USGS Iraq 2015 Notes

Iraq, having broke up into three regions in 2008 after the withdrawal of Coalition Forces- decided on a weak federal government.

Yeah, though more like Social Democrats. The NDP is also pro-independence for Quebec, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and some of the various other areas that wish to break away.

I need some help designing the map though.
