Map of the Purple Sector (potential concept for space maps)

I wasn't really content with the shaping of the countries in the Purple Sector so I decided to give it all a cosmetic change. Arkbrik suggested that nations depicted as animals or fantastic creatures might look cool on a star map, so I decided to go with these:
Poland - White Eagle
Magyar - Green Falcon
Lietuva - Yellow Peacock
Monet - Blue Rooster
USSSR - Red Bear
Srbija - Dark Blue Wolf Puppy
Qirim - Light Blue Carp
Warp Holes/Anomalies - Trans-Blue Circles

The reason why I went with LDD for mapping instead of a drawing tool was to stitch other sub-maps on baseplates into one bigger map and shuffle them a bit easier instead of having to redraw the entire map for newcomers. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

It looks cool but the animal shaped thing is highly impractical

That conversation pretty much ended soon after it began
