a little excessive Georgia, really

fact: Georgia has 158 counties and California has 58.  Georgia’s population is 9.6 million, California’s population is 33.8 million.  A little excessive Georgia?  I think so.  A native Georgian told me that Georgia has a law that they can only have so many counties in the state.  This has caused problems in Fulton county because the north side is very affluent and the city of Atlanta (the south part) seems to use all the funds for their own personal use without contributing to the honey pot.  Wow.  I go through 3 different counties to get to church, and it’s only 15 miles away!  Apparently in junior high here everybody has to learn all the counties names and where they are.  I’d never make it!

Here’s a little visual of what I’ve been having a hard time wrapping my head around:

and a map of California:

Keep in mind the size of these states.  Do you see what I mean?!

    I heard that one of the states on the east coast requires the county to be no larger than a horse could ride across in a day.
