This is my third map :D I'm not that good yet, but without trying I won't learn :P

Notes:
In this first release there are 14 towns/cities and 0 industries. There will be an introduction to industries in either V.2, V.3 or V.4. For now I'm just adding towns and cities. There will be many more towns and cities in the future versions. The next version will be titled ''Australasia V.2 - The Kiwi Edition". The reason for the title is simply because the next version/update will add more towns/cities of New Zealand to the scenario.

I'm not sure whether it is just the map type you selected - but I presume all of the land isn't dead flat?

Also, how big is the map?

Sorry but the land is dead flat, well there are random bumps.
Map size 1024 - 512

So you made it flat so you can have islands forming 'Red0011'? That's not very realistic!

Use a real-life heightmap, and if you want names, signatures or notes, write it in the edge of the map with a sign.

I only added my username because the rest of the map was already flat, so I added it. The image I used to create this map didn't have any hills or mountains. If you have a heightmap I can use then please do send it to me.

I would strongly suggest using a heightmap. There is a thread on here to request heightmaps (I'm on my phone so I can't link you to it) but I would trawl through the 40 odd pages of that thread - I expect there is a map for pretty much every country there.

I presume you have tried the in-game content downloader?
