How Japan Sees America

I have no idea what the Japanese text says, it could be deeply offensive for all I know. In fact, I know almost nothing about this map but I love the weird geography of it. Especially Michigan.
According to my best sources, it has something to do with gaming, specifically Far East of Eden: The Fourth Apocalypse. The original source is from the Yukihime site, which does not load for me.

The Japanese text is simply the transliteration of the place names - why on earth would it be "deeply offensive"?

Well, there's also the title text - I don't know what that says. If you've ever seen the Atlas of Prejudice there's lots of maps out there about how one country sees others. They're often full of mean spirited, lazy stereotypes.
