United States Regions

For ease of talking about different parts of the United States, the country is sometimes broken up into regions. There is no officially defined regional breakdown. We’ve broken up our US regions list and map into 4 main regions. We have also included sub-regions to make it a little easier. Those sub-regions help group states that have similar culture, climate, and geography.
