    That looks to be an OLD map.
    Probably at least early or mid 2014.

    There are now dozens more Superchargers in Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway at least three Superchargers in Poland and one each in Czechia and Moscow.

    The map is latest from Tesla site. The regions with red map markers are besides the point. The point was, why does the baltic region remain blank? Chicken-and-egg-problem. @JonMc

    You are correct: Chicken and egg problem.
    More demand from consumers generates/encourages more infrastructure (Tesla Service Centers and Superchargers) from Tesla.
    In the U.S. and Canada there is Plugshare and other options on how to travel and facilitate charging.
    Norway and Northern Europe has filled in nicely, expanding Eastward and further South, into Iberian Penninsula, nearing Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria then connecting into Turkey.

    Moscow looks kinda lonesome (currently).

    Going back to your original question: maybe look @ https://supercharge.info/ site.
    That MAP is a lot more accurate and current.

    It takes time and money to build networks of Superchargers, distribution and Service Centers.

    Looking back where Superchargers network was four years ago, Tesla has made incredible strides.

    Tesla does not sell in those countries and therefore does not offer service or Superchargers in those countries.

    Tesla is a small car company selling primarily very expensive cars. It does not have the resources to sell in every country in the world. It has to decide where there is a sufficient market present for it to have a presence and be profitable. And given the incredible Model 3 demand it will be years before Tesla will be able to sell it in every country where there is a market for a car in that price range.

    Apart from it being outdated, as everyone else pointed out.... baltic GDPs per capita range from 26k to 30k USD, your gas prices are $4,62-$4,82 per gallon, and 90% of your electricity comes from oil shale. Meanwhile, our GDP per capita (after our currency spike this year) is nearly $60k, our gas around $7,80/gal, and our power is essentially 100% hydroelectric and geothermal.

    Basically...get in line :Þ Tesla will build wherever they choose and we have no direct influence over it. :Þ Probably the best thing you can do is... encourage lots of people to buy Teslas. The more they sell, the more they'll pay attention to your country.

    ED: Unlike us, you are in line for a supercharger this year. :Þ

    It's going to be in Pärnu. Latvia gets 2, Lithuania 1, and there will be a complete path through Poland to Finland through the baltics.

    Looking at the build quality up to date, I would not put in an order before we have a Tesla Service Center.

    I hope the promise/schedule does not go stale year 2017 like it did last year ...
