California, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, and Florida all come from words in Spanish (I forget most of them, except Montana is Montaņa, or mountain)

Then what's the rest of the green?

Blue might be Native American place names?

Red seems to be people (Louisiana -> Louis the whatever, Washington -> George Washington, Virginia -> teh Virgin Queen, and so on)

The SD, MS and AL results should hopefully be a sufficient clue.

McGovern v. Goldwater or something?

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

It's obviously something to do with the alphabet.

To some extent.

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?

No, it should be dark green.

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.

Couldn't find anyone who answered this, so I will.  It's the phonetic characteristics of the first consonant sound in the name.  Green is nasal, yellow is fricative, and so on.  Dark means voiced, light means unvoiced.  As a speaker of American English, I demand a separate color for Idaho and Italy, where the first consonant is a flap.

Correct Grin  (and as a speaker of American English, I am ashamed that I did not use a separate color for our beloved flap Wink)

Howard Dean lost Iowa convincingly in the 2004 primary season and Iowa is in grey, so therefore does it show a connection between Dean's primary vote compared to Kerry's?
No, it has nothing to do with voting percentages. Though you are on to something by saying he lost Iowa.

Hint: It has to do with a speech he made.

Red indicates places that he named during that oh so famous speech in Iowa?

With the shading indicating the order in which he said them.

Bingo. Iowa is grey because he was in Iowa when he gave the speech, and mentioned it, but wasn't going there.

Woah!  Kudos to you for such a clever idea Grin

This isn't political at all, and is to do with a certain geographical feature:




Any ideas, anybody?  It's also to do with the name of each state.

Blue=has a river running through it with the name of the state (Colorado River, Mississippi River)
Green=there is a river with the same name, but it does not go through the state (Columbia River, Michigan River)
Red=no river, no state
