When a person from state of Illinois, cannot not have a conversation without mentioning the word Illinois, to the point where it becomes utterly annoying.
Tom: How can Jane seriously be that Illinoying?

Joe: I know right? How can Antarctica relate to that supposed "great" state?

Jane: Back in Illinois, we did this and not that.

Cutting her off, John: Seriously, you are Illinoying the crap out of me!

A state that feels more like a large city surrounded by farmland. Most people who live in this state feel that it is divided into two areas--Chicago and Downstate. Although the official state capital is Springfield, just about everything gets done in Chicago. In fact, some out-of-staters actually believe that the capital of Illinois is Chicago. Because of this, and many other things, most "downstaters" resent everything and everyone from Chicago.
Visitor: Where are you from?
Illinois Guy: I'm from Peoria, Illinois.
Visitor: Where's that? Near Chicago?
Illinois Guy: No, it's about 50 miles west of Bloomington.
Visitor: Where's Bloomington?
Illinois Guy: Oh, forget it. It's near Chicago.

Midwest state. East North Central, I guess, if it makes sense. The state is pretty much Chicago, the suburbs and the rest of Northern Illinois, and then the other half is Central Illinois and Southern Illinois (Downstate). Chicago is the largest city and 3rd in the country, and has a lot to offer even if it keeps getting or at least staying dangerous. We're also known for corrupt politics and taxation. The state has a high population, but also has a lot of corn.
I lived in a few States and I also was born in Chicago, Illinois

A state in the Mid-West. There are a lot of misconceptions about Illinois. First, Chicago is NOT the capital, Springfield is. Second, Illinois is pronounced Ill - Uh - Noy, Not Ill - Uh - Noise. Third, Illinois is more than Chicago and a bunch of farms. There are a bunch of cities in Illinois like Peoria, Bloomington, and Springfield. Fourth, A lot of people think Peoria is a shit hole. Well, I live there and honestly, I have to agree. Every day somebody gets shot or stabbed in Peoria.

Illinois is a great place to be. Except if you live in Peoria like me, then it sucks.

Chicago just needs to severe from Illinois and become its own state, most downstaters treat it like one anyways.
