In my experience, it would be Texas. Seems like everybody from Texas thinks everything in Texas is better than anything anywhere else. I'm sorry, but the world does not revolve around Texas.

I don't hear too many complaints from people in Minnesota, New Hampshire, or Maine.

People in Utah seem pretty content overall, too.

Texans might complain about their state but will also defend it to the death if you are from out of state and bad mouth it, lol.

Iowa. People can't go more than about three sentences without inserting the name of their state in there somehow.

I've lived in NC most of my 52 years of life and my permanent home is there. Your statement is totally untrue. Both Carolinas have a huge amount of state pride. HUGE. I've lived in FL, OH, and MA at various times and enjoyed those states to varying degrees. But I absolutely love living in NC and wouldn't want my home anywhere else. You see the pride there. They've also had a great amount of growth over the last 25-30 years. I'm not sure of your personal experiences or, maybe, personal biases. But the general fact is Carolinians are proud and happy with where they live and it's a growing region as well.

I'd have to say from what I've experienced (in no particular order) Texas, the Carolinas, Ohio, Maine, and California.

Odd ball answer: Wisconsin

I grew up there and bounced around a lot of different cities post college. Wisconsinites have this weird mentality that everything is great, and uniquely Wisconsin. Whenever they move somewhere else, it is always a comparison to back home and how much they miss it. If you are on a plane to Wisconsin with another Wisconsinite, they will talk to you the whole flight and tell you everything that is "only in Wisconsin". They also act like drinking large quantities of cheap beer is unique to the state, and wear shorts in winter is quirky behavior.

Enjoying the view of some glacial lake in Montana?...A Wisconsinite on that trail won't be able to shut up about how great "up north" is, and they could never leave home.

I'm not sure if it's all pride for the state, but it's something.

Not sure if I've answered, but Texas pretty easily.

You got that right. I walked into a bar and said "I heard there's only two things in Texas, steers and Q@##$#s." Got my arse kicked over that joke.
