Two peninsulas

This is from Strange Maps, via Weekend Stubble—the states of the U.S. renamed after countries with equivalent GNPs. I like that Florida = Korea, two peninsulas.

In a nice coincidence: Piers Anthony's Xanth books have a map showing that fictional realm to have the shape of Florida...and I think there is at least one book in which Korea is substituted...Ah!! Wikipedia says:

In some instances, Xanth has been compared to other peninsulas. It has been described as similar to the Korean Peninsula with the Gap Chasm being used as a metaphor for the Korean Demilitarized Zone, and the location of Castle Roogna being similar to the location of Seoul, South Korea.
