Most Forgotten U.S. States

The Top Ten
1 Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

I live in Nebraska ;-; Don't worry people are jealous cause Nebraska is like the best

I thought this was a city in Oregon or something

Ohh I thought this was in Russia

This is a state, oh yeah now I remember.

2 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.

I honestly feel bad for Wyoming. It has the lowest population, the 2nd lowest GDP, and the highest suicide rate. Wyoming is a beautiful state with Yellowstone, picturesque high plains and stunning mountains. It really makes me sad, almost to the point of crying, to see a state with all of this beauty being so forgotten and underrated. I want to go here someday.

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.

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!

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.

3 Delaware Delaware is one of the Mid-Atlantic states located in the Northeast megalopolis region of the United States.

I love Delaware!

I did have to tell all my friends what it was, though...

Can someone tell me the capital off the top of their head

I was scrolling thru this and I thought "what's Delaware"

Supposedly the most boring state

4 Montana Montana is a state in the Western region of the United States. The state's name is derived from the Spanish word montaña.

What state is it?

that's in canada right

5 Kentucky Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east south-central region of the United States.

I'll never forget it because KFC was founded there

6 Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

Almost forgot to put it on the list

I forgot that Utah even existed. I even googled "what is Utah? "

Abandoned lol just deserts

Is this even a place?

7 Idaho Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.

What! WHY is Idaho in the top ten most forgotten states in the USA!?

I only know it because potatoes

Yeah this thing is rigd. We all know Idaho is OG

8 New Mexico

It's literally not important enough to get it's own name :I

Wait, this wasn't part of mexico?

Very forgettable

9 New Hampshire

Yes, it is real it is a great place. Just visit and it's very peaceful.

So many people had forgotten it when I quized them to see which states they reamember it made me sad

Nobody important comes from this state

Is this even a real place

10 Iowa Iowa is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Mississippi River on the east and the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River on the west.

I live in iowa. Everyone over passes it. Iowans are nice. We wave at any one, and if youve ever watched "A Field of Dreams" that was shot and takes place in Iowa. Also, we don't have flat lands. Its acually quite hilly. Now I'm ranting. Just remeber, never forget Iowa.

The Newcomers

? Pennsylvania Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.
The Contenders
11 North Dakota North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889.

People in the NE part of merica don't know where this is

12 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

Some people try to forget about WI, because winter time sucks. However, we all suffer together!

Wisco is the best after you get used to it.

How can you forget americas dairyland

I live in Wisconsin and I can't believe a lot of people can forget America's Dairlyland (Even tho I hate cheese XD)

13 Mississippi Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, the state of Alabama to its east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

Yes, Mississippi is forgotten and the most obese state. But since it's forgotten, that means that there isn't very many bad people. Although somebody did throw a cinder block though my 12 yr old daughters window while she was in there. Police couldn't get fingerprints because it was a "rough surface". I mean seriously police, do your job!

14 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

I live in arkansas I know

15 Indiana

Indiana is truly forgotten. Even though it is the host of the Indy 500, and a town that receives around one million visits, Santa Clause. In the southern half of the state there is almost no fields; It is filled with camp sites and a lot of waterfalls. Around NW Indiana there is Dunes State Park where about 10 Million people visit this every year! Also go back to Indianapolis because it his home to some of the most historical monuments. Finally, Indiana is home of one of the most common colleges in the USA, Notre Dame! Why is Indiana so forgetting.

I live in Indiana and I hate how unproblematic and forgotten we are. I wanna live somewhere where there is stuff actually going on ._.

Last time a relative called me before coming to visit from LA, they said "So Indiana is in Chicago? "
It seems that Indiana is always Chicago. What about Indianapolis?!

I can put it as simple as possible.
Indiana: You have to through me to get to the other states

16 Vermont

I am in college and I just found out Vermont is a state.

This is the only time Vermot is ever mentioned in anything

Nobody knows this place

Thought it was a city

17 Maine

One of our sheriff's deputies was shot this summer (during that huge string of cop shootings) and on the news they said three officers/law workers had been murdered that week, guess who they forgot to list. (I live in maine by the way)

It's just too forgettable. Heck it's capital is named after a city in Georgia...Augusta

18 California California is a state in the Southwestern United States. With 39.6 million residents across a total area of about 163,696 square miles (423,970 square kilometers), California is the most populous U.S. state and the third-largest by area. The state capital is Sacramento, and the largest city is Los Angeles. more.

How would anyone forget about the Golden State? Tech Giants in San Francisco, Film Industry in L.A., Beautiful Nature, 40 Million People live in CA, it has the biggest GDP, etc.

How can people forget where Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Universal, Knotts, and San Francisco is at?

How is this even remotely forgettable? Lol, it should be last on the list

This is known by many people, so it isn't unforgivable.

19 Connecticut

People use this state as a highway from New York to Boston and that's it lol. Not much to see here.

I honestly thought this was state was a city when I was a kid.

I live in CT, and I met a person that doesn't even know she's in CT. That's how forgettable we are.

Most forgotten what is it anyway

20 West Virginia West Virginia is a state located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States. It is bordered by Pennsylvania to the north, Maryland to the east and northeast, Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest. West Virginia is the 41st largest state by area, more.

I don't think I even knew this state existed before yesterday... I mean, I probably did from looking at maps, lists, state flags, but forgot about it every time. So it is by far the most forgotten US state.

Still gets lumped in with Virginia... We are a seperate state! Not Western Virginia. West Virginia! Big difference!

21 Minnesota Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

Blame metoo. Al Franken was falsely accused.

Surprised this isn’t on the list. When my mom moved to America she didn’t even know what Minnesota was.

22 Oklahoma

Best state there is we have the highest native Americans population than any other state,go sooner boomers!

23 Michigan

Honestly Michigan ain't that bad when you step outside of Detroit or Flint.

People Probably only know us because of Detroit and our terrible roads

Most people who live outside of the U.S. probably don't know we exist

People don't know we exist unless you say "Detroit".

24 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.

Even forgot on the Forgotten States list

Literally no one remembers it

No one knows where it is

Yo quiet I tksktnt

25 Kansas Kansas is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the area.
