I need a map of a country on which a region( part of the map) can be
clicked ( or on mouseover) causing, on another part of the same page,
the appearance of information regarding the region.
I know how to show the information based on another part of the page,
but I don't know how to make a map of a country clickable ( meaning,
clicking different part of the map to show info on the page).
How can I make a map of a country with different clickable regions?

you can buy CuteMAP alone at a fairly reasonable price. You can select
a rectangle, circular, or polygon area by moving a cursor around on
your map to define the area you wish to include. The polygon feature
allows you to better cover an irregular area you wish to make hot. The
program writes all of the code you need. Some of the code may not
