Although I've never been to the south, pretty sure it's Mississippi.

Louisiana has New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Texas has a ton of large cities.

Even Alabama has Birmingham and Huntsville.

And what does Mississippi have? Biloxi? Jackson? Yazoo City? Columbus? Montgomery? All pretty small, provincial cities.

I would agree with the person that says to look at the states that have the most rural areas and the fewest cities. Real country people like to live in the country.

That being said: Mississippi is the only place where I have ever felt uncomfortable and unsafe if you don't count the neighborhood in Tampa, Florida, we accidently ended up in when we took the wrong exit off the interstate. We all know Florida is not included in this, right? We try to make sure we can make it through Mississippi before dark. We ended up on a road in Arkansas that was big enough for one car going in one direction. There were places to pull over when you were meeting another car. We saw some of the strangest driving on the interstates in Arkansas. If you see someone coming down the ramp on an interstate in Arkansas, you had better move over because they take for granted that you are going to.

There are some really small dirt roads in the mountains of North Carolina too. We were exploring near the Blue Ridge Parkway one day and ended up on a road (or trail) that went through the middle of a meadow and except for the tracks on the grass and the marks on the map, one would never have known it was really a road.

I am curious as to why you ask this question?

My first thought when I saw this thread was Alabama.

When you see those USA polls on school scores, teen pregnancies, illiteracy, and such...it is always at, or near, the top of the list.

Adjacent Southern states are the next ones on the list....but Georgia is pulled out of the list by virtue of the metro Atlanta area.

On the flip side, you guessed it, the better social indicators tend to show up in the Upper Midwest and in New England.

This one needs to come with a poll. It's Mississippi folks. A Mississippi girl don't change her ways for no one! Country to the bone. Legend has it that a man tried to build a city in Mississippi once. They burned him out. They tore down his buildings, ripped up the roads, and then ran him out of the state. They said if he wanted to act like a Yankee, he could go live with them! Down here, we keep it country ya'all! (loud Rebel yell). Some say they had some sweet potato pie afterwards to celebrate, but I think that's just embellishment.

Kentucky is just extremely country in culture overall. It makes sense considering 30% of the state population resides in rural areas, one of the highest percentages in the US.

texas has the highest rural population outside the urban triangle. and even inside the triangle there is a decent amount of rural communities.
