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

Best state. Why? Not much people. Also beautiful - Lucretia

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

4 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

5 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
