So Florida just gets all that coast? Cuz they didn't have enough to begin with

u/YanekKop Jul 31 '21

yeah! The panhandle goes to Texas

u/andrezay517 Jul 31 '21

Wisco gets their own state, but I get Iowa and Missouri surgically grafted to my Minneso-taint? This is bullshit

u/TheProofsinthePastis Jul 31 '21

Wisconsin and MI should be part of that nation and not Arkansas, in my opinion.

u/TheProofsinthePastis Jul 31 '21

NYC will never fall to Jersey. This map is incorrect.

u/Slpry_Pete Jul 31 '21

Wherever you're from has a black mark on its educational institutions

The fact that WI and MI are left untouched is kind of egregious, honestly. Also, Jersey Republic can have CT.

I’d take NYC and CT

Seems rather arbitrary.

Did you just merge PA and Ohio? Delete this now

u/stasismachine Jul 31 '21 edited Jul 31 '21

Well, idk where exactly you’re from, but eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania are much more similar than say they are to western Ohio. I grew up E of Cleveland a ways, and I would argue “Yinz” country expands well into where I grew up. Hell, most mine and people I know’s families are from the Pittsburgh area only a couple generations ago.

u/ArtisticTone1122 Jul 31 '21

After taking a closer look at the map, I think it’s actually not too bad. There are parts of Ohio I don’t like being linked to, but it’s actually better than being attached to Philly. And we get western NY in the mix which I also like

u/EvidentlyCurious Jul 31 '21

Western PA is beautiful if you don't talk to anyone from there. If you want to see what 5 generations of mild incest, sulfuric well water and institutional poverty with a bunch of substance abuse looks like head on out to Altoona, PA and the outlying hill towns. . . Yowza

u/stasismachine Jul 31 '21

Lots of my family is from Altoona as well. But, tone it down with some of your rhetoric. Incest is more of a trope than a reality in that area. You’re right about substance abuse, contaminated drinking water, and institutional poverty though.

u/gutterpuddles Jul 31 '21

Yeah, I’m not sure what model you used to make these groupings. Miami has little in common with the long panhandle, SoCal has more in common with SanFran than all that Reagan/trump country. And merging central/west PA with Buffalo and half of Maryland is questionable.

(Edited to fix autocorrect)

u/OnBeyondOz Jul 31 '21

SoCal gets Vegas. I’ll take it.

This would-be member of the Jersey Republic has some Pork Roll he would like to demonstrate to anyone who doesn't think that the Mason-Dixon line hereabouts runs through Trenton.

u/SwitzerlandIsFake Jul 31 '21

Why can’t Michigan at least get all the great lakes

u/terfexclusionary Jul 31 '21

Good, those NE states were too small anyway

1

u/Roberto-Del-Camino Jul 31 '21

But Fairfield County needs to be part of Jersey.

u/External-Life Jul 31 '21

Texas says “Yeehaw” 🤠

Florida looks at the coastline and says “More…”

u/menacingechidna Aug 01 '21

Maryland is just a mess in this map.
