>>1221403>But it's not a accurate division of population density, or geographic size, or cultural boundaries,
Because that would be absolutely impossible to do. There's no common metric you could possibly use. Such a map would be utterly subjective and arbitrary. Like, Silesia for example, a historical region, is divided between Poland, Germany, and the Czech Republic today and in Germany it overlaps with the historical region of Lusatia which is further divided into Upper and Lower Lusatia. So what are you gonna do about it? Siberia is huge in terms of area but barely populated. How are you gonna draw the borders there?
The map uses administrative subdivisions because it's, while not flawless, the best common denominator.>>1221404> By the look of this map, each region in fucking Thailand is so drastically different that it deserves recognition
They deserve recognition on the map because they are Thailand's first administrative subdivions. I know you're mad because >muh mighty states are being compared with tiny municipalities of bumfucknowhere USA STRONG
but it really is that simple.
