Oz! With a fun fact - L Frank Baum accidentally switched east and west.
L. Frank Baum's the Wizard of Oz map: Baum drew forty individual maps of Oz to accompany his novel. This is the major one, though, showing the entirety of the land and its surrounding areas. The Emerald City, in the center, is surrounded by four distinct countries.
Map of Oz, or at least the first map of Oz, as it appeared in L. Frank Baum's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900

This is the map to a certain fantastic place from a beloved children’s book (and, ahem, an unnamed movie) and its surrounding countries via Flavorwire. Just perfect.
Last April, scientists published the first comprehensive map of African groundwater reserves in the journal Environmental Research Letters. In the image above, World Policy Journal shows these water resources alongside historic drought conditions in an effort to define the enormous scope of this vital resource. Much of the groundwater lies beneath the Sahel belt, one of the most drought-prone stretches on the planet.

Map Room: Vast Freshwater Reserves Under Most Arid Areas In The World
For the first time, geologists have comprehensively mapped Africa's groundwater. It turns out that deep underneath some the of the most drought-afflicted regions of the planet, there are vast freshwater aquifers containing 60 times as much water as all the American Great Lakes combined.

My favorite Red vs Blue map of the US - Imgur
Generic Names For Soft Drinks (By County) - Pop, Coke, Soda, Other... Contrary to what the map says, I very rarely hear people say "pop" here. But I still like this.
The map here is pretty amazing. Color-coded, it shows the national distribution of terminology used to describe soft drinks. You'll notice some telling facts. For example, the thin swath of yellow running down an otherwise red Florida's coast. That's East Coast migrants (aka retirees) bringing their slang to Florida. And notice which state seems most pluralistic? Yup, that's all those military folks from across the country huddled together in New Mexico.

While I like the scientific aspect of it, I'm posting this for the English aspect. I love how language changes not only between entire countries, but over a few miles within the same country. Is it a creek, a run, a stream, or a brook? Or something else entirely? Across the contiguous United States, people use different names to describe small bodies of running water. Derek Watkins made this map showing the toponyms used in different regions. Click on the first link to view a larger version.
"This map charts the rich variety of waterflow toponyms in the US, which reflects the climatological and geographical diversity of the country, but also its linguistic and historical heritage. River names seem extremely resistant to change, and indeed often are echoes of earlier dominant cultures."

This map of the world, drawn by Facebook data structuring intern Paul Butler using connections between 10 million Facebook friends (full-size link), is interesting enough in itself until you realize that all of the country borders are entirely drawn using Facebook friend connections too. Even if the world was dark and totally unmapped, Facebook could produce a remarkably good approximation of most of its continents’ boundaries, and even the borders of some countries.
