Nation states falling off the map

It's easy to draw a map and forgot which country's which. Well, it is for the geographically challenged Guardian.
A map of the states of former Yugoslavia showed Bosnia (minus Herzegovina), Montenegro, and Macedonia. The rest was wrongly labelled Yugoslavia. That area should have shown both Serbia and Croatia. In addition, Slovenia should have appeared to the north-west (Tiny nation with colourful past set to witness final break-up of the Balkans, page 29, yesterday).
That must be some geography department they have at Farringdon Road.
