I once studied a map of the world broken up into time zones, and it was
quite
interesting.  I saw some that had 1/2 hour time zone difference, some
that had
2 hour etc..., that is, difference   from what it would be if the world
were
cut up into 24 wedges.

It seems to be the decision of the controlling government for the
geographical
area as to what time zone they are in.
