Dark and light shades do have something to do with one another.

Oops, I sort of did the map wrong.  It should actually look like this:



With this new completely standardized map, it would be pretty much impossible to have light green or light orange.  Light blue *could* exist, but [hint]probably only for members like Harry and Josh22[/hint].  Oh, and [hint]afleitch too[/hint].

Heck, I could do this map for other places too:



Wow, that is really hard.

Political map?

No; earlier, AlcHitlre said something about it having to do with letters, and I said that was somewhat close to what it is.

Is the fact that Indiana is green a mistake?

Yes, I had to add pink.  Oh crap, wait, I just realized this means my U.S. map is wrong...



Okie doke, only change, Georgia goes from dark red->dark pink.

Now, back to Europe.  A few points:

  • In case you can't see Malta or Luxembourg, they're dark green and dark orange, respectively.
  • Use 'Macedonia', not 'Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia'.  Otherwise it'd be light yellow.
  • Use 'Netherlands', not 'the Netherlands'.  Otherwise it would be dark yellow (not light red!)
  • Ukraine is not a mistake; it should not be light red.

Republicans vote a measure through congress to turn everywhere east of the Muzzsippy into a nukes-testing ground.
Democrats pass a platform plank to turn over all those uninhabitable wastes west of the Mississippi to Al-Qaeda as an appeasement measure.

State's most lopsided result since some date or other. Noone has cracked 60% in Ohio for several thousand millennia IIRC.

Umm, Johnson got 63% in 1964.

Except for the last sentence, you're correct.  It was each state's widest vote margin going back as far as 1900.

Here's an interesting map! The results would be R300-D238



It's the electoral average from elections since 1960.

Clue - each different shade represents a special case. The D80 and D60 shades are related. The D40 shade is not related to these. The I40 shade is not related to the I80 shade.

It's fairly easy, but see if you can figure it out.

It's a map of 1968.
80 shades - one candidate (Nixon / Humphrey / Wallace) over 50%, no other candidate over 25%.
60 shades - one candidate over 50%, one other candidate over 25% (actually, it was initially supposed to be separate colours, 60s and 50s,  depending on which other candidate crossed 25%, but this wasn't necessary as there was no state where Nixon or Humphrey was over 50 and Wallace over 25)
30 shades - two candidates over 25%, none over 50% (light blue - not used - ; Nixon and Wallace. pink: Nixon and Humphrey. light green: Humphrey and Wallace.)
grey - all three candidates over 25%.

Nope, think historical (but not too historical).
