Firstly, there is a problem with the configuration of your web server.
Even though you are serving gzipped SVG, the MIME type the server

Content-Encoding: gzip).  See:

With these, the document renders a map (at least) in Firefox on Linux.
The interactions don’t seem to work, though.  When mousing over a
section of the map I get JavaScript errors.  The script in the document
seems obfuscated or generated; it’s difficult for me to diagnose the
