Basemap Plotting on Floating(?) Axes

Hello all,

Several of us have been stumped on how to create a map with basemap that
doesn't have a rectangular bounding box. I've attached an example of what
we are trying to create (done with GMT and not ours). Browsing the docs I
thought it may be possible with a floating axis as in the gallery, but that
doesn't do the trick either. Is there a way to create such a plot with
basemap?

Thanks,
J.L.

I don't think so. Not easily, with labeled meridians and parallels.
