Thanks for visiting PoliAtlas.
The aim of PoliAtlas is to look at maps and understand why they are drawn a certain way, and to understand what they tell us about history and contemporary politics. This site will hopefully shed some light on the meeting point between geography and politics, otherwise known as geopolitics. I hope to write about individual countries, territorial disputes and ongoing geopolitical situations.
Geography plays a huge role in the development of a state and culture. Why is America the global superpower? Why are the countries of Northern Europe wealthier and more productive than their Southern counterparts? Why is Singapore so crucial to global trade? All of these questions can be answered when looked at from a geographical perspective. I hope to answer questions like these, and many more on this site.
