Now I want to mount a gun on a Siberian tiger and smear Hulk Hogan pate on a tailgating dolphin.

That would be West Oregon subby. It's a lawless land where anything goes. Do you want to watch Hulk Hogan wrestle endangered Siberian tigers? Go to West Oregon. Would you like to smear dolphin pate on crackers? Go to West Oregon. Would you like to not only mount a gun on your cars trunk and be able to use it on tailgaters? Go to West Oregon.

West Oregon, where Americans go for a taste of debauchery.

Sure, lump Las Vegas and Salt Lake City together in the same state. That'll work well.

My priorities for creating this map were to: end up with 50 states;

That is very important when batshiat-brainstorming.  There have always been 50 states, so there should always be 50 states.

There's also a weird quasi-state near what became Worthington, MN. On this map, it's on the Missouri-Wisconsin border, northwest of Iowa.

I thought I understood what a watershed was, but if Georgia flows into both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic, then I am either too smart to teach or too dumb to learn.

A long narrow strip along Lake Erie all the way up to Niagara Falls.
