Well, you'll have to find the boundaries in some electronic GIS format such as a shapefile (though there are other options).

I don't know where to find such a thing. Your chances of finding someone who does know are greater on the R-sig-geo mailing list, so I'd suggest asking there.

You may also need to transform your boundaries from whatever coordinate reference system they come in, to your desired projection.

    Hi again,
    I am trying to draw a World map which is divided into 6 Economic
    regions as available in below link
    I am aware of various R ways to draw World map based on Countries like
    one available in
    However I do not want to put any individual Country boundaries,
    instead the individual boundaries of 6 Economic regions in the World.
    Can you please suggest how can I achieve such a World map. Any pointer
    will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks for your time.
