The 50 States of America exist due to the fact that the states have their own governments(which they can make their own choices without America's permission, depending the subject matter). The States, however, do not have the same power as a country, for which they can be over whelmed by the superior power. But only a few still have the power to do so and are greatly feared. These states are Texas, Vermont, Alaska, and Hawaii. To America, they provide various powers and abilities that makes him “50 Strong.” This happens when they merge their spirits with his. America only resorts to this when he’s on the battle field, otherwise he can handle his opponents alone.The Grand 13: The Original 13 Colonies:
These 13 are the strongest of the 50 even though none of them are the mentioned states that share the power of a country. Their jobs are to test any new territory who qualifies to be a state and these tests are brutal. As the 13, they are given higher tasks by Father America from spy work or settling disputes in territories. These 13 should be feared when their weapons are drawn.Delaware, The First State, the Small Wonder, Blue Hen State, the Diamond State
He takes this role very seriously. He is looked on as the “big brother” to all of the states and is indeed the strongest of the 50, except to the few who were countries themselves. He is very loyal to Father America and this loyalty was proven during the American Civil War when he snapped at South Carolina for being a traitor and fool; and when he finally defeated Virginia. He is quite intelligent and has led his siblings many times including the tragedy of 9/11. He sticks to the rules, even surprisingly, questions motives when they are not ethical. He doesn’t have a good sense of humor and whenever he tries to crack a joke, it is usually a bad pun. You are more likely to see him sitting in his study reading a book or chatting with his closest friend, Virginia.
Human Name: John Rodney
Mics: Wears glasses
Birthday: December 7, 1787
Test: Delaware tests everything what the territory has learned from the previous tests from physical strength to the strength of one’s will. In his eyes, it’s important to keep a leveled head even undergoing sever amounts of stress and anxiety.
Political Party: Democrat
Motto: Liberty and IndependencePennsylvania, Key Stone State, Quaker State
He takes pride for not just being the second state but being the "birth place" of the Revolution. He loves the attention since he holds many events from historical to sports. He did have trouble in the past with the "Quaker" business, but he grew out of it and loves to boast about it. He even tries to out perform Delaware, in which no one knows why...He is very cocky and loud, a perfect image of America himself. He also tends to joke around and a few times pushed it too far. He is given the nickname "Keystone" for nothing since he is always found giving support to his fellow brothers and sisters. That is the point of a keystone: holding everyone together. He loves to hang out with New York and California the most.
Human Name: Thomas Franklin
Mics: Always wears a brown Steelers football leather jacket.
Birthday: December 12, 1787
Test: Penn likes to test the territory on their physical skills and wits in Boxing. To him, its important to remember your fists when you run out of bullets.
Political Party: Democrat (Swinger)
Motto: Virtue, Liberty, and Independence New Jersey, The Garden State
Aristocrat is a fine word for him, for being the 3rd wealthiest state that is. He tends to complain that he would of been home to the nation's capital and for a good reason too. He does favor the rich but he learned humility, the hard way, when his economy crashed. He is very good with machines since his homeland has poor soil, so most of his time is spent tinkering. This advantage made many of the states jealous since he can make the war materials quicker. Though he suffered a lot, he pulled out very strong and remembered to look out for the smaller people. He even likes to scare the others states (and America) with ghost stories. He plays it cool but can be a pansy. He hangs with Massachusetts due to the two being magic and horror fanatics.
Human Name: William Clark
Eyes: Dark Blue
Mics: a sliver strand running in his hair; carries a scary book; a great singer; always dressed formally
Birthday: December 18, 1787
Weapon: Book of Spirits - you really don't want to know what this thing can do...
Test: You don't really battle New Jersey. NJ tests one's mental abilities on self preservation, ability to invent, and the ability to rake income. This test is basically taking in one's mind, which give him the chance to apply horror situations with the help of his handy book.
Political Party: Democrat (Swinger)
Motto: Liberty and ProsperityGeorgia, Peach State, Empire State of the South
Georgia is very stubborn and doesn't like to admit his feelings. He can be polite but looses his cool around the "northern states" and other races when they become very rude about the Civil War, his state in general, or being rushed about. No, he's not racist. He is prejudice against people who don't fully understand the subject matter they are fighting over/for. He takes in pride that he helped America in the Revolution and became the 4th state. Most of his pride comes from him being the number producer in pecans and poultry but he is more famous for his peaches. But also, he boast a lot about having the strongest military. He is very strict and can burst into anger at random but he's wise enough to help someone in need or give any form of advice. He and Louisiana really don't get along even though he has a major crush on her. He does like Alabama since he's the one who doesn't bug him.
Human Name: Nathan Hall
Mics: Caries around a cane (that is a sword!)
Birthday: January 2, 1788
Weapon: Sword (Gee, I wonder why!)
Test: Sword play. He tests their skills with their chosen weapons that happen not to be guns. Otherwise, it's a fencing fight. Being equal and fair in battle is important in Georgia's eyes. Moderation and skill is needed to beat him.
Political Party: Democrat
Motto: Wisdom, Justice, Moderation
Connecticut: For being one of the smallest states, he doesn't let it get to him not as much as Rhode Island (who is like a brother). He is great with machinery as well but specializes in aircraft. He got the nick name "Nutmeg" but not even he knows how he got it. He likes to stick to the rules but doesn't mind to go rebellious if needed so. A bit of the quiet type but can throw a few punches. Rhode Island, Vermont, New Jersey and New Hampshire are his greatest comrades.
Human Name: Jonathan Huntington
Hair: Brown (nutmeg)
Eyes: Sand Brown
Mics: Has a nutmeg necklace
Birthday: January 9, 1788
