Appears to be a graph of the functions y = 5000 - 50x and y = 50x.

But not necessarily the individual leaders.

These days it has more to do with climate change and would not correlate with nuclear threat at all.

That's a cool idea to break it up by states. But I would break it up by the smallest entity that is able to record homicide rates. Many people don't venture outside their immediate communities often or ever. It would be interesting to see where the safest places are.

Thank goodness for that! Can you imagine how long mass shootings would take with muskets?
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray
