The stereotype maps label nations and geographical regions by the stereotypes through which they are perceived by the map’s primary subject. The labels he uses touch on everything from political concerns, like the development of the European Union, to cultural stereotypes, like the Hellenocentric view that Greece gave Europe its culture. The U.S.A’s map labels Russia as a communist stronghold, while Britain’s map labels Ireland as an island full of rascals.

Possibly the best part about the maps is that the labels pull no punches. You’ll get a good laugh from some of the funnier maps and labels, like the map of the world according to Silvio Berlusconi, in which the nations are labeled by the type of women one can find there.

Designer Yanko Tsvetkov, the man behind alphadesigner.com, has received international acclaim for his clever maps, which have garnered millions of views. His maps are worth looking at no matter where you’re from. You might learn a thing or two.
