I'd probably just merge some counties together in states where they're fairly small.

Something like this:

I don't love the idea of merging big urban counties which already have lots of people with many small rural counties. And I don't love that county gore with Topeka stretching to the KC suburbs.

Counties already have both urban areas and rural areas in them.  For example, Sedgwick County has Wichita, but it also has Clearwater, Cheney, and Bentley.  What problem do you foresee that you wouldn't like?

Why shouldn't Topeka's county extend to the edge of the KC suburbs?  I chose that particular boundary precisely because Leavenworth County doesn't really have much "KC suburbs" in it at all—just Lansing, really, and that's pushing the definition of a suburb.

At any rate, it was a quick-and-dirty revamp.  My point is just that I'd prefer larger counties like that.

Wichita should be consolidated with Sedgwick County, creating city with many rural areas.
