Caption: An Aussie coworker had to draw a full map of the USA, complete with states and their capitals. How'd she do?

Nebraskaville would be an awesome state capital.

The Canadian head is the best part.

And maybe the most accurate.

I apparently live in North Carolina just north or Niagra Falls. Why didn't anyone tell me?

At least you're on the map. Apparently Vermont is a figment of my imagination!

Apparently, Cincinatti (sic) is a state and Denver is the capital.

NB: It really is spelled Cincinnati, folks. I still grit my teeth when I see it spelled wrong, despite having left there in 1992.

Do people in New Hampshire live in holes in the ground?

Don't feel bad, I just lost my parents due to the sudden disappearance of Tennessee.

I'm surprised Indianna (sic) made the cut.

I love the name Louisiannapolis. Baton Rouge should apply for a name change.

I'm am impressed that she got Sacramento, California correct.

However I'm not sure if the "state" of New Orleans (on top of Florida on this map) would even accept Detroit as their capital. Detroit would probably be thrilled to be on the south Atlantic, instead of the much cooler Michigan that it is currently in, though.

Technically? I'd say it just downright isn't.

That's an exceptionally good effort. We only have one Northern Territory, though.
And Canberra and Hobart are a little off, but then, they often are.

By current US standards she would simultaneously be awarded an A and be a candidate for No Child Left Behind and/or The Gifted Program.

YMMV.

Well, I do, but I don't think it's mandatory. Yet.
