In need for a grid!

This is a call for help to all of my readers with graphical skills.

This is the situation:
At the Weltenbibliothek, a german Wiki where others and me write interactive stories that play in a fictive world (where JFK's empire is part of it, too) We have a world map:

(click on it to have the full size)

To calculate the surface of each country, a user once created a version with a grid, hence we counted how many "squares" covered a country, knowing that a square stands for 68300 km²

This worked well, but then, new countries were added. The User who once created the map with the grid is no longer active. In fact, I don't know what happened to him. Since a year ago now, he didn't respond to any mail or other contacting, which leads me to think that something  ungood happened to him, since we were not angry at each other or something and he had always been very reliable otherwise.
Life must go on on the Weltenbibliothek, tough. Now, unfortunately, said user just gave us the above file, map and grid merged. But in order to go on, we would need a separate grid to put on the updated map. 
Well, I tried, but I wasn't able to create such a grid. And no one in our Community seems to be. Therefore: If any of you knows how to create one, could you give me the instructions? Or even create it? It must be a grid that covers the above Map, in transparent png format. Thanks for every help!

Einfach nur ein Gitter? Das ist alles? Keine Beschriftungen oder Kartenmalerei oder so? Das ist nicht schwer...
Wie groß wird das Bild denn? Wenn das wirklich alles ist kann ich es schon machen ;-)

@Sefarina: Ja, es braucht wirklich nur das Gitter. Es muss auf das Erste Bild der Weltkarte passen. (Bein Anklicken bekommst Du die Datei in Originalgrösse. Das wäre naturlich grossartig, wenn Du sowas machen könntest.
