Satirical cartography is a form of art, exposing stereotypes and political messages with comical geopolitical illustrations.[1] Satirical cartography dates back to the late 18th century and early 19th century. Hanna Humphrey and Frederick W. Rose are among the earliest pioneers in cartoon-ish maps.[2]

In some cases, satirical cartography is meant to critique places and peoples or alternatively the stereotypes forming around given places and peoples.[3]
