World Population in USA-Equivalent regions

World Population in USA-Equivalent regions
The population data for the map comes from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center‘s gridded world population dataset, which breaks the world’s population down into tiny cells measuring about 3 miles x 3 miles. The borders shown here are my best attempt at splitting the population up evenly.

The largest of the 22 pieces has an area of nearly 7 million square miles, about twice the size of the U.S. At the other extreme, the smallest region measures only 125,000 square miles, about the size of New Mexico.
