Rhode Island is a place where the most popular sport is politics because everyone's in it - even the Mafia!
Virtually every member of the Rhode Island General Assembly is a member of the Democratic Party. The only exemption is Governors, which as of late have been all GOP.

NOT AN ISLAND! located in the New England area, is the smallest state with the longest name (Rhode Island and providence plantations) also it has the 2nd largest population density. A nice place to grow up. Home of Del's Lemonade (where the only good kind is lemon), coffee milk, the word bubbler. Has really nice beaches, most Rhode islanders hate the tourists because they crowd our beaches. Most Rhode Islanders are characterized by being Italian and pronouncing their R's like Ah. however most people only do that when they are angry. Is really cold in winter and really hot in summer. Most popular stores in the area are Abercrombie and Hollister.
Rhode Islander:Yeah Im on vacation from Rhode Island.
Ignorant person: Duhh is that an island?
Rhode Islander:...wow you are retarded.

The only place ever where you can say you hate it but keep coming back. Home of the state run by High School kids who only wear abocrombie. The providence place mall is the best place ever and dave and busters is the greatest place ever.Beaches are great if you love beaches and you have to know someone to do anything and if you know someone you can do whatever you want. Oakland Beach is the place and other than hendricken no one cares about your school. Del's water and lemon is the only good flavor. If you dont know what Dunkin Donuts is then you better get out even though most rhode islanders dont know how to spell doughnut. Everyone knows who you are and vice versa. Everyone has a story about every night and you will always remember them. And if your going to eat anywhere please go to federal hill.

The smallest state in the country. Not well known. It is mainly made up of Italian and Portuguese. Home to Johnston(has the highest % of italians in the country).

Capital: Providence
Pop.: Around 1,000,000
Home of the New England Mafia(still very influenced by it).Scituate, Johnston, Cranston, and providence are basically 1960 Italian neighborhoods with modern technology. We have Brooklyn/jersey accents. The rest of the towns have neutral or mass. accents. Creators of the New York system Weiner(different from a hot dog), dels lemonade, coffee milk,clams casino. Hate massholes. We're old school italians not the jersey shore kind. We have some of the best Italian food in the country. None of that fake Irish or Greek "Italian food". There's a bakery and Dunkin' Donuts on every corner. St. Joseph's day and Columbus Day have "feasts" or large celebrations organized by a local church. Everyone goes to them and fights usually break out.
