DC would be the executive capital, then put congress in the ghost town Santa Cruz Texas right along the Rio Grande, then put the Supreme Court in Florida someplace and call the city Mann.

Executive and Cabinet level departments: Keep D.C. and the Pentagon as the location for those (Pentagon would still only house Department of Defense). I Think D.C's Central location in relation to the South Atlantic and Mid-Atlantic States gives it an upper edge in having a stable workforce population easily available to work in the Executive and Cabinet level Departments, which are required for such since those cabinet level departments seem to have the bulk of the workforce in the federal government under them.

Legislative: Arapaho, District of Liberty. I named it Arapaho after the local Indians to pay tribute to their heritage, and the district was District of Liberty because the legislative branch authored the Constitution, which is supposed to protect our liberty. Location: 20 miles due South of Ellsworth, Nebraska in the middle of a giant ranch. I chose a new district in the middle of nowhere for the legislative branch because the legislative branch can meet just about anywhere since everyone comes from just about anywhere in the country to go to D.C. to be in Congress, and I chose Ellsworth, Nebraska because it's the most centrally located state in the Midwest other than Kansas and in the part of the state that's closest to Denver.

Judicial: Mimosa, District of Justice. I named it after the Mimosa tree, which is a really beautiful tree that I think is pretty original as a town name, and I named it the district of justice after the judicial branch being the center of justice. Location: 10 miles East/Northeast of Epps, Louisiana, near Tallulah in the North Louisiana Delta. This place, like the legislative district, wouldn't really require it to be very close to population centers, as it would just have the Supreme Court of the United States and not all district courts, but it is closer to the district courts and to an international airport, New Orleans. I chose that location to keep the judicial since it's centrally located in relation to many appeals court courthouses and is in the most beautiful flyover country in America, the Mississippi Delta. Best climate, other than some summers, mostly friendly people, good connections with the old social order of the old south, which has produced plenty of politicians and judges. Near New Orleans, which has one of the most beautiful U.S. Court of Appeals district courthouses, one of the richest, deepest culture in America, is centrally located in relation to two of the fastest growing states, Texas and Florida, makes a good stopover when visiting the Delta, etc.
