The 3,033 States of America

The 3,033 States of America

Let’s delete all the 50 states and use counties instead. We could have 3,033 states. Here’s what the map would look like. (take a look at the full hi-res version)

There would be a problem that many of the states have the same last name. Washington is used 31 times. What would we do there? Put a number after it? Washington1, Washington2? How about a descriptor. Coolest Washington. Super Lame Washington. Or they could just rename those counties… i mean, states. There are 24 President’s names that are not being used. I’ll even offer up my last name for one of the 3,033 states. Welcome to the state of Maldre. I’ll even make the highway signs to welcome people to my state.

What would the United States flag look like with 3,033 stars?

Where would the Senate, with 6,066 members meet? How about a minor league baseball stadium…

Hey Matt, do you remember when I declared my own republic when we were kids? It was called U.K.E.M. United Kingdom of Erik Maldre. My republic even had its own government seal.

It’s interesting how most of the counties in the midwest (only west of Missippi River) are very rectangular.
