    Found this on google images, again.

    Website's something like "Green Energy Investors" and the forum titles "US Breakup, can it really happen?" Not clicking the link because it's pretty shady, but I think it's a funny-lookin' map so here we go

    Grouping hypothetical balkanized states together by political or cultural similarities? Nah.

    Grouping hypothetical balkanized states together in random lumps based on nearby powers? Perfect.

    Alright, so I looked into the post, and I found the key. I'm posting the original map again just so the key matches:

    Further addendum: Looking at the entire thread, it's from about 2013, and it seems pretty alt-righty. Most predictions involve white genocide, with one prediction involving the Aztlán ethnostate. Here's the thread if you wanna judge for yourself

    never thought that green energy investors could be alt-right

    Some of those determinations by the Russian guy are curious.

    On the topic of Arabistan on the last page, that is an actual region of Persia, that wasn't something the map author made up...

    But that Arabistan contains basically none of Arabistan so...

    I suspect it's an official rump state based on having Washington, Philadelphia, and New York - the triple historical capitals - and being the Mid-Atlantic core, which is frequently called the "most American" region of the east coast vs the Southern States from VA downwards and New England having much stronger local identities vs the Mid-Atlantic's identity always being based on "sorta just there". :p

    From reading the article, it seems like the guy who made the map didn't know that much about American culture.

    keep in mind that it's also a very old map--i seem to remember hearing that it's from about the Bush era

    Looking at the forum itself, it feels pretty alt-right, oddly enough.

    Not a full-on proposal or war aim, but I remember that, back in 2016, young lil Bennett tried to predict the future of North America. Needless to say, it was pretty stupid because I was about thirteen years old and didn't know how geopolitics worked, but here it is:

    Having Lebanon split in two certainly makes more sense than both halves being swallowed by Israel, which would just lenthgtehn their border and cause even greater rifts with local Christian and Shia groups. Oddly enough though, I bought the Alawife state was further south.
    Foolish? Perhaps. But at that age most kids don't know the islands north and west of Quebec are all owned by Nunavut. The rest is fairly standard stuff. Do you rememeber what you thought process with Coahuila was? You found old maps showing both them and Texas as part of the same province?

    Bernard Lewis was a historian, advisor to GWA Bush and associated with the neocons agenda. I'm not familiar with this specific proposal.
