     7The Sage source distribution must ship with a bare minimum of opaque potentially dangerous binary files.   Pickles (i.e. sobjs) are fairly opaque binary files that can invoke arbitrary code when being unpickled.  Also, sobj's have the drawback that they can someday break, and can be very hard to update later (the map of the world will change periodically).   There are currently three places in the Sage source code that includes pickles: 
     8   * the pickle jar,
     9   * the database of lattice polytopes
     10   * the above world map graph.

     12Please replace the world map sobj by something else, e.g., some code that creates the world map when the user first asks for it.
