High stress, high population density, higher overall COL, more "keeping up with the Jones" etc. NH is much more laid back than MA for instance and NH has a population density that is about 1/6 as much.

Yep, I totally agree. I think CT is the only real uptight state though, since it's small with a high population density and expensive to live. No other state is really completely like that, for the most part.
