re-drawn states w/ equal populations

i’ve had this sitting in my drafts folder for a long time, so let’s push it out.

i kinda like geography. so i was fascinated by this u.s. map with the states redrawn so that every state has an equal population (of just over 5 1/2 million, btw). you can click on the map to get a slightly larger view. pretty creative, and interesting. as i stared at it, i found myself speculating on what the implications would be of a reality like this, where the playing field is leveled.

This map is the creation of Neil Freeman, who noted that the current 50 states have populations ranging from a half million to 33 million.

  1. I’m in favor too – Chicago acts like the rest of Illinois is it’s own personal suburb – send them packing!
