The following world regions are listed: Africa (9 countries), Asia (18 countries), Central and South America (25 countries), Europe (49 countries), and Oceania (17 countries). The „Legal and Social Mapping 2014“ consists of three volumes of a world mapping and two regional mappings covering Europe and Oceania.
