So I'd be living in a Republic, I'd be, at the worst, forced to speak French and English instead of Spanish and English/Spanish, No annoying bitchy EU Members, No China, Russia, or Japan.

AND CANADA'S GOVERNMENT?

Best prediction ever.

But in all honesty, China is prone to collapse before anyone else (besides N. Korea). The EU is having a shit ton of leaving movements (Ex: the UK), Russia is, well, Russia.

BUT CANADA! It's like Greenland BUT BETTER. The US Government could learn a thing or two about Freedom FROM CANADA!

And the Midwest/Great Lakes stay together, which is all I really care about.

Intresting Map but how do you reckon America would split. Economic ruin? Peaceful agreement? Or other reasons?

Edit: damn it death you beat me to the punch.

Answer to Death and Luna:

The US wouldn't split like this (not that it would split, anyway). If anything, we'd get a couple of states that vote for secession, wouldn't be able to support themselves for more than a couple generations, and rejoin. Hawaii could do fine as long as it would join another country, but it wouldn't. Hawaii was its own land before US Imperialism. Alaska would rather join Canada than Russia, and I guess would also do fine, assuming Canada wants Alaska.

Those predictions don't make sense and don't seem to be based on any cultural disparities. I don't think this Russian professor analyzed any worthwhile data beyond geographic proximity and cultural stereotypes (South Carolina and Rhode Island should never be in the same cultural grouping, anyway).

To me it seems like this 'Russian Professor' based his ideas off of geography and nothing else. Political opinions do not seem to be factored in very well, and neither is culture.

What are you guys talking about? Everyone knows that California and Arizona are super similar politically. Not to mention all those states around Texas, I'm sure that when they're in need, Mexico will be the first country they turn to.

In all seriousness though, it looks like he just grouped states together geographically and then picked a nearby foreign country.

America is pretty uniform in culture, English ethnicity 80%<; but rest I agree with.

Some 'Russian professors' believe in mad things. Some call them pioneers, other call them crackpots.

There are so many things wrong with that map. If the U.S splits, it'll likely be between the liberal states and the conservative states. I don't see any pattern with this except for geography.

South Carolina would never get along with the New England states.
Arizona and Utah are so incompatible with California it's not even funny.
As someone who's in the area I can tell you there's no alliance between Missouri and Illinois happening in a civil war situation.

The only grouping here that would make sense is the Texas Republic if you took away New Mexico.

> Implying Mexico is not in need.

EDIT: And if you mean to say there is a surplus of Mexicans who would wish to join with Mexico if the US ever does split, just remember the reason they are in the US now.

Plus, if I am wrong, and they would love to join Mexico, then too would California.

I guess I should have remembered the old adage about sarcasm and the internet. If you were wondering, my entire post before "in all seriousness" was sarcastic.

America's Government in complete shit. Our economy could take a few more hits before we have a giant collapse, the South is still retarded, among other things.

Also, Canada has a smaller Population and Military, and less crucial resources.

Why would the EU invade ? It doesn't make sense not only would they not have the armies to do so, they wouldn't have the means to do so and considering a lot of the EU trade comes from the USA a lot of the EU would collapse immediately similar to the Wall Street crash in 1929.

Did you know that Canada is second biggest producer of snow? And wilderness-desert? And the magnetic poles?
(and more seriously, Uranium)

Let's look at a statistic.

Canada has literally ∞x more magnetic poles than America. I think that's hard to compete this.
