Omaha seems like a nice city, so Nebraska.

Also, Oklahoma is not the Midwest; it is Southern Plains.

Omaha is a great city - I would pick Nebraska first, and then Kansas. Kansas has some great cities as well. It's way too easy to rip on these states, and it's often done by people who have never been there. Good cities and good people.

Oklahoma, Kansas, Neb. All of them have their strengths but Oklahoma is easily the most beautiful. Oklahoma has lots of beautiful lakes. Go to google images and type in image searches for Ouchita mountains, Oklahoma mountains, grand lake, talhina drive, etc. It's absolutely beautiful. Oklahoma has the 2nd most diversity in wildlife in the US, 2nd only to Texas. All states are somewhat of transition states where the eastern parts are green and wet and the western parts are more desert and flat. OKC has one of the best economies in the country and is rapidly improving. Tulsa has very natural beauty. The biggest downfall to Oklahoma is the roads suck. Kansas recently was voted the nations best roads. Overland Park, Lenexa and Olathe are all places I'd be happy living though.

Pretty much this. Kansas and Nebraska retain a little bit of the Midwestern culture I prefer (lacking other attractors) over Oklahoma. I'd probably go Lincoln/Omaha (both underrated), and living in KC MO wouldn't be bad at all. OK and KS have some of the blandest metros I've ever spent time in, I'm not sure this can be said nicely, just my experience. Topeka, Wichita, OKC, Tulsa, not for me. Brutal temperature extremes in all three of these states. That said, this region is certainly underrated and filled with some fine folks and a lot more natural beauty all-around than given credit for, as well as some intellectual enclaves.

I'd live in either one. They aren't as bad as people make them out to be.
For Oklahoma, I could easily live in OKC or Tulsa even though they're a little on the bland side.
For Nebraska, Omaha is a nicer city than most suggest. And it's not just a tiny town.
For Kansas, I think Wichita and the Kansas City, MO suburbs are a bit bland, but livable.

In order: Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas

Nebraska, and it would have to be in Omaha as it's a pretty cool city. I'll pass on OK and KS.
