Does this organization have a web site. I would like to see their defenitions or criteria for their judgements. Also the map doesn't quite stretch around the globe correctly could this have been corrected or maybe some image altering software used?

My source is the wikipedia article on democracy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy. I aligned it as best as one can, it's impossible to align a 2d map like this on a 3d surface. I don't have any program that can help me align it better.
