An "official" view of the Midwest

Bill Rankin:

After using Google to find 100 different maps of the Midwest (with a preference for those with some official organizational status), I simply overlaid them all. The result is not a map of the Midwest as we might imagine it to be; it is instead a map of the Midwest as a complex and fragmented administrative category.

At least this one doesn’t include Washington State. But Georgia? Come on.
