Map of Android Market supported countries

As you might know, Android Market only allows people in certain countries to buy paid apps. Also, developers can only publish those applications if located in supported countries. The list of those countries is published here.

As I'm a visual type of person, I like to see maps. Surprisingly, there is no map of of Android Market supported countries available anywhere yet. So I've created one myself:

Developers based in "green" countries can publish paid apps. Users based in "green" or "blue" countries can buy them.

As you see, all the "Western world" is covered. What is notably not covered is Eastern Europe and Asia. And that's unfortunate, as there is a lot of good developers (and potential buyers) in those regions.
