It includes the seven MSAs specified on p.61 of Fifth Wave as having become independent of the surrounding states. For those of you who don't have FW handy, those are Atlanta, Chicago, Greater San Francisco (including San Jose, which Freeman shows separately), Miami, New York City, San Diego and Seattle.

Now all we need to produce a complete map of the 2100 US is an official definition of the borders of Cibola.

Very interesting ideas. I had similar thoughts.
