Are we serious here or are we joking? It should be easy to tell.

A state is the term used for a (partially) self-governing federal region (a generic term is "federated state") in the United States of America and other countries (for example, the United Mexican States). Other federal nations may refer to their federated states differently (e.g. as "provinces" or "regions").

Some Conservatives don't recognize that other countries' federated states may also be called "states" (or that some other nations may also refer to their own "united states"). On the other hand, Liberals know and acknowledge that other countries have states and are united. Some American states of note are as follows:

Good States

Bad States
