How Old is Your Globe?

I enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out when a world map was made by looking at the countries on it. That challenge is easier with a handy chart from Replogle Globes that tells what year nations came into existence or changed names. Metafilter, on the other hand, took the question and made a joke thread, with each joke trying to one-up the one before.
My globe is so old...


My globe is so old it still says "here be dragons." On France.

The chart does not yet have South Sudan listed, but may someday soon. Link

Those commenters are completely missing the point. It doesn't matter how old your globe is. What is important is whether or not it has a lamp inside and lights up when you flip the switch.
