^ using that map, I'm not sure how anything can be close to the embodyment of anything, especially Atlantic and North Central.

I mean, Maine or West Virginia or Florida? Ohio, Minnesota, or Nebraska? All very different.

Or California vs Alaska, I guess. Though KY and TX are pretty different (the TX problem, wherever you place it).

Of course this is just my opinion.
To be honest it was a somewhat random choice, since I am not super familiar with the midwest. I felt that Chicago, while being the premier city of the Midwest, might because of that also be atypical of the Midwest. I also kind of feel that way about NYC and the Northeast.

I picked Indiana since it didn't seem to rural, like Iowa or Kansas, or to rust belty, like how I picture Michigan, but has some of both. I also considered putting Ohio or Wisconsin.
