You can argue the poles are the North - South limits.

A place with a West-coordinate is always more Western than a place with a East coordinate and vice versa.

Excellent! Kiitos! I think I completely missed that sentence in the rules, I would have liked some numbers or perhaps a picture of that there. Thanks again!
