Mam already told that, because of printing two dimensional map, it maximize the size of countries nearer the poles (US, Russia, Europe), while minimize the size of those near the equator (the African Continent).
it's all about Map Projections which are done through Mercator/Cylindrical methods. more you move towards poles smaller the place look in terms of visible area.
