Those are cute. What I would _like_ to see is a _complete_ geography of the pseudo-planet on which Narnia is located. There are a couple of places where Lewis talks as if there were _many_ nations in that world, as for instance when he refers to _multiple_ kings and princes being interested in marrying the adult-in-Narnia Susan and the adult-in-Narnia Lucy. But Narnia, Telmar, Archenland, Galma, Terebinthia, Calormen and Ettinsmoor DO NOT add up to "many" nations.

Very true, especially as Galma and Terebinthia were only small islands. There is plenty of scope for "new worlds" to be discovered, e.g south of Calormen, west of the Western Wilds, north of Harfang and by sea north or south.
