Meh,,, yas are all wrong...

The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations wins.

a) all other States will ignore it, meanwhile battling between themselves, until finally exhausted, only this small yet proud State arises out of the corner, claiming title.

b) it has the longest name of any State - so while leaders of the other States try to just say the name of this State, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations army defeats the rest.

c) Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is the first and only state to decriminalize prostitution - therefore all the fighting men from the other 49 States will want to lay down their arms to join Rhode Island and Providence Plantations army

Any state with:

1) Big military presence
2) Lots of tough blue collar fellas
3) Lots of GUNS in citizen's hands
4) A lot of financial resources and a diverse economy
5) Harsh terrain AND climate
6) Tough, strategic leadership

After thinking it over, I say New Hampshire wins. All the big, powerful states knock each other out with their nuclear weapons and large armies of well armed citizen soldiers. Just a handful of smaller, more tranquil states would be left. But there is still a war to decide, so they agree to settle it rock-paper-scissors. Since New Hampshire is the Granite State, and rock ALWAYS wins rock-paper-scissors (just ask Kramer), well, there you have it.

New Mexico, Georgia, Washington (state), Nevada, and North Dakota

Why? Because they have all the nuclear weapons

New Mexico (2,450), Georgia (2,000), Washington (1,685), Nevada (1,350), and North Dakota (1,140) (I actually thought all of them were in ND)

Plus, New Mexico has the alien technology and UFO's, so they would emerge as the ultimate victors.

I'm gonna say Virginia. We have a large military presence...Quanitico, The pentagon, A.P. Hill, Fort Lee, the greatest naval base in the world, newport news shipyard, oceana airforce base, etc. plus lax gun laws and lots of independant country people willing to fight. Plus, we've been through this before, only 150 years ago

I thought Nevada allows prostitution. Although I guess that's only parts of it.

Your having a quote from the Chippewa/Ojibwe makes me of something. What if you have every state destroy each other and then the Chippewa, Cherokee, Navajo, Sioux, or even non-Indian Yupik pick up the pieces. Like a real version of the Ghost Dance Prophecies. (A part-Cherokee author named William Sanders one had a story like this, although the US was destroyed by a plague instead)

I don't think Minnesota will win, but as long as we kick the crap out of Wisconsin's ass before falling I'm happy.
