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

The Corporate States of America

America and corporation go hand in hand, and artist and writer Steve Lovelace wanted to illustrate it on a map he created called “The Corporate States of America.” This map shows the most famous brand (as of 2012) that originated in each of the 50 states.

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).
