At a cursory glance, it looks almost normal: There’s the familiar jut of Florida, the Great Lakes, Mexico and South America.
But look again.
Alaska has been erased as if it sunk into the sea. And don’t expect to see Wyoming here — Anna doesn’t believe the state is real.
The teen laid waste to the Western Hemisphere in an inspired and existentially upsetting map, which has since enlightened and enraged hundreds of thousands of Twitter users, inspiring at least two separate Twitter trends.
She told CNN she was inspired by people who’d previously attempted to label the US and “failed miserably.”
Anna declined to elaborate on the purpose of a second Ohio when asked by CNN. “Does anyone really want to know more about Ohio 2? Nobody even wants to hear about Ohio 1,” she said.
Also missing from this map is the sparse state of Wyoming. Despite it being home to the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone National Park, Anna doubts that it is real.
“Nothing against Wyoming, it just doesn’t exist,” she said. “Having it on the map is like putting Hogwarts or something on it.”
But oh, we haven’t even touched the rest of the Americas. Anna is really into starting international wars, so the skinny strip of South America that used to be Chile is now “Long Chile” and extends all the way up the West Coast.
In Anna’s twisted world, the Chilean-American War that results from Chile effectively stealing the Pacific Ocean is the catalyst of World War III.
Why all the war? Anna didn’t say. But let’s hope Ohio 2 is spared.
