The Corporate States of America

This great map by Steve Lovelace replaces each state with its most prominent corporation.

I might quibble a little bit and suggest that Microsoft or Amazon are bigger deals than Starbucks, that Minnesota should be represented by Target, and that Darden Restaurants (i.e., Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Capital Grill) are a better representative of Florida than Hooters. Still, I love it.
