This is great to see the Wikipedia data being visualised.. nice work!

In terms of interface, those circles can get in the way at times so it
can be difficult to see what's under them, especially as they grow in
size when you move your mouse near them. Also the display of areas can
hide everything that's underneath them (e.g. on the Isle of Man), so
perhaps they could be pushed to the back?
