I can see arguments for both. Where are most of the rapists? That should be where Castle Black is.

California has to be High Garden because come on.

What about everything else? Where should the Red Keep lie? I'm trying to determine what everyone's house should be.

Which one is the most irrelevant? That's Canada.

Canada's just The North. But I am now extremely tempted to start comparing major Canadian cities to various castles and holds in aSoIaF instead of this exegesis on Book I of Nicomachean Ethics that's due in a few hours.
PS: Calgary is the Dreadfort.

King's Landing needs to be Philly because clearly Booty is lord of Westerbooty

OH OK

I didn't get that this was OB related, and had made a complex chart of municipal relations where primarily economic factors acted in place of the out-and-out warfare of the Seven Kingdoms.

Deleted that shit. Let's start over!

Scrap this thread, that one sounds a lot more interesting!
PS: Where did you place King's Landing? I suppose it has to be DC, right?

If we go politically, DC. Economically, NYC. Douchebagonomically, er, I don't know it is a competitive category.
PS: But if we do it by OB standards, I agree with Philly.

Then I will pretend I am Jon Snow and say Toronto is Winterfell, but I had to take the Black and go to the Castle Black that is Halifax. In the same vein I will go on to pretend about awkward oral sex scenes with freaky redhead wildlings.

Economically, King's landing is horribly broke. I can't see how our national deficit isn't a perfect match!

I was equating economics here with politics there, which in retrospect was silly.

So The Rock is NYC, King's Landing is DC.

I feel like Dorne is culturally independent enough to be Mexico, but if you want to put more weight its common culture with the rest of 7K then I guess Texas.
PS: MAN I THOUGHT I HAD KICKED THIS ASOIAF HABIT.

It's like being a heroin addict in a world with a poppy blight.

I'm going to calm my nerves by reading some Malazan Book of the Fallen (which here will be equated with... oh let's say Crystal Meth)

I'm thinking Chicago could be "The Twins," mainly due to O'Hare being the busiest airport in the world (the place you have to go if you want to cross, get it?)

Although grudge-bearing, intractable Wisconsin governor Scott Walker makes a good Walder Frey and, politically, the union-busting mess resembles the "Red Wedding"

We're totally not the Freys. If anything, we're maybe Harrenhall, where no honest man can rule and everyone who tries gets dragged down.

That sounds more like Detroit to me, or maybe Baltimore
