To get rid of the vertical black line add the directive WorldFrame->None

In[1]:=
<<Graphics`Colors`

In[2]:=
<<Miscellaneous`WorldPlot`

In[3]:=
countryColors[country_] := 
  Switch[  country,  "Australia", Green,  "USA", Blue,  "Papua New Guinea", 
    IndianRed,  "Brazil", Gold,  "Peru", LampBlack,  _, GrayLevel[.6]  ] 

In[4]:=
WorldPlot[{World,countryColors},WorldProjection -> Orthographic,
    WorldRotation ->{30,45,0},WorldFrame -> None];
