Presidential candidate Moon Jae-in, who appears to be the front runner, has released two versions of a custom map called “Moonters” (geddit?) to mark StarCraft going free. The maps are available on the politician’s official blog.

As tipster Sang points out, the map is just an existing one with a big pile of minerals in the middle that reads “1 Moon Jae-in.” (The other version of the same map has “1" in the top right corner.)

Here’s a time lapse clip of the map on Moon’s official YouTube account.

This is not a joke. This is real.
