Check Out an Amazing Middle Earth-Style US Map


Thanks to redditor Jvlivs, we now have a pretty good idea of what a map of the United States illustrated by Christopher and J.R.R. Tolkien would have looked like; Jvlivs based his idea of dividing the country into six “mega states” on Joel Garreau’s 1981 book The Nine Nations of North America . Head over to io9 to view a larger version, and let us know the comments what you think of his work.
