and others have lost some detail/identifying marks to their perimeters.

I assume that's something you have no control over. And everyone probably memorizes some slightly different shapes anyway.
