Weekend Moment of Zen 1-5-13

A Laconic History of the World from MapHugger
The creator explains:
This map was produced by running all the various countries’ “History of _____” Wikipedia article through a word cloud, then writing out the most common word to fit into the country’s boundary. The result is thousands of years of human history oversimplified into 100-some words.
Reader's guide here.

Apparently Pakistan (country) is actually India (word).
