Good guerilla marketing! But they took away Iceland too without giving them something like the default currency...

As if Bjoerk never existed!

It's just supposed to be a regional map; if you look at the actual links, it has US, non US americas, and Europe. It's not really a big deal! Was the UK ever there?

Caleb, it's at least the wrong interface metaphor. Same goes for using a country-flag for a language choice. Look at this page using the US flag to switch to English:

We regret the omission, however we were ordered to remove certain countries from our map, and we simply forgot to include the standard disclaimer:

"Certain countries have been eliminated to comply with lawful Chinese foreign and domestic policy."
