or something else?
Why would this happen?

The great State of Depression. Or Penury. Or Insolvency. Maybe the Commonwealth of Poverty.

Because Atlanta often gets shafted by the state legislature, largely led by southern Georgians.

How about the State of Confusion? Nah, seriously, I don't see any new states coming about anytime soon. My guess is if it did, Puerto Rico would be the most likely candidate.

My money's on Puerto Rico, after a merger of North and South Dakota. I don't think Washington D.C will ever get true statehood, but I think there will be a constitutional amendment to give them the same representation in congress that the smallest states have.

I seriously doubt there are going to be any more states. Hawaii and Alaska were the last two states added, and those geographically are far from being a part of the U.S. mainland. There haven't been new states in over half a century to my knowledge. No need to expect anymore, at least from my point of view.
