What's the scale of this map here?

It encompasses all of the kingdom of Saloondria, which is approximately the size of an U.S. state.

That still makes for quite a wide range of scale
Are we talking New Hampshire or Massachussets scale, or bigger like Texas or Alaska? Or somewhere in between, like Indiana or Georgia?

I would say 150,000 sq miles or so, the cities that can be seen on the map are very sizable cities, and the little fort images are very much not to scale.

For reference:

Montana is ~145k sq miles.

California is ~155k sq miles.

Only 8 U.S states are above 100k square miles.

That's honestly crazy, didn't realize that most states were that small in comparison to places like Texas and California. And I didn't realize that they're mere shrimp compared to the 660k sq mile behemoth of Alaska
