The map depicts the real world in approximately 2002–2006 rather than any point in the Fallout timeline. The same texture is also used in wall maps, such as the one hanging in the CIC of the Switchboard. While it's possible many globes throughout the Commonwealth predate certain geopolitical changes, that map in particular would be expected to accurately depict the state of the world in 2077.
As shown on the map, the Soviet Union—which in the Fallout timeline did not collapse in the 20th century—has split into each of the separate former-Soviet states (post-1991). Germany is reunited, while Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia have fractured, though Serbia and Montenegro are still unified (pre-2006). In Africa, South Sudan's secession has not yet occurred (pre-2011), but Eritrea is independent (post-1993). In the Pacific, East Timor is independent (post-2002).
Notably, the United States and Canada are separate, whereas in the Fallout timeline Canada was annexed some time between 2067 and 2076. Similarly, in the Fallout timeline China had also taken over much of the rest of the far-eastern territory not claimed by the USSR.
The map's coloring contains many errors: the Mediterranean, Baltic, Black, Caspian, and Red Seas are colored yellow as if they are land masses and not bodies of water, as are the Persian Gulf, the northern section of the Gulf of California, and the Great Lakes.
