Speaking of maps, Rhode Island doesn't border Maryland or Delaware. It's well over 200 miles between Rhode Island and Delaware, unless it somehow leapfrogged over Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. Might want to brush up on your geography a bit.

He persuaded James (Duke of York) to lease him the western shore of the Delaware Bay. So, in 1682, Penn arrived in New Castle with two documents: a charter for the Province of Pennsylvania and a lease for what became known as "the Lower Counties on the Delaware."

Merge Rhode Island with Maryland and Delaware?

States are artificial political entities, and as such, cannot "mingle" with one another.

I rather join Canada than combine with Ohio.

Delaware is more similar to Pennsylvania than Maryland. More people live in the urban north near PA than the rural south...

Maryland/Delaware could join Pennsylvania/New Jersey/New York. To much surprise, I feel like South Carolina is more similar to Georgia than North Carolina. You have the division between Deep and Upper South when it comes to the Carolinas. In this case, I'd put South Carolina with Georgia and North Carolina with Virginia. Overall, I agree with the majority of the map.
