American Empire – if you can figure it out

Writes one of our correspondents:

This is rather informative, but with a couple of glaring errors.
The narrator doesn’t know how to pronounce Palau.
The map below has the Marshall Islands misspelled and
its location confused with that of the Federated States of Micronesia.
I only watched once so there might be other goofs, but at least the fellow is trying
to look at areas usually ignored by almost everyone else.

The narrator also claims that “statehood is eternal,” whereas I claim that no temporal government is eternal. Least of all empires! None have conquered the entire world, and none ever will.
