You could try Inkscape - https://inkscape.org/en/download/. You should see details about map making on the Wiki at https://www.warlight.net/wiki/Map_making.

Take this tutorial. It covers all the basics.

Also, get in touch with Ginger King and ask him about joining our mapmaking Discord channel. We have a bunch of great mapmakers on there, and we share advice, give feedback, test each other's maps, so on so forth.

Both of these things will help you greatly. Good luck.

This is my guide https://docs.google.com/document/d/1afOBmOGIWLUn-VAXrMToqbCG-5hsmxHacy3_2BdkjIg/edit#heading=h.yybgo098ueoy

If you follow it, you only have to draw half the number of lines you would have to draw if you were drawing territories as individual shapes.

DanWL, does it have a virus? I normally do not like to download stuff on my PC without knowing that it is safe.

Nope. Trust me, I'm paranoid because of my technological incompetence as well,(more like I used to be, whatever) but my pc sure did not get any AIDS from this.

It isn't a virus. If your not sure, you could download Inkscape then scan it using your anti-virus program before you install it. After you have installed Inkscape, you could scan it again.

Your first map should be 100 territories or less; kind of a test to see how you do. If you're curious as to what you should make a map of, make it anything you want. So long as it's not Europe, because I will burn everything you know.
Anyway, here's a list of mapless countries if you need ideas:

Africa

Botswana
Central African Republic
Congo-Brazzaville
Côte d'Ivoire
Djibouti
Ethiopia
Ghana
Guinea
Guinea-Bissau
Kenya
Mali
Mauritania
Morocco
Namibia
Niger
Senegal
Sierra Leone
Swaziland
Western Sahara
Zimbabwe

Asia

Bahrain
Brunei
Laos
Qatar
Tajikistan
Turkmenistan
United Arab Emirates
Uzbekistan

Atlantic Ocean

Dominica
Barbados
Grenada
Saint Kitts and Nevis
Saint Lucia
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Europe

Moldova

Indian Ocean

Comoros
Mauritius

North America

Guatemala
Honduras

Pacific Ocean

Federated states of Micronesia
Kiribati
Marshall Islands
Solomon Islands
Tonga
Tuvalu
Vanuatu

South America

Paraguay
Uruguay

I still stand by the belief that any map that includes only one country is uninteresting by definition(especially if it's a modern country), but hey, for a first map, any of these would do.

Just don't do what I did and try to make something like this https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=65085 for your first map :p

You may want to remove those from the list so nobody starts a needless project.

Something looks a little wrong about the map i am using, can someone paste a link for a map of Uruguay? Preferably 50-100 territories.