Massachusetts: A proud man who takes freedom to a new level. He takes in full pride for having the most history of the 13. He is very superstitious and can jump to conclusions even before seeing the facts. He suffered the most in the Revolution but he was happy to beat Brittan's butt. He was the leader of the industrial revolution and reminds Connecticut and New Jersey. He stills has a "brotherly" connection to Maine who tries to ignore him. He loves to hang with New Jersey and Connecticut and likes to mess with Maine.
Human Name: James Adams
Hair: Dark Brown
Mics: Hair done similar to America's
Birthday: February 6, 1788
Maryland: Though he has a "girly" name, he doesn't let it bother him unless it is D.C. or Georgia. The origin of his name is unknown but it is leading to the fact he was named after Mary, the mother of Jesus. Though he is the wealthiest, he doesn't show it that much. He takes great pride for having the national anthem inspired by the battled for Baltimore during the Revolution. He has a strong love for baseball but jousting is his hobby and loves to stay fit. He is calm and relaxed but can burst if called a "hippy" (it's his long hair...). He tends to baby sit DC.
Human Name: George Carroll
Hair: Blonde; A little long
Eyes: Forest Green
Mics: Wears a cross necklace
Birthday: April 28, 1788
South Carolina: Don't confuse him with his brother nor South Dakota. Though he cared for his brother, the two couldn't get along so the territory was split. He takes great passion into his history. He is quite hasty and doesn't think before making decisions. He gets scolded a lot by Georgia due the fact that he was the first to return to America's side. Surprisingly, he is quite conservative and hates change which shows with the struggles with women and African American rights. But he is very smart since he is home to many famous colleges. He is shy so he tends to hide behind his brother but also hates to get into trouble.
Human Name: Benjamin Hooper
Eyes: Pale Green
Mics: Shorter than his Brother; Carries a book; glasses
Birthday: May 23, 1788
New Hampshire: He likes to be the first, no doubt. He relies on his harbors since that is where his economy lies. During the president elections, he is one state (and Iowa) to get on your side. For that, he doesn't like Iowa that much since she is slowly stealing his thunder. He loves the winter since he can ski at his favorite locations. He does have beautiful mountainous trails. He can seem to not care for things but it is just an act to either push people away or grab their attention.
Human Name: Meshech Bartlett
Hair: Strawberry Blonde
Mics: Always wears a tie
Birthday: June 21, 1788
Virginia: Don't be fooled, this is one lady state you don't want to mess with. She received the nick name "Mother of Presidents" since George Washington was from her land and that 8 presidents where born there too. She had a very strong role in the Revolution but she felt miserable during the Civil War. Her people literally broke apart and a new state was born: West Virginia, who became her little brother after he was recognized. She had trouble with getting rights for her people but for being a woman herself, she wasn't paid much attention too. She even had an interesting role during the Cold War. But, she can be over dramatic at times and very cautious due to 9/11. She really loves to be with Delaware.
Human Name: Maureen Jefferson
Hair: Brown; long and wavy
Eyes: Brown w/ a hint of hazel
Mics: Wears glasses; commonly wears dresses
Birthday: June 25, 1788
New York: A man who plays tough but lives easy. He takes on pride for his largest city: New York City. Which is his "life force." He has the "New Yorker" attitude and a strong spirit which helped him during the Revolution. He loves to see immigrants coming to his state and watch them try to make a living. Since 9/11, he became less social, which is scaring the other states since he won't stop talking at parties. He always dresses nice. He loves to hang with his 13 siblings.
Human Name: Morgan Morris
Hair: Dark Blonde
Eyes: Light blue
Mics: Hair always brushed back; Scar on right eye (eye still works)
Birthday: July 26, 1788
North Carolina: He is embarrassed that he didn't join the Union the same time with is Southern brother so don't pester him about it. He didn't want to join with the Confederates until the Northern Union decided to invade his brother. With that, he put more support into the war but his people held him back. He is also military friendly. He seems mean but he really cares for the people he loves so naturally, he gets defensive.
Human Name: Richard Hooper
Hair: Dark Blonde
Eyes: Pale Green
Mics: His shirt is always tucked in and it is a button down shirt
Birthday: November 21, 1789
Rhode Island: The smallest of the smallest. He is easily intimidated. He did his best during the Revolution but also responded quickly in the Civil War. He takes VJ Day (Victory over Japan) seriously and celebrates it, though he is the only one and that Hawaii doesn't like him because it reminds her of the "terrible day." He does act like a child but will be mature when the situation calls for it. He has a small thing for boats.
Human Name: Nicholas Hopkins
Hair: Dark Red
Mics: Shortest State; wears a leather coat
Birthday: May 29, 1790
The Appalachian States: Forgotten Colonies
Maine: He loves to make himself look handsome and pleasant (which might have to do with the French settlers). He also gets very serious. He loves the sea and what comes out of it. In other words, he loves sea food. The one thing he doesn't like is his older brother, Massachusetts. He decided to leave Mass in 1820 and then became a state in the same year. He tends to think that he is the most "handsome" of the states and has a big ego.
Human Name: Daniel Adams
Mics: Hair is always done; wears fancy clothing
Birthday: March 18, 1820
Vermont: Maybe Canada's favorite state for one reason: Maple Syrup. Vermont had it tough. He was a sovereign state for 14 years but became the 14th state in 1791. During his early years, he had lots of trouble with the French and the British fighting over him. He is not much a fan of battles but he will help to support. He is quiet like Canada but much more bolder.
Human Name: Paul Coolidge
Hair: Blonde w/ a hint of red
Mics: hides a bottle of syrup in his tan leather coat; kinda has Canada's curl
Birthday: March 4, 1791
West Virginia: He gave Virginia quite a surprise when he decided to leave her house. He did not like the way her boss was thinking so, he started a rebellion. Surprisingly, he suffered only a little during the Civil War. West is famous for mining and logging histories and still top coal producer nationally. He is very bold with decisions. He cares for his older sister but he really doesn't want to do anything with her. He is very rebellious and doesn't like doing chores. He likes to join up with Tennessee and Kentucky.

