I’m sure someone can do better.
One of the clearest regional differences in the U.S. can found by tracking the words people use to refer to soft drinks, which is in fact the map you saw at the top of this story. Pop or soda, or even Coke, these small linguistic differences are not as small as we might think. While “soda” commands the Northeast and West Coast (green) and “pop” is in between (black), “Coke” reigns in the south (turquoise). These small distinctions can often act as touchstones for larger cultural differences.

I live vaguely in a “Coke” region, surrounded largely by “pop.” I have never said either, and I get vaguely offended when soda is described as pop or Coke (unless it’s actually Coke). My cousins (who live in the “pop” region of Kentucky) used it call every soda Coke, even if it was 7-Up. Drove me crazy. Long story short: soda is the correct term. Or carbonated beverage or soft drink, if brevity is not your thing.
WHAT THE FUCK IS POP?
