  1. I'm trying to show my daughter what 85% of the world map looks like. I seen in 2011 85% of the world lived below the poverty line and I want to show her on the world map what 85% of the land looked like. I've searched online all day, but haven't found anything close. Can anyone please help me?

    Thank you in advance!
    Sincerely, Michael

    So 85% of the land would look something like:
