A map I made including roads, place names and the underground/metro system, called 'thāne-pān' (earth railway).

I like it.

Is that an island?

Underground railroads (the real thing, not the figurative "get slaves out of the South to Canada" type of thing) usually run between locations within the same city, or at least between suburbs of the same metropolis.
So do monorails or elevated railroads (or at least that's my impression).
Inter-Metropolitan railroads tend to be above-ground, don't they?

Are those stops districts and suburbs and neighborhoods in a city? Or are they cities on an island? Or what?

It comes above ground in less built-up areas, but is underground mostly. The names are districts. There were originally a north city and a south city, but as you can see, over time the two grew to effectively join together.

I could see it, but I'm not sure if the white and grey lines are main and rural roads or not.

Looks neat! Which lines are the roads, and which are the "metros"?

white = roads
grey = thāne-pān
red squares = thāne-pān stations

I like how you did the map- nice and simple and to the point. Looks great! I'd love to hear more about it.

Very nice. I'm making a metro map for my capital city as we speak. Also as we speak, the commuter rail in my city is not opening until the 30th! I can't wait that long! Mad

I noticed that there some places with very similar names and stay close to each other, except for karosakasale and karosarod.

(Of course, those name should have been written down according to their respective grammar / ortography, but it was harder for me to type them like I should on the first place.)
