Why is the map in this game shaped like a star?

I remember seeing a video about how the land mass actually look striking similar to the land mass over in France or something like that. Same ocean line and everything.

I think it's just because it's based on France's amorphous country shape and then they went "Hey, we could make it look like the derpiest little star in the sky"

...and then they did.

And then they decided to apparently have numbered gates leading out of Luminose I guess if there's 5 points they'll lead out into different parts of the world.

Because the map has warp points to all of Dinosaur Land.
