    It's a brilliant map. I suppose this means Edmonton is the capita of Odahi?

    You could make each story have a ceiling tall enough that you can actually fit a New England small town main street in it, with all of its two-story shops and businesses. Maybe a creek and a covered bridge. It's a literal recreation. Each small town has a floor for a main street and maybe two...

    I could definitely see non-token concessions by the US to Uruguay and Canada to keep additional non-Western Hemisphere countries out. But Russia, especially, will want something. It won't be in the Americas, but something somewhere will be negotiated. .

    Really neat concept. But Russia, Iran, Pakistan, Japan, Canada, and all of Europe (among others) are going to lay claims to at least some of that untouched land. No one is going to let the US take everything down to the Amazon. Canada will definitely get some. Hell, Uruguay will get some...

    Really, Arial should have been Denmark. Because just a change of just one letter makes it part of their world. .
  11. Alternate Electoral Maps III

    Heh. You should give them the number of electoral votes they had when Doctor Who premiered in that state. :) .

    If love it if Lithium and Lithuania came from the same root word. .

    Illinois looks weird when the Chicago districts aren't gerrymandered to hell and back. .

    It kind of looks like Greenland, but moved up to the pole and distorted because of it. .

    This is really just a typo map. So many corporate maps are just clip art that someone from the graphics design department can click on a country, change its color, and move it around. In this map, that specific someone likely clicked on Spain and Portugal (and I'm guessing the Low Countries...
