I've also heard North Carolina is vastly different from every other state in the union

Yes. NC is definitely different (read: the better Carolina).

This is probably the reason they split back in the early 1700's.

Actually South Carolina was the "better" Carolina back then. They had Charleston. Virginia had the Chesapeake. We were a void between the two prominent states. But in the 20th Century, we turned on the afterburners and haven't looked back sense. Hello New South!

Indeed. It is better for too many reasons to list.

South Carolina: To small for a country, to big for an asylum.

North Carolina: A vale of humility between two mountains of conceit

This is so true. Here's the results from the 1790 census.

15 largest US cities (1790 census)
1. New York NY 49,401
2. Philadelphia PA 28,522
3. Boston MA 18,320
4. Charleston SC 16,359
5. Baltimore MD 13,503
6. Providence RI 6,380
7. New Haven CT 4,487
8. Richmond VA 3,761
9. Albany NY 3,498
10. New Bedford MA 3,313
11. Norfolk VA 2,959
12. Hartford CT 2,683
13. Portland ME 2,233
14. Worcester MA 2,095
15. Springfield MA 1,574
Largest U.S. Cities, 1790

IMO (and I'm probably in the minority on this thread) there's very little difference between NC and SC by today's standards. NC has been slightly more influenced by transplants. Still though, both states are really the same when it comes to culture and core beliefs.
