Think it would’ve worked better if they’d used overlapping (Venn-like) sets instead of trying so hard to force everything into a single scheme.

If you read the decoder-ring (click on the map) it says that

How does that square with Japan at the top?

Still. I applaud the idea and Sweden does seem attractive (they should’ve colour-coded for temperature too). What does this map say about the idea that social-democracy is a step towards tyranny?
