Perhaps, Nevada and Utah. Another runner up could be Vermont and New York.

For the most part, Texas and Louisiana.

New Mexico and Colorado. The economic conditions, topography, housing styles, and culture, all change rapidly when crossing the state line.

Call me crazy, but I'd say Virginia and West Virginia. Sure, the mountain regions of western Virginia are similar to West Virginia, but that's about it. Overall, Virginia is more similar to North Carolina and Maryland, while West Virginia is more similar to Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

I'll second Colorado and Oklahoma. The really have nothing in common at all. Even the plains of Eastern Colorado are nothing like Oklahoma (dryer, fewer tress, less developed, no red dirt).

Otherwise, there's Oregon and Nevada. Though Eastern Oregon is pretty much identical to Northern Nevada, there are so many extreme differences between the other parts of these states that, as a whole, they seem worlds part. West Virginia and Maryland have little in common too.

Not really. Louisiana bleeds way too much into eastern Texas, which holds a huge chunk of the states population. Texas has less in common with Arkansas and New Mexico than it does Louisiana.

The pop culture images of both states seem remarkably different, but if you familiarize yourself with their history you'll see there are many ties.
