Welcome to the list of frequently occurring map oversights, conveniently abbreviated as a FOMO.

This list includes recurring map errors and also mapmaking errors that had lore mental gymnastics applied.


Aland (Sweden)

  • The error: Shows up as Finnish in older maps, and Swedish in Newer maps (post-GW).
  • Resolution: Sweden keeps it after the GW, given to them by NatReps to appease them and guarantee neutrality.

Azores/Madeira (Portugal)

  • Error: Showed up as Spanish in some maps.
  • Resolution: Irreconcilable error. Just make sure it's Portuguese in new maps.

Southeast Asia

Soenda/Timor borders

  • Error: Sumbawa and Lomboc keeps on changing ownership from Spanish/Dutch.
  • Resolution: Please see the map on the Timor page. Lore justification: Spain offers to purchase the two islands from NL in 1911. It becomes part of Timor.
