Neil Freeman created a map of the United States that divide the nation into fifty states with populations are almost equal (about 6,175,000 people). The idea of the map came from discussions of the electoral college, which can return results that are different from the popular vote nationwide. Under this plan, Alaska and Hawaii would be part of mainland states. The biggest cities would be their own states, or even be split between two states. And the names would take some getting used to! I would live on the line dividing the states of Mammoth and Blue Ridge. See a bigger (but not big enough) map at Freeman's website. Link -via Marginal Revolution
