We have a long tradition of asking our colleagues in other bureaus across the world to label maps of America. Following in the footsteps of the English and the Australians, our Japanese colleagues did their very best.
1.One person was so consumed worry about whether the good folks of Montana were warm enough that they completely forgot that Texas exists.
2.This person made a truly valiant effort, but now we're very worried about all the aliens in Mississippi.
3.This person did well in the "deep fried food" zone but lost their way up around Second Canada.
4.Justin Trudeau will be pleased to know he has some fans as far away as Japan.
5.This person is not wrong about how nice those rectangles are!
6.I wonder if Sarah Palin can see Russia from Ariana Grande's house?
7.This map is just a very good effort!
8.This one is good too, though we're pretty sure there's supposed to be a White Sox as well.
9.If Silicon Valley were in Georgia, we'd all be typing on Peaches instead of Apples!!!!!
10.Kudos to whoever led the rebranding campaign to change Mountain Carolina to Nicaragua.
11.And finally, points for effort, but everyone knows that India is in the American Northeast.
