I was looking at an American Flag today and realized that it used to look a lot cooler when it had 49 stars. 7 by 7. Beautiful. So, all we as a nation have to do is trim our state count down by one, so we can have an aesthetically pleasing flag. This is an easy task. All you need to do is combine North and South Dakota, call it Dakota, and North and South Carolina, and call it Carolina. They do that anyway.
Why did I combine 2 states, you ask? Well, the new state of Mikeland will have to be created to thank the genius who developed this plan. It'll be in Southern California.
