I'm wanting to plot a simple globe with the international borders on it.  The part I'm missing is some sort of database for the borders.  I found topo data, so I can get the continental borders (coarsely) by plotting a contour as level 0, but I'd like the internal borders too if possible.  I don't have the mapping toolbox.  Can anyone point me to a data set?
