Perceived geogrpahy

Following up on the theme of maps charting perceived geography, Frank Jacob's "Strange Maps" blog on bigthink.com recently ran a series of European maps with countries labeled from different perspectives, mostly national. (Fair warning: many, if not all, of the "perspectives" on the maps fall well within the realm of stereotyping and name calling, which is not behavior I endorse.) I've copied just the "U.S. Perspective" map below, but the whole series is quite extensive, and most of the rest are from various European perspectives.
