America’s Dairyland. The Badger State and unfortunately similar to Michigan or Minnesota. A state of the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes region bordering Lake Michigan, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and the putrid Toll Roads of Illinois to the south. Milwaukee is the largest city with some 580,000 in the city in a greater metro area of 1.6 million, just 90-miles north of Chicago. Madison is the 2nd largest city with some 220,000 people and is a nice college town as the main campus to UW. Other cities include Green Bay, Kenosha, Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Eau Clair and La Crosse. The rest of Wisconsin is very low key and conservative. It was the birthplace of American liberalism, thanks to the the La Follete family and the Progressive movement. Wisconsin often supports the Democrat party in national elections.

There are a few basic things almost everyone associates with Wisconsin: the Packers, Beer, Bratwursts and cheese. Wisconsinites cheer for the Green Bay Packers as though it is a religion or something and are called “Cheeseheads. Ironically, Green Bay is the smallest NFL market by far. However, Wisconsin has tons of bars and probably the most per-capita of any state. Wisconsin consumes more alcohol and has a higher people-to-bar ratio then any other state. It is not surprising that Milwaukee is a major beer producer. Many of its 5.7 million residents (ranking 19th in population) are descendants of Nordic Europeans where the people talk with a funny accent similar to Minnesota or Michigan. Natives pronounce the 2nd syllable in their state’s name as if it is coming from their nose. Words that end in “ike” are pronounced “oik” and words that have a short-A, like “bag” are pronounced “beg.” Wisconsin is one of those cold, northern Great Lakes states where fishing, hunting, snomobiling or skiing is popular in the winter. Many “downstate” residents have a cabin in Northern Wisconsin near one of the states THOUSANDS of lakes—more than most states. In fact, many people from the Chicago area to the south, frequently visit Lake Geneva to get away from the city. It may be a cold state but the women are HOT! Many of them can be seen around the UW campus in Madison. Try being there in the summer. Wisconsin Dells is the state’s largest tourist attraction and perhaps only amusement park while House on the Rock, in the town of Spring Green is also popular. Baraboo has a large circus museum.

It is known as “America’s Dairy Land” because it produces more cheese and dairy products per-capita than any state (but California leads the nation in overall production). As a result, Wisconsin is an important state in food processing. Oscar Meyer, Kraft and Johnsonville Brats have large plants in the state while Milwaukee is a major beer producer. The state’s largest industrial center is Milwaukee and is a major producer of tools, machinery, and Harley Davidsons. Wisconsin is a progressive state—much more so than its northern and eastern neighbor of Michigan and almost as much so as Minnesota. It has good schools and its teachers are among the highest paid in the country.

If the cold is the worst thing about this state, then it must be pretty good to live.
Despite its Upper Midwest location, WISCONSIN is a very desent state to live if you can take the cold. I wouldn’t live there just for this reason, but it is a very good state nonetheless.

A state very similar to Michigan and (unfortuantly) Illinios. Wisconsin is, for some reason, famous for it's cheese. I wouldn't have a fucking clue because the only cheese I eat is the stuff on my burgers. The southern part of the state is mostly suburbs and cities. The largest city of Milwaukee, is actually quite boring. They make Miller beer, Harley motorcycles, and light switches. Milwaukee has a shitty pro-basketball team, the Bucks, an up-and-coming baseball team, the Brewers, and decent college Basketball teams, UWM and Marqutte.

The central part of the state is mainly farm land. Evinrude and Mercury outboard motors are made in central WI.

The north is pure back-coutry. Vilas and Oneida countys are the biggest examples of such. In the winter snowmobiling possibilies are endless, much like the U.P. of Michigan.

All in all, Wisconsion kicks ass. especially the north.
I'd take WI over Florida anyday. But I'd probably take the U.P. over Wisconsin.

Illinois' Largest State Park. A great place to visit when you've done all the cool things in Chicago.
"Hey, let's get in the VistaCruiser and go to Wisconsin this weekend: they still have trees!"

Wisconsin- Often thought of a place filled with cheese and/or lakes, studies have shown Wisconsin doesn't exist. It is actually somewhat akin to unicorns, Canada, and Republicans.
"I was born in Wisconsin."
"Haha, dude I didn't just fall off the turnip truck yesterday, I know Wisconsin doesn't exist. Just like Canada. And Republicans."

Was like Czechoslovakia, that is before communism came to an end, and is now worse. Has nice parts but suffers from childish inferiority complex to Illinois. That is silly, because while Chicago is a fine town, the rest of Illinois is a wasteland.
Hey, it's Wisconsin. It like going to Czechoslovakia, we'll zip in we'll zip out.

A state that is somehow more populated than Minnesota, but has about 100 times less to offer the world. They also have a total douchebag as a governor who only answers to his corporate overlords. I really feel bad for the people that got screwed by his actions. You are welcome to move to Illinois, where human beings are actually valued.

They have an NFL team in a town that really has no business having one (hey, let's give one to every mediocre small-sized town while we are at it). Their largest city is a suburb of Chicago. The state is overshadowed by such regional "power-players" as Indiana and Michigan.

Yes, I am aware that it has beer and fireworks. Big fuckin deal... so does every state in the U.S. South, and that is the nation's anus. Beer an Fireworks are not a measure of excellence.

Wisconsin does have some good things though. Their school system was one of the best in the country, but I am sure Scott Walker will have none of that in the future. Madison is kind of pretty, and cheese curds cannot be beat.
Bill: Hey let's go to Wisconsin

Ted: Cool, what are we going to do there?

Bill: um... they have beer and fireworks.

Ted: Safeway has beer too.

Bill: Yes... that is true.

Ted: ...and wtf are we going to do with fireworks? Besides there are women in THIS state that DON'T have facial hair... let's go set off some of them.

Bill: True... fuck Wisconsin.
