Like (I suspect) many people, I have considered this in the abstract
and I think it would make an awesome poster graphic.  Especially if we
came up with wacky species-esqe names for all 204 states.  There are a
couple obvious ones like Tree, Nest, Starting House (Home?) but that
leaves awesome potential for the other 201.
