Top Ten Least Important U.S. States


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

The only good thing in the state is Yellowstone National Park. The rest is just... land.

The lower the state on the list, the more important it is.

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

Why? What famous American attractions exist in Mississippi off the top of your head and not some travel guide? - Jafaree

Racist and ignorant (same thing). A state that leeches of the federal government and therefore other states.

Well they are important in the furniture industry - Spiritualsavedboy

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

3 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

Why is it even part of the US, anyway

HOW IS THIS ON THE LIST this state is THE HIGHLIGHT of my life.

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

This Comment Section Is As Empty As The State

What happens there?

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.

This should be #1

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

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

How is this 37? it is literally the least important state! At least the states no one lives in like Wyoming and Montana have beautiful mountains, Delaware is just a tiny piece of land that few people live in with no identifiable features or quirks and has no cultural significance whatsoever

Excuse me, but this is the First State!
Least important state is Massachusetts.

7 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

8 Alaska Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

Gold,animals,coal, should I say anymore - Spiritualsavedboy

9 New Hampshire New Hampshire

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

This state is full of insuluar hillbillies especially North of Concord. The whole Upper Valley is a waste of space where you have angry locals who think being terse is a way of life and rich liberals who rule from Hanover.

New Hampshire was the first colony to declare their independance and the place where the thing was sighnd to end the war beween Japan and Russia (sorry for the bad spelling)

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