The 38 States of America


The 38 States. From tjc.com.

Someone recently posted a link to this map and it’s accompanying explanation on my old blog as a comment on my regions project. I know that I’m not the only person to think about how meaningless state boundaries are in the United States, but I was unaware of this effort by C. Etzel Pearcy. It may be the most thorough I’ve seen. Although some of the regions would not fit Alexander’s criteria for independent regions (the ones in California, Texas and New York, to name a few, certainly have populations over 10 million), it is an interesting effort.
