Can You Assign Different Colors to Areas NOT based on their Attributes?

I have a shape file with a bunch of polygons bordering each other (think like a bunch of counties in a state). I would like to shade them in different colors so you can differentiate them easy. However, these different colors do not need to be based on any attribute whatsoever. How can I do this in ArcMap?


If you're confused what I mean, think like the typical state map like this. The states are all different colors so you can differentiate them, but the colors have no inherent meaning. They only use 4 to 5 colors, so you don't get a rainbow map. Is there a name for this type of color scheme?
