[R] Maps, Eastern Europe

Dear all,

I would like to employ a European map in a presentation. My idea was to use:
library(mapdata)
map("worldHires", c("Austria", "Switzerland", "Germany"))

where I include all countries from my analysis as a vector of character strings like in the example above. Unfortunately, I was unable to specify the Baltic States (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia) or the Czech Republic.
Initially, I thought I misspelled the country names. To avoid this obvious error, I checked within 'mapdata_2.0-14.tar.gz' the file 'worldHires.names'. To my surprise, the spelling was not the source of the error - it was rather the case that those countries were not included.

Did some people experience similar problems? And if yes: how did you proceed?

Thanks,
Roland

P.S. my version of R is: R 2.1.0 on WinXP
