Arizona Is the Sunniest State. Mississippi Is the Fattest. Maps of State Superlatives

Want to know what you should be most proud of in your state? Want to mock people from another state? These two maps will help you. The map on top, by Ilya Gerner, gives positive characteristics of states. The bottom, by the Cartographic Research Lab, shows what states are "the worst at." That's a slight misnomer, as Oklahoma isn't the "worst" at female criminals. It's actually the best at them. But you get the drift: Oklahoma has the most female criminals. Now you can feel geographically superior about something, no matter where you live.
