Note: Larger, more legible version HERE but you still won't be able to read the really small states, which is exactly why they should just join together to form one bigger state.
This is the Corporate States of America, a map of the US created by Steve Lovelace (I love sheer mesh!) showing the most famous brand from each state. Like, the most famous brand headquartered in a particular state. Although I just read some comments about the map and people were arguing that Illinois should be McDonalds, Ohio should be Victoria's Secret, Pepsi should be South Carolina, etc, etc. So, yeah, maybe it's all crap. I just liked all the pretty colors.
Thanks to my buddy Brian, who bought an island off New England and tried to form his own state but abandoned the project after finding out his wife planned to run against him for governor. Haha, Katrina. I'd vote for her too.
