About This Quiz

A fun fact about the United States of America that not many people know: no American president has ever lived their entire life without the nation adding another state to the Union. From the original thirteen colonies becoming states in the lifetimes of the first few presidents all the way to Alaska and Hawaii joining the Union in the 1950's, this has held up from 1776 until today. If no new state is added in the lifetime of Barack Obama, he will be the first president to break the rule - though it is looking increasingly likely that the Puerto Rico statehood movement will gain traction, and since President Obama is only 57, they have some time to make things happen!

In the meantime, there are still plenty of states for a citizen, legal resident, or tourist to choose from. A few of them may be similar in this or that way, but no two are entirely alike. They have their own cultures, their own climates, their own legal systems, and their own opportunities and downsides. Some of them are pretty hard to get to, and others are very big, so if you choose the wrong one, fixing it is pretty expensive. Take this quiz to help you figure out which state suits you perfectly!
