A group of researchers at Kansas State University came up tongue-in-cheek with maps of the U.S. distribution of the Seven Deadly Sins.  Their maps of Greed, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Gluttony and Lust are shown above.  The red parts of the maps are the most devilish; the green parts the most saintly.  The seventh deadly sin is Pride, which they mapped as an overlay of these six.  You can see the map of Pride if you click on one of the links below.
