The Upside Down World Map Changes Global Directions

Part of the Terra Nova series, the Upside Down World Map flips the world on its head.

The map doesn't simply just write everything in reverse or upside down. In fact, only the image of the classic world map, found in many classrooms around the globe, has been flipped but the words remain right side up. That means that all of a sudden, the South Pole has become the North Pole and America is on top of Canada. Countries like Brazil and Australia are in the northern hemisphere, while Russia is in the southern hemisphere and North America is now South America. Confused yet?
