You make your own. Combine or split up countries, create new continents, etc.

Well, the easiest way for drawing map is with MS Paint. If you want more advance look of the map, use Illustrator, Paint.net or any other photo editing software. Start with base, Is your nation island, landlocked or coastal? Does it have neighbouring nations from your region? Then is your nation full of mountains, or is it like the Netherlands, all flat. Start with basic borders of your nation, and then add elevation in layers, after that, the cities.

Very good job! I've been working on a wiki-ish factbook for a while (link). I think I did a good job with the individual posts (especially the military tech ones), BUT my main page needs a serious face-lift. This is just the kind of template I needed.

You could try putting an image in a box, with text also in the box:

Put [img] tags around the URL of the picture you want, and usually with tags to align it to the centre, with the code looking like this:

Just click on your flag with the right mouse button, click view image, copy url of that image into the [img] tags. Worked for me.
