I am a Texan by birth but am living in Oklahoma temporarlily. Tulsa is much prettier than any big texas city, and the poverty rate in Oklahoma is not nearly as bad as Texas' (last I heard Texas has the worst poverty and pollution in the nation). Texans tend to have very backwards political views, even in "progressive" Austin. "Liberal" in Texas means you don't agree with the execution of mentally retarded people, oppose anti-sodomy laws, and don't think people should be allowed to carry around fully auto machine guns. The only substantive difference between OK and TX is that TX has about 28 million people, and Oklahoma little over 3 million.
Prettier than Texas for the most part, much more mountainous on average. Nicer lakes. More of a "western", forward-looking political spirit than the arrogant, backwards political paradigm in Texas.

Oklahoma is a state in the central south. Oklahoma is shaped like a pot and its panhandle has a flat elevation (aka mesa) called the Black Mesa. This state has 77 counties, one of which is at the tip of the panhandle called Cimarron County. Oklahoma borders Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, and Texas. This state isn't as horrible as others say it is. However, Oklahoma is the state with the most obese people.
Oklahoma's 2010 census estimate was around 3,751,351.
It is said to be boring, small, and full of hillbillies. This is an OPINION. In my opinion, Oklahoma is filled with many people of many races and cultures, is small enough for a smaller amount of crime, and sometimes too dry. This doesn't mean it is always hot. It snows around every other year or two. Oklahoma's capital is Oklahoma city. For more information on Oklahoma visit Wikipedia. If you want facts don't trust ALL of these results.
People who say "Everyone in Oklahoma is a hillbilly- I have to live here!" insulted themselves because they are in Oklahoma.

"Labor Conquers All Things" is Oklahoma's motto.

oklahoma is located in the midwestern part of the u.s.
despite common assumption, oklahoma does have the wichita mountains and mount scott which is located near lawton, oklahoma. the beer percentage there as of Aug 1, 2004 is still 3%. so that is why many kids go to Texas to get they're drinks where it is 6%.
but they also have penny beer nights which is an excellent way to spend a Friday night.
the okc murrah building memorial is one of the most solemn places in american history..so go pay your respects if you're ever in town. it's very informative and respectful to the victims.
a bunch of definitions by people who've never been in oklahoma.

that's pretty stupid.

at least in oklahoma, if you find a handful of cool people, you know they're real and not like the millions of scenesters plaguing places like, say orlando.

penny beer night in oklahoma got me a DUI. but it was worth it, because the case was thrown out. thx OK!

the hicks in georgia are worse..simply because there are more of them and they're rude and stupid.

one good thing about OK, out of the many bad things, is the 1/2 and 1/2 store. you can find a prada dress there for $20 who there cares about big stupid names?

A place filled with people who, while not on average intelligent, not completely retarded like others here tend to think. I live in a suburb of the city of Oklahoma City, called Midwest City. The city isn't big, but it has things there that make it worth visiting. Oklahoma is not filled with rednecks or hicks. Yes, there are rednecks and hicks here, but in the places like OKC, it's about the same as places like Colorado or Illinois.
Also, Carl Albert kicks the majority of other schools in the south's ass.
