This still is pretty accurate.


HungryLikeTheWolf99

This looks like the mental representation of the US by people outside the US.


piedrift

It’s also a representation of the population of South Carolina lol


Milwankee

Don’t blame us. Just look how US people see Europe and countries around the world, that’s even worst. I went in USA : people was saying that Germany and France was the same thing and placed Roumania in Asia...

Wait.. it’s all Texas?


Bob_Johnny

Always has been

*bang*


Aiure

I mean, it's pretty amazing any states at all could be named by a country so far away. I doubt many Americans can name any of Sri Lanka's provinces.


Princevaliant377

I..didn’t know it had any


AlwaysLurkingForYou

Is Mexican Staring Frog one? Perhaps somewhere in the southern part of Sri Lanka?


Kvarts314

While I don’t expect and average Sri Lankan citizen to know all the 50 states of America and their placements, I would expect news channels to use accurate maps


Tapeworms

Yea, especially since it’s easier to just get a map off google, rather than make up your own


BigBlueMountainStar

No different to how far too many Americans think of the whole of the UK is London


cloroz

looks about right


HungryLikeTheWolf99

Interesting how all the borders they wound up with are actual state borders.


HungryLikeTheWolf99

5 states on this map - one unlabeled. And it's really small.


hobbittaa

what's wrong with it?


WantedByTheDEA

damn didnt know that my state is most of the east coast


SkunkyStoat

Damn bro, farming karma much? The first post in this sub with this image isn't 24h old yet! You could at least set your reposting bot to a week...


Igloocooler52

I saw this just yesterday, pretty good post, just don’t repost without at least some credit


SkunkyStoat

It's a reposting bot...


Igloocooler52

Yeah, I figured. There are a lot of those going around


SkunkyStoat

OP is a reposting bot....


CalliCosmos

As someone with a very typical Texan friend: they’d see nothing wrong here.


Diamon_sword1

I guess they reorganised


hansdev

This is just like "NORTH AMERICA" or the United States, calling them self "America" and thinking that South America or Center America are just a hoax


Ornery-Cheetah

Inaccurately correct


JJL8521

Yee haw motherfuckers


MilitarDog3

Reject the US become TEXAS


Think-Vanilla137

My state has been absorbed into the republic of California


Thizchyd

In our defense... 50 (panahai) sounds /really/ similar to 4 (hatharai)...... Right?


darkninja1012

this seems like a fallout map of the us after the ncr takes over vegas XD texas has taken over all of the midwest an new York and Florida are fighting for the east


Gypsylee333

This is how we should divide the country. Biden can rule new York, Bernie can rule new california, and Trump and some other douche can have Texas and Florida.
