Hasn't Keven done something like this before, sans the actual map?He did one based on population, I believe. Also popular was his "what if Chiefsplanet memebers were _____?" where ____ could be US cities/countries in relation to the member's post count.

Maybe that was it. I don't care either way, I like maps so this thread would top Kevin's if he had done it.

Actually, mine was redesigning the 50 states so that they all had equal populations. It was a way cool map.

I'm really proud of it. It took me quite a while to put together. I might see if I can write an article about it with the election coming up.

Ireland gets the nuclear test sites plus Reno and Vegas? That's horrible; Ireland deserves better...I'm kicking Poland out of Missouri so I can give it to Ireland. Missouri's not really a Poland-place anyway...perhaps Kansas, Wyoming, Nebraska, or Ohio.

Props to Korea for getting a peninsula again.

I must have had geographical locations on my mind. Also the spelling of "Missourian", if that is a real word, strained my brain.
