This map of America shows some of the stereotypes that surround the country. America is synonomous with aspects from a foreign view point for example their problems with obesity in which an area of the country is named 'obesity epidemic'. It is very generalistic of certain American states also. I think this map has real significance in what some people see when they think of America in terms of it's diversity even though this isn't what could be called a serious description of America. Americans are on a serious not generalised in other ways such as; the South west east north, by coast, accent, ethnicity, political agenda (hippies in Washington State).
