List of All US States of America

Margaret Thatcher said “Europe Was Created by History. America Was Created by Philosophy” and it looks like staying that way – the “United States of Europe” is further away from reality than ever following Brexit. Which means each country won’t be able to give themselves a fun epithet like all US States. So sadly no Britain – the Rainy State, or France – the Gourmet State.
