Oklahoma really doesn't fit in with Iowa or the Dakotas. It's just the South on Midwestern soil: mostly Baptist, very conservative, lots of guns and sweet tea and pickup trucks. It's flat, sure- but so is Arkansas.

You may be better off splitting the Midwest into a northern and a southern portion. This is most apparent in politics (the northern Midwest voted for Obama in the last two elections, which is unimaginable in Kansas or Oklahoma), but is more far-reaching than that.

Also, Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, and to an extent Pittsburgh (which however has undergone a resurgence in the last couple of decades) are all Rust Belt. That's definitely a cultural grouping: post-industrial cities and their hinterlands, mostly populated by Eastern Europeans and some Italians and Irish, with bad ghettos, that were much more prosperous and populated half a century ago.

And about the similarities between Westeros and the British Isles, it's Ireland who plays a big role, at least for the central part (so it excludes the North and Dorne):

I can recognize most regionalisms and nationalisms in that map: Basque, Catalan, Wesh, Scottish, Kosovan...

I presume that the ones we see in Finland are Swedish-speaking areas, but I'm not sure at all.

And that one in Lithuania is for...? It corresponds with Dzūkija, it seems.

That map isn't extremely accurate, but it may be based on this one?

i have just realised something looking at this map. Apart from the Southwest, where the liberal democrats are some sort of weird regional thing, almost all of the lib dem seats are on the borderline between tory and labour regions — there are no lib dem seats deep within the Labour tumours [except in glasgow]

i wonder if it means anything
