A serio-comic map satirising Ronald Reagan's view of the World

HORSEY, David.

The World According to Ronald Reagan.
Seattle: AA Graphics Inc., 1987. Lithographic map, printed in black and brown. Sheet 585 x 885mm.

A caricature map by an artist working for the Seattle Post Intelligencer, depicting President Reagan as a sheriff, his figure filling an exaggerated California, hands twitching over his six-guns. The rest of the U.S. is divided between the Mid and South-West ('Republicans and Other Real Americans'), the North-east ('Democrats and Welfare Bums') and Alaska ('Santa Claus'), with a special mention for San Francisco ('Homos').
Central and South America are 'Illegal Aliens', 'Contra Country' and 'Drug Pushers', with a portrait of Daniel Ortega; Africa, witth a portrait of Gaddafi, is labelled 'Terrorists', 'Cuban Mercenaries' and 'White Folks' in apartheid South Africa.
In Europe the UK is marked Thatcher Land, again with a portrait, containing 'Our Missiles'; France is labelled 'Socialists and Pacifist Wimps'; and Poland is 'Solidarity'.
The USSR ('The Evil Empire' is filled with Gorbachev as the rival gun-slinger, with 'Their Missiles' and 'Ma's Cow'. Israel is over-sized and contains Beirut; Arabia is 'Our Oil'; Iran is 'Muslim Maniacs with 'Our Arms Shipments'; China 'Good Commies'; and 'Japan Inc' is shaped like a car.
In the Indian Ocean is a compass rose, with a central image of Granny and her apple pie, and cardinal points of 'North (Rich)', 'West (Us)', 'South (Poor' and 'East (Them)'.
