Imagine there’s no countries.  I wonder if you can (still see where they would be based on a map of unemployment rates)?

You can very clearly see the national boundaries of the countries currently experiencing debt-driven financial crises, even though this data is mapped by province.  In the U.S., California and Arizona have had similar problems with state government debt.  But, Arizona’s unemployment rate is now on par with the national average (8.2%), while California lags far behind (10.7%).  Why might that be?
