This map was based primarily on the official Africa map, found here, and is designed to facilitate roleplay in the region. Regional Message board posts, as long as they are specific, can be included in the map to help people visualise and prepare their own RP. Nations can be identified with by their capital; a pin with the picture of a columned building.
Hopefully, this map can help the countries of Africa, and help the region cultivate deeper, and more active roleplay.

Do you consent to participating in wars?
(Correlate where you want things with real-life place names. Otherwise, they will be added to a generic location.)
1) What if the space I want is already occupied?
This map is ultimately first come, first serve, however, as this is an RP map, only countries which actively RP will be included, as part of the rule (1), so there will likely be plenty of space.
2) Why, when I zoom in, does my country not follow the borders properly?
The countries are represented by shapes, which can be manipulated, called polygons. These polygons will never accurately reflect true borders, due to the Coastline Paradox. So it is best to be reasonably accurate, as perfect borders are simply not possible.
3) Does this work on mobile?
It does. When entering the map for the first time on mobile, press the area with "Africa Role Play Map", this will allow you to select or deselect the 'layers'. (This works on my Iphone 6).
