Cartography Meets Satire: World Maps That Give Us a Lot More Than Just Geography

The Corporate States of America

Lovelace called his project response to “corporate feudalism.” The most controversial in the map might be California, where Apple got first place (above Facebook, Google, and Frontier Wok).
