Ancient Supercontinent Map with Modern Day Country Borders

Video Preview

Digital artist Massimo Pietrobon created “PANGEA POLITICA“, which takes a look at the world as it once was before all the tectonic plates shifted, as the supercontinent Pangaea, but with the country borders of modern age. With this map, Pietrobon also posited whether or not the countries of the world would come together if they all had to share a single piece of land once again.

The supercontinent of Pangea formed some 270 million years ago, during the Early Permian Period, and then began to break up 70 million years later, eventually yielding the continents we inhabit today. Pangea was, of course, a peopleless place. But if you were to drop today's nations on that great land mass, here's what it might look like.
