Not accurate. In reality, Minnesota and Wisconsin are the "rivals" in the Upper Midwest, although it's really just a sports rivalry.

In Minnesota, Iowa isn't even really thought about at all. It's just that nebulous stretch of land "somewhere down there"...

In all fairness, you've used the correct word: perceived. That's because there are a lot of clueless people out there who attempt to generalize an entire population based on what they believe to know. In addition and despite the fact that Arizona is populated by a large community of ex-Californians, there were several residents of AZ who were quite fed up with California sticking its nose into Arizona politics and threatening boycotts, especially when it came to their misinterpretations of SB1070. Despite that, yes, Arizonans enjoy California and Californians. Your idea that Arizona hates California is ridiculous; however, many Arizonans can agree that the cost of living there is a little outrageous.

even more common to hate on Mass-holes in New Hampshire. I call it biting the hand that feeds them. It's just rural scapegoating against urban folk, "yawn".

Minnesota and Wisconsin; it's an intense, yet friendly rivalry that goes beyond sports.

Illinois and Wisconsin; Wisconsin hates Illinois, while Illinois is indifferent to Wisconsin. New York and Pennsylvania have a similar dynamic.

New York and New Jersey; mutual hate.

New York and New Jersey are the two most connected states in the country. Don't think there's hate there. More like a big brother/little brother dynamic that can turn feisty, but is ultimately rooted in respect.

The enmity between NC and SC is so pervasive and has been going on longer than we've been alive. Just one of the many issues that can stir passionate debate in the Carolinas is simply one question: where was Andrew Jackson born?

Barbecue is another very heated topic between the Carolinas (SC uses a mustard base; NC will either use a ketchup base or vinegar base depending on where you are in the state). This debate runs as an undercurrent to this interview:
