Joel Garreau book from 1981 suggesting that there are 9 different regional cultures covering the US, Canada, and Mexico, and that maybe it would make sense to draw national boundaries that way...

Garreau argued that everything from politics to Urban Planning must be redesigned to match the evolving regional or bio-regional sensibilities that now matter more to people than national and international borders..The theory of Bioregional Democracy and Urban Secession owe much to his analysis, as does the theory of Free Trade... A parallel impact has been to cast doubt on the role of American state and Canadian provincial governments, especially vis a vis these keystone cities. (more detailed summary)

Related: the US population is clustered mostly in 11 City Region-s.

Or maybe make 50 states of roughly equal population?
