Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm preparing some learning materials and I need to get country shapes w/o names rendered on a bigger scale map. One country (current or better - by coordinates) should be highlighted. See the attached image, an example from Wikipedia. Any ideas how can I achieve that?

For maps of this scale, I'd suggest getting small scale country shapes from Natural Earth. A map like this can be achieved with a mapping software such as QGIS or, if you want interactive maps, with web mapping tools such as D3.js or Leaflet.
