  1. I like the map, but I think a chart/list would be helpful for people on smaller screens and the visually impaired. I’m also not sure the left-right spectrum is as applicable to nations as it is to publications and journalists. Consider the case of Belarus and Russia, both on the opposite ends of the left-right spectrum per your map but very similar in most aspects and often close allies. Likewise for North Korea and Iran, they are closer to each other than either is to most other countries, but are also on the opposite sides of the spectrum per your map. The political orientation of authoritarians don’t seem to matter as much to them as what helps them maintain power, so shifting less-free nations to black regardless of political orientation may be helpful, but that’s just my opinion. In any case, thank you for all your efforts.

    Thanks for the feedback. That is an option we could offer. We’ll look into it.
