As we see in this vintage map, Florida once occupied most of North America. But one could also make an argument that most of North America was once Scotland, just as absurdist playwright N. F. Simpson
has argued that the Mediterranean could technically fall under Scottish law:
Lawyer: It would be enough to show that it [the Mediterranean] is in what — for the present purposes — can be deemed to be Scotland, and here we might usefully explore the possibility that Scotland, as we know it, may not always have occupied the precise position north of the border that it is commonly thought of as occupying today. We are assisted here by the known fact that the general configuration of the Earth's surface, such as it is, was not arrived at overnight. It is the end product of a not unlengthy process involving widespread upheaval over a period of several millennia, during the course of which things were in a considerable state of flux ... and it should not be difficult to demonstrate as an a priori possibility that Scotland — or what was subsequently to become known as Scotland — might, in one of the remoter periods of geological time, have occupied, however fleetingly, and prior to making its journey northwards to the position on the map that it has occupied ever since, [the Mediterranean]. If so, there would be a strong prima facie case for a reappraisal of the whole situation with a view to bringing the whole matter fairly and squarely within the jurisdiction of the Scottish courts....
Senior: Sounds promising.
Minister: Yes — I think one could give voice to a tentative eureka there.
