I so enjoyed my amateur economic geography yesterday that I’ve made an another tribute map.

- It’s a joy to be living in Copenhagen again, although I’m stunned by the traffic (especially the paucity of bicycles) and lack of decent smørrebrød

- WA is no doubt relieved it has held off on adopting the Euro
- Tasmania has under-utilised its first-mover advantage with legal casinos
- Both our non-states (i.e. the Northern and Australian Capital Territories) have tax-haven status
