Just because you put a map in it doesn’t really mean it’s interesting and related to maps.

An animated map covering a time period when the map didn't change? What's the point?

I found that to be by-gosh spellbinding! Then again, I watch soccer, so…

There are 7 data points here and 4 of them don’t change. So why are they here? Map, flag, coat of arms, and capital can all be removed and this communicates exactly the same information.

Though it would be better communicated in a static horizontal bar chart where you can see all the leaders over time plus a line for population.

Ironically, the Capital changed back to Berlin with reunification in 1990, so the year this video started.

It might be interesting to see this video starting in the 80s, and then compare it after reunification, but as is, it's pretty worthless.

Why did the population suddenly decrease by 2m then subsequently increase by 2m?
