Sun Sets on British Empire at 7pm Nightly

The Onion has a new Google Maps Mashup to rival Wikimapia. The Onion's map is full of interesting and useful facts. For example did you know that:

"For nearly 200 years Britain ruled over 500 million people on six continents - it was said that the sun never set on the British Empire. Today however the sun sets on the British Empire at 7 pm each night."

or

"Canada will never be as great as the U.S. so long as it continues to burden its citizens with universal healthcare, refuses to drill for oil in protected wildlife reserves and neglects to blindly support unilateral invasions of Middle Eastern states."
