The map above shows just how big the United States is or just how big the Mediterranean Sea is, depending on your perspective.
And it should not be confused with the existing American Mediterranean Sea which is the the combined water body of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.
If you look closely you’ll see that the map author has gone out of their way to funny details such as the Confederate Sea, The Plains sea, Sea of Illinois, Great Salt Islands, Straits of Pismo, East and West Dakota and many more.
For a full explanation, you can read Bret’s post on The Arcadian Ideal.
You can learn more about the Mediterranean from the following books:
- The Complete Mediterranean Cookbook
