Data from 2012 census estimates at the county level.

The 2nd map is the 145 most populated counties.

This year California will vote to keep or ban the death penalty.  If California bans it they will be the 18th state to do so (Washington D.C. also has banned the practice).  So here are a few maps showing death penalty info.  The second and third maps have the number inside each state I used to make the cartogram.

Note: Connecticut and New Mexico have banned the death penalty but grandfathered some people on to death row,11 and 2 respectively.  The third map only counts deaths since 1976 because the supreme court put a temporary ban on it between 1972 and 1976.  Also that seemed like a good block of time to use for data.

For the record I’m for the death penalty in extreme situations.  What I don’t like is having 723 people on death row and only executing 13 in 36 years.

Currently in America marijuana is still illegal, very illegal in some places.  These 16 states have made it legal for medicinal use.  Which is a step in the right direction if you ask me.

I was surprised to hear that the majority of states age of consent isn’t 18.  I’m from California where the age is 18.  So I looked it up and only 20 states set the age at 18.  I’m very liberal but I found the number of states with a lower age kind of creepy.  I included Washington D.C. so the number of states equals 51.

Here are all the countries who have appeared in a World Cup.

Red = 15 + Appearances

Dark Blue = 1 - 2

I had to adjust some figures, for ex: I gave The lone appearance of Dutch East Indies to Indonesia. Things like that. I tried to keep it as real as possible.

There are 38 landlocked countries.

This maps shows the current congressional districts with their party affiliation.  I wanted to show how the majority of republican districts are rural areas.  While the democrat districts are mostly in and around major cities.
Each district has approximately 700,000 people.  Montana has the most about a million and Wyoming has the least with about half a million.
Republican districts cover about 4 times as much land as Democrat districts.
