Several things are wrong here: 1 The CountryData function generates a Graphics structure. That itself should not be put inside another Graphics as you do. 2. The range in the Line function is much too large Try something like: Show[ CountryData["World", {"Shape", {"LambertAzimuthal", {-30, 0}}}], Graphics[ { {Red, Line[{{0, 0}, {1, 1}}]} }] ]
