Dividing the Country Into Equally Populated States

Slate, surprising as it is, actually has an interesting article about various shapes the individual states within the United States would look if they were divided up in such a way that each one was equally populated. The article is mostly a bunch of neat looking graphics showing how the states would look if the population of this country was divided out in different ways.

But what I really liked is the idea of dividing states in a way that ensues each one has the same population. In fact it’s an idea I’m entirely behind. I believe this country should be divided up in such a way that there are approximately 316.1 million different states. As the population increases so will the number of states. This will ensure that each individual is their own state so we can do away with all of this stupid concepts of subservience to rulers.
