2 Wyoming Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Wyoming is not actually a state. The government is faking the existence of Wyoming to cover up for something big, Area 58. Anyone that says that Wyoming is real or they have been there is lying or has been paid off my the government. I am just uncovering the truth.

I played Chandler's 6-minute state game and spent 4 of the minutes trying to remember this state. I didn't win, to say the least.

Only know Wyoming is a state because I went to it for the eclipse and I live in Colorado

When I try to think of states I always forget, I think of Montana (memorable for Hannah) and Utah (Mormons! ). That being said, I truly had forgotten about the existance of Wyoming prior to seeing this. WY wins for me!

12 Mississippi Mississippi

Yes, Mississippi is forgotten and the most obese state. But since it's forgotten, that means that there isn't very many bad people.

I mean seriously police, do your job!
