New World Order, Europe moves to the Pacific!

While language varies from place to place, usually the lay of the land, at least in this geologic epoch is pretty constant. Not so according to this depiction of the globe we found In Ho Chi Minh City  near the Botanic Gardens and Zoo. Is this a clever metaphor for the close post-colonial relationship between Australia and Europe?  A sly literary allusion to Jose Saramago's wonderful satiric novel The Stone Raft,  where not just the Iberian penninsular drifts off from Europe but a much larger part of Europe takes off for warmer climes.
