A Wealth of Nations: The Political Constellations of the World in the Year of the Comet.


Smuggle fiction into reality by putting up a wallmount map of Altera. This world map depicts the political landscape of Altera. The National Geographic aesthetic and professional print quality of this map both stands out as a defining artpiece while also blending in as part of the backdrop. As a wallmount map of this calibre functions as a decorative element first, you'll find that most passerby will miss out on the fictional details and only the most critical and curious onlookers will notice the discrepances between reality and fiction. 

Political World Map of Altera

SKU: 364215375135191
  • Detailed political world map. Along with clearly defined political borders, this map also shows major rivers and topographical relief. Country names and capital cities are depicted through the lens of the Anglophone world, while regionally important cities are depicted with endonyms, transcribed into English from native orthographies. 


    Decorative maps.  Along with the main map, there are four decorative corner maps that depict the climate, biomes, hydrography, and physical geography of Altera, each one methodically prepared to be realistic and consistent with the lore. In addition to the corner maps, there are two map diagrams, one winds and currents, and another for depicting the groupings of landmasses by continents and regions. 


    Print editions. As with mapmaking in the real world, the cartographic representation of Altera is a field of knowledge that is refined and subject to change over time.  Since the first edition, there have been minor corrections, some lore changes, and a handful of new states have been added onto the map. Print quality remains the same. 


    Print size and quality. This map is 44'' x 60'' or 112 x 152.5 cm in size. The map is printed locally to guarantee a superior product. The print is archival quality, on thick uncoated paper to keep with the vintage-style aesthetics, and done with unfading UV ink for fine precision. Even the smallest text at 1.5 mm is rendered crisp and clear. This map looks stunning when framed by dark wood.
