SpectralOwl

The Top Ten

1 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.

Immediately every single state is on this list. If you think every state is least important, you probably are just a whiner. There's honestly at least ONE good thing about each state, do we have to know it all the time? No. But there shouldn't be so much bile against the US just because. - Nonpointed

I don't know how to feel about the list - Swellow

It could be it's own country that doesn't stop the problem with Yellowstone - Spiritualsavedboy

Umm Yellowstone? - Randomator

2 Mississippi Mississippi

I think those who live here would disagree. This is one of a few U.S. states I have my heart set on visiting. - Britgirl

Well they are important in the furniture industry - Spiritualsavedboy

Why does everyone hate mississippi?
worst state? most useless state? really? - EliHbk

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

What happens there?

4 Hawaii Hawaii Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state of the United States of America, receiving statehood on August 21, 1959.

Look, I know I might get hate for this but was it ever really necessary to have Hawaii as a state? Having a government is bad enough and except for Barack Obama's birthdate controversy, there wasn's any political contributions about Hawaii recently. - Seventies-Music-Fan

It was necessary- this is one of the key factors preventing the US from being one of the ugliest countries in the world - SoldierOfFortune

It's good for tourism and it's proximity to Asia so... - Randomator

5 North Dakota North Dakota North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889.

North Dakota is so unimportant that is actually important because of that - LarrytheFairy

6 New Mexico New Mexico

Yeah, who in the heck likes snow skiing? And who would ever find rock climbing or whitewater rafting interesting. Fly fishing, forget it. Hiking? Backpacking? Trail Bike riding? Flying across the sky in a hot-air balloon? OH, I know! You want to get plastered in a bar all night, or maybe just sit sullenly with other edgy teens on a street corner. Cool; please go to Hollywood or NYC, and stay there.

So boring - DatRabidSlushie

7 New Hampshire New Hampshire

Pfft, without New Hampshire the constitution wouldn't have been ratified. - SoldierOfFortune

Yeah there's nothing much in Kansas outside of Wichita. Trust me I live here. At least it produces a lot of wheat - Randomator

Yes, Kansas is not important at all I guess, unless you like to eat food. Because they grow so much food on NYC.
