The map of South America with all the town/cities with more than 20 k people and no wards (I suppose that means no branches or groups as well) is amazing. It looks like Brazil alone could use another 10 missions. There are some good sized towns in Colombia.

Nothing in Chile, which seems to be expected. I was in smaller towns than that that had wards/branches.

Imagine with India and China, the map would have be 1,000,000 or more. Africa, 500 k or more.
