Where can I find a freeware or shareware download for Mac OS X that will allow me to plug in numerical data (e.g., public library funding in a given year) for each U.S. State and get a map of the USA that displays color-coded states? Like the infamous red / blue states map, which also has county breakdowns.

I've tried EuroOffice's Map Chart extension with OpenOffice for Mac and ran into the Python-related bug they warn about; EuroOffice does not come in Mac OS X. Most of the other apps I can find either come in Windows only (such as Microsoft MapPoint), are hideously expensive, or both. I am not looking for 3-D visualization or GIS, just for a way to create a 2-D map that represents numerical data by U.S. state (and county would be nice as well).
I currently am using Mac OS X 10.4.11.
I am willing to pay up to $50 but $25 or less would be preferable.
