If the rule “You can run, but you can’t hide” exists, reword it to:-

[[Image:England traditional counties.png|300px|thumb]]

Each Commoner is located in a County (tracked in the GNDT, and defaulting to Dorset), an entry from the list below. Each county is numbered and marked on the map to the right. If two counties have a border line running between them (and do not just meet at a corner), they are considered to be neighbouring.

  1. Bedfordshire
  2. Berkshire
  3. Buckinghamshire
  4. Cambridgeshire
  5. Cheshire
  6. Cornwall
  7. Cumberland
  8. Derbyshire
  9. Devon
  10. Dorset
  11. County Durham
  12. Essex
  13. Gloucestershire
  14. Hampshire
  15. Herefordshire
  16. Hertfordshire
  17. Huntingdonshire
  18. Kent
  19. Lancashire
  20. Leicestershire
  1. Lincolnshire
  2. Middlesex
  3. Norfolk
  4. Northamptonshire
  5. Northumberland
  6. Nottinghamshire
  7. Oxfordshire
  8. Rutland
  9. Shropshire
  10. Somerset
  11. Staffordshire
  12. Suffolk
  13. Surrey
  14. Sussex
  15. Warwickshire
  16. Westmorland
  17. Wiltshire
  18. Worcestershire
  19. Yorkshire

The first line of the above rule is wiki markup for this image. Upon enactment of this rule, if the image has been replaced or altered since its initial upload, it shall be reverted to the version that was initially uploaded to that URL.

Replacing the list of adjacencies with an image map. I think “a border line running between them (and do not just meet at a corner)” is unambiguous enough, but if I’ve missed something we can patch it.

I appreciate the concern, but the wiki-hosted image has exactly this CC information, and (as is the case with all of Wikipedia’s images) will be viewable when the image is clicked.
