My vote goes to Idaho, North Dakota, or maybe Oregon?
Haha I'm all verklempt! Discuss amoungst yourselves
You want your oil, and your food, but you don't want to think about where it comes from.
Nor can you imagine that anyone else enjoys a lifestyle dissimilar from yours. Some people like hunting, fishing, and a view of the horizon uncluttered with smokestacks and some burned-out warehouse district. We also like rivers you can drink from, or at least fish in.
But never mind any other opinions; just keep telling yourself that its THE REST OF THE COUNTRY that's occupied by narrow-minded bigots.

I have to agree in all honesty that CA has the economic and cultural hub of America.
Seriously though, "even" the loss of Kansas would wreck the nation.
Kansas is the heart of wheat and cattle country. Every one farmworker there feeds 300 people worldwide. And not california raisins either; staples like wheat and beef.
If Kansas disappeared from the map, in addition to being a donut, the USA would suddenly not have food for 150 million of its people.
Which underscores my original post; the O.P. in which I said that we cannot survive without any of the states.
Lack of Rhode Island and Delaware would kill the insurance and incorporation business----and I'd have no where to send my credit card payments!
