This depiction of the "world" is widely accepted as accurate. Very few plateau inhabitants have ventured into the eastern wilds to verify the map, indeed, some Savoryans theorize that the eastern forest is not all dense wood, but with lack of other evidence they refuse to alter the established views of the plate. One heavy arguement is the existence of the large numbers of Zun. Some don't believe that they can flourish in such a small portion of the world. Who knows if the truth will ever be known.
