I bow down to you thou noblemen, who has driven back the darkness and replaced it with the brightest of the lights. I bow down to you thou noblemen, who has crushed toowise, a lesser noblemen by any standards. I bow down to you thou noblemen, who is one of only 32 users with 45,000+ points. I bow down to you thou noblemen, who strikes fear deep within the hearts of his enemies. I bow down to you thou noblemen, who stopped me from saying the stroke on this map is a bit hit or miss. I bow down to you thou noblemen, who stopped me from questioning the continental rotation on a flat map. I bow down to you thou noblemen, who has made me write the stupidest comment in my life. I am forever in your service, sir NigelS.

In the map, Belize is a british colony. But in the answers, Belize is an answer. I think there's a mistake there.
