Yeah, come down to a state that is near bankrupt, high taxes, high cost of living, double digit unemployment rate, and a state with many illegals working and living in.

And by the way, one thing that is hardly mentioned in these types of threads is; visa's. I am learning this at the moment with my desire to up and leave and move to another country. Not many countries will just allow you to move there. And if they do, it will not be easy to find work because of local laws. For example, i know that in Germany you must possess a certain skill that a local does not have in order to be hired.

Actually, you'd be surprised, this isn't true. My niece up and left for Germany after graduating university, and found a job. I was offered a job in Germany once, and I wasn't even looking for one. Employers can bend the rules if they want you. After 3 years, you're eligible for permanent residency status. With that, you can apply for better jobs.

What's her area of specialty? Did she have a master's? Graduate from an internationally well known school? I'm interested in working there myself, but got the same impression NancyAustin has.

If you don't mind poorer third-world countries, then you'll have a lot more to choose from (any country in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa, or Southest Asia).
Japan is among the better of the more developed Asian countries, but many of the women there want to stay. They think Japan is better than anywhere else and/or don't want to be far from family. Most women have absolutely no interest in foreigners, except to glance at since they aren't used to seeing them, and can't speak English, but it works out because there are so many people in the cities.

So, I'd actually argue a city with a diverse population in your home country may be a better bet to avoid complications and if your tastes change, or you aren't particular about ethnicity in the first place, you'll have more options. Cities like New York, London, Toronto, Vancouver, LA, Melbourne, Sydney, etc.
