My favorite is south Florida not even being in America. I've certainly always had the feeling it sure ain't part of the rest of Florida.

Perhaps I'm the only one who read it as The Elven Nations of America. Now that would be a paleontology or sociology announcement. Though I'd like to know where the Rings are stored, and how good the security is.

Because it catalogs and breaks down the various geopolitical factions we have in this country, but isn't doing it by state, which is the standard way.

Hmm, it seems the folks in the OP read this also and just applied some snarkier titles.

I actually buy parts of this map more. Wisconsin in the OP map is not part of Yankeedom. I guess Minnesota is closer, but it's really its own deal.

I'd call it "The Scandia Rejects" or something.

Such a tiny section comes off as craziest of the crazies.

The rest of the state is just as crazy, only it's "good ol' boy" crazy, so it's less remarkable when needing to compete with the likes of Louisiana.
