The Alaska puzzle puzzle

You know those wood map puzzles we all had as kids (well, mine was cardboard because we were poor)... anyway, they're a nightmare to manufacture; Rhode Island is too small, the panhandles of Idaho and Oklahoma break easily etc.. So I understand if the puzzle companies have to simplify the borders a bit. A bit. But sometimes they go too far. Check out this Alaska puzzle piece I saw at Target yesterday. That's the worst map of Alaska I've ever seen. And New Mexico's not much better—apparently the map designer never heard of the Gadsden Purchase.