Birthday: June 25, 1788

Illinois: A state that takes in too much pride for being the "Land of Lincoln" and always been noted as a "microcosm." She loves the center of attention since many major routes go through her state. She is very smart with time tables and can be very rushy and pushy even though she is trying not to be. She always believe that her baseball team will one day win the World Cup once more. She can be bratty sometimes. She gets along just fine with Ohio but loves to talk about music with Louisiana.

Mics: Always found wearing a jumper; Wears glasses; carries a small bell (she "jingles" when walking)
Birthday: December 3, 1818

She can be a Hoosier sometimes and drink occasionally.
Human Name: Ann Appleseed
Hair: Dark Blonde
Mics: Wears random racing gear
Birthday: December 11, 1816
Ohio: The "Buckeye" state tries to be the toughest one. He did get into a fight with Michigan, which was bloodless, over a strip of land.

He also occasionally has to deal with earthquakes which scares him every time.
Human Name: Edward Hayes Grant
Mics: Wears a buckeye necklace; sounds cocky
Birthday: March 1, 1803

Human Name: Archibald Presley
Mics: carries a random music device (changes every day)
Birthday: June 1, 1796
Gulf States: Hurricane Five
Florida: A state that knows "fun in the sun." He is very cheeky and bright (possibly a Spanish trait?). He can be a little vulgar but he only does to joke around. As a surprise, he is the one who came up with the idea of the Confederate states (with a little help from Georgia but it was South Carolina who put it into action). Florida is even carefully watched during elections (think about it...). For being a state hit by hurricanes, sink holes, and sever thunder storms, he always keep things bright.
Human Name: Madison Young
Mics: Full of energy; has a pet gator; wears a "Hawaiian" shirt; skate boards
Birthday: March 3, 1845

