Sounds more like america than just California.

That it never looses. Just IMO. So to the World. California IS our greatest state and of course by GDP.
i wasn't trying to hate on California or any state. All I'm saying is that a state isn't for everybody. One person may feel it's the greatest place on Earth while another may feel it's the worst place on Earth. All i'm saying is that everybody's experiences are different.

Plus, the states that you mention are perceived like that around the world because of American media. Media has the power and influence a lot of things as well as people's perspectives.
