Dayum. I gotta explain this again. The reason Arkansas is link to Mississippi and Louisiana is the Delta region. Oklahoma is not in the Delta. The Delta region is the poorest region in the south. For some reason people on C-D don't travel there so they don't know this.

That's true, I guess Arkansas is slightly divided. Eastern and Southern portions of the state, more in common with Mississippi and Louisiana. Western and Northern portions, Oklahoma and Missouri. I still feel like Little Rock has more in common with Tulsa, Oklahoma or Springfield, Missouri as opposed to Jackson, Mississippi or maybe Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I guess we all have different perceptions.

Finally someone who got the East-West divide correctly and didn't define it by the Mississippi River!

I thought grouping SC with Georgia made more sense too.

On a whole, GA has more in common with SC with Charleston and Savannah, that low country/gullah culture, and plus these are two of the Original 13....why wouldn't they be more similar?

Oh and add in parts of FLA too.

Definitely for the most part. The Upstate isn't too Deep South and has more in common with North Carolina IMO, but the rest of the state is definitely more similar to Georgia.

Little Rock has more in common with Memphis. Little Rock has more in common with Shreveport than Tulsa. When I make a comment on the south it's from LIVING there not visiting. I've lived in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and I still live in Georgia. And yes I've lived in Oklahoma too.

Pennsylvania and NJ cannot mix. NJ with NY maybe. NJ with Philly could work, but not all of PA. Ohio and PA except for Philly can mix.

Maryland and DE can mix, but not with PA or NJ or NY.

You can probably get away with NJ and NY with NE though, and French Canada.

Can you take parts of states? In all honesty I think you could have a state based around Kansas City and Omaha which would be Iowa west of the Des Moines suburbs and south of Sioux City eastern Nebraska (I define east as anything east of highway 281) Eastern Kansas north of Pittsburg and Western Missouri north of Joplin and Springfield. To me this region all seems pretty similar. you can add extreme southeast South dakota to that too. To me Nebraska west of about North Platte doesn't seem to culturally fit though they are proud nebraskans too

Delaware has more in common with Pennsylvania than Maryland.

New York and New Jersey probably have the strongest interstate relationship in the country.

And New England hates New York.
