Shapes Distorted


I am using the ShapeFile feature for StatPlanetPlus. I have imported a shapefile map of the state Indiana, and the borders for all the cities inside Indiana. For some reason, when I try to view the map, all the city boundaries are simplified and distorted. Rounded edges become straight lines, and everything is displayed as either squared or triangles when the real geometry is more complex. The projection I am using is WGS 84, which should be pretty standard, so I can't see what the problem is. Thank you very much for your help
