You Can't Buy an Accurate Map

A few months ago, we purchased a really nice laminated copy of
National Geographic's Map of The World to place on our wall. Little
did we know then that it would be obsolete so quickly. At this
moment, you can't buy an accurate World Map...anywhere! Even
Google doesn't show South Sudan on either Google Maps or
the very popular Google Earth. Not yet at least. That's because
South Sudan gained their independence this weekend and map
makers haven't caught up yet. There are now (by most sources)
196 countries in the world. Too bad most maps still show only 195.
