OK, mine seems to be too stupid:
Just 10 groups of 5 states in alphabetical order....

This one is far better: it's a question of historical order for states to pass something. Something electoral.
Enjoy it.

Women's suffrage?

Yeah, right. By date of first decision to allow women's suffrage (all the South East just applying the 19th Amendment and having never passed women's suffrage before the Amendment).

Probably been done before, but...



Dem: 260
Rep: 268
Ind: 10

Alphabetical order.
I've done it recently, but with 10 groups of 5.
With no success, as your one.....

Dems 278 / GOP 260
(with 2008 EVs)
But, of course, it's not really a political map...

Democrats : an ultralibertarian
Republicans : an ultrapopulist

Same political majority for states whose name begins with the same letter....

A bit silly, sure, but quite disturbing because it doesn't appear as completely foolish.
MS, IL, WA, NE, of course, are surprising.

I think this is red -- European names, blue -- Amerindian names.  'Idaho', actually, is a madeup word.

Yep !

Arizona is either Basque (so European), either Oodham. (New) Mexico is of Nahuatl origin, but transformed by Spanish.
I thought Idaho was of Apache origin ("enemy"), but maybe you're right as there weren't many Apaches in this region. So maybe put Idaho in green.
And of course, I screwed up on Washington DC, which should be in red.

What's funny is that it's not a completely absurd map if you give it a political reading: sure, Massachussets, CT, IL, LA, SC are not very realistic... but even Minnesota, Michigan, GA, Montana and a weird swap between IN and OH aren't entirely impossible in the future !

Red: states where the capital isn't the most populous city
Blue: states where the most populous city is also the capital

I wished to keep the suspense longer, but, no, it's not political.

I've already done maps with alphabetical order, capital/biggest city, Indian names, etc
In fact, I try to find maps that might seem political but which aren't.

And my stupid one, nobody wants to guess it ?!?

It's about States' names, not at all political.

Don't see it. I'm really bad in guessing these things...

You're forgiven, it's especially stupid:
Red: more consonants than vowels in name
Blue: more vowels than consonants
Grey: "tie"

I like to try to find maps that are not completely impossible electorally speaking, but which have nothing to do with politics.
