Create polygons around a central point based on equal population

I am trying to create five regions in the state of Colorado.  These regions are each based on a central point.  I would like to create polygons based on that central point of equal population size.  This is somewhat like Theissen polygons but instead of making the polygon based on its proximity to another point in is based on population values.  The polygons do not need to be quadrilaterals either.  They can be irregular shapes.

Any suggestions for this workflow?
