The problem with that state (ultra rural New England), is that they would have a very homogeneous resource base and no markets in which to distribute their milk and timber without paying outrageous tariffs to Boston, Portland, NYC, etc.

It would last a year before it was seized and made a vassal state populated with second class citizens ;-)
