Most ghetto state in the USA. Seriously, half the state is a giant ghetto. PG County, Baltimore, Western Maryland (AKA Apalachia), eastern Montgomery County, Northern Charles County. It is run by an overbearing government with high taxes, excessive regulations, and there's tons of lawyers, so nothing ever gets done. Like most places, there are some rich people there, but for the ones that have a choice (in the DC area for example), most of them only live there because the road system is too insufficient for them to live in Virginia and still get to work at a reasonable time. Or in the case of Potomac and Chevy Chase, their kids go to private schools and they're so rich they could care less how much they pay in taxes.
Marylander: "Komissar Omalley is raising taxes and some lawyers sued to stop construction of the ICC freeway again."
Virginian: "What do you expect in the People's Republic of Maryland?"
