Mapnerds, I have several more posts coming up for you, but I thought I would start with this one since it caught my eye.  The Institute for Economics and Peace has issued the map below via Washington Post.  The red countries are the most affected by terrorism, while the greener countries are the least affected (but it doesn’t mean they are inherently ‘safe’).  One observation: South Asia is the most terrorized region.
