One of the richest states in the country with 2 of the richest counties in the country: Howard Country and Montgomery County. It is the southern most state in the Northeast; where Polo's are the state-wide clothingwear.
The state motto is the Free State and everyone loves the Baltimore crabs.
The state consists of the mountainous west and the hickish east while the Baltimore-Washington Corridor keeps the state up from a poor/hickfilled future.
Guy 1: "Where is the best place to live in the country?"
Guy 2: "Maryland, of course. The weather is perfect, the suburbs are affluent, and the Baltimore crabs are divine."
