The United States of Star Wars

It’s a trap! No, wait…it’s a map!!! (Sorry, Admiral Ackbar). Welcome to Rebecca Crane’s United States, in which each state has been reimagined as one of the planets from Star Wars, in order to form a more awesome union. According to Crane, “Planets were assigned based on partial terrain, landmarks that correlate with the planet and state, types of people in the state and planet, famous landmarks, or slightly randomly selected (but loosely based on facts) from my brother and myself.”

You can check out the complete list of states and planets on her blog, as well as a larger version of the map. Also, while we’re curious about why South Carolina has the distinction of being the Death Star of the S.W.U.S.A., as inveterate geeks we’re more concerned with wondering whether the Death Star actually counts as a planet…(and there’s at least one Jedi Master who would argue that it’s not even a moon). Then again, who are we to quibble with greatness? Best. Star Wars Map. Ever.