Human Name: Margaret Raspberry
Hair: Brown w/ a hint of red
Mics: She owns a boat; carries an umbrella
Birthday: December 10, 1817
Louisiana: A state with her natural "black" attitude. Just like Virginia, she had lots of trouble trying to get listen to but Louisiana is also part black which causes tension. She is very defensive and not afraid to act. She suffers a lot from the hurricanes and many of the states help her out every year. She is proud of the major city New Orleans and that her football team finally won a super bowl. Her cuisine follows similar to the French. She sometimes refers to herself as a "Creole."
Human Name: Elizabeth Armstrong
Hair: Black; long and curly; commonly in a ponytail
Eyes: Dark brown
Mics: The only state that is black
Birthday: April 30, 1812
Texas: Head's up, don't even talk about Mexico with him around. He had a long struggle with Mexico and was eventually a sovereign state...for about 10 years until America literally dragged him to D.C. This "loner" is quite proud and has guts. Once in a while, he would get into a fight with Alaska, which is his excuse to relieve stress. He is a pure cowboy as mostly found around his ranch. He loves anything that would get his heart pumping and his palms sweating: from bull riding to eating spicy foods. He rides with Wyoming (tends to argue with about who made the "true Cowboy") and Montana.

Mics: Wears a cowboy hat, boots, belt, and neck tie; owns a horse and a ranch
Birthday: December 29, 1845
West Mississippi: The Towering Four
Minnesota: "Land of the 10,000 Lakes." No joke. He is one of the most richest states and it is quite surprising that a mid west state can be rich. He has a strong Scandinavian heritage as well as German. He got his name from the Dakota word Mnisota
which means sky-tinted water. He is a very hard worker and worked a good long time with loggers. Though he looks rough, he is very tender and has a love for the fine arts. He also just loves to tease Iowa with his tales of his state fair.
Human Name: Alexander Madden
Hair: Dark Blonde
Mics: Commonly wears violet and gold; always wears boots
Birthday: May 11, 1858
Iowa: A friendly state. She all ways has a smile. She is quite bouncy. She trades with China and loves to talk to Ukraine. She loves company (especially Alaska and Hawaii) but she and Nebraska never get along for unknown reasons (many say it was over football). Never call her the "fly-over-state." She takes good pride of her corn and soy bean crops but the occasional floods tend to be bothersome. Giving up was never truly in her dictionary...heck, she sent the most troops to fight in the Civil War. Also, you want to hide your bacon...(belly growls). Iowa has a strong French heritage but she sure doesn't act like him. Iowa may seem boring, but she offers a few attractions from her annual State Fair to her only amusement park: Adventureland to her first NASCAR race track: Iowa Speedway. She can be pushy and rude sometimes but she's defensive since she, and many alike, is a farmer state.
Human Name: Mari Hoover
Hair: Dark Blonde; cut to shoulders
Mics: Carries a pick fork; has a pet pig; wears a straw hat if working
Birthday: December 28, 1846
Missouri: And no, he is not miserable (inside joke)... He is very high strung and has a southern accent. He has the trouble believing in things (explains why he is nicked named "Show-me" state). Like Mississippi, he is also named after a river. Though many of the states hate having people mispronounce their names, Missouri doesn't mind as much. Like his siblings, he was also French territory before sold to America. Like his boss, he wanted to join the Confederates but the vote did not go their way. So, they both secretly gathered troops but the Union caught on and this lead to the St. Louis Massacre. His most praised possession is the Gateway Arch which symbolizes the expansion of the west.
Human Name: Frederick Twain
Hair: Dark Blonde
Mics: Wears boots; glasses; a straw hat (usually)
Birthday: August 10, 1821
Arkansas: He isn't pleased that his nick name changed from "opportunity" to "natural." Many of the states love to make fun of him due to his stereo-type: a poor hill-billy. To honest truth, after loosing in the Civil War, he lost everything. For a long time, he wasn't sure he'll make it but when the world wars occurred, he was able to rely on the production of military goods. In the early years, he was thrown between hands of France and Spain, not sure who will take for him. At first, he didn't want to interfere with the war. But when America's boss ordered his troops to quiet a rebellion, he refused and joins the Confederates. After the Civil War, he was is shreds. He felt his government crumble but America and his boss help to fix it by rewriting Arkansas' constitution. Even after all that hardship, he still puts on a smile and plays as his stereo-type and plays some blue-grass.

Wisconsin: He can be a "bad boy" but he is naturally defensive due to high crime and a great stubborn personality (like a cow!) Wisconsin is greatly known for his dairy products and he loves to boast about it. He became under America's control after the War of 1812, after the American Revolutionary War against Britain. At first, he was known well for lead mining and earned the nickname "badger" since the miners lived in the holes they dug. With his defensive behavior, he became a free state and help slaves escape to Canada. He had lots of trouble trying to find an industry to excel in but in the 1890's he switched from wheat to dairy, which was better for the land. he does get a giggle when people call him "cheese head" and is proud of that name. He also shares a great love for music and festivals. Be careful, he loves to drink.
Human Name: Nathaniel Wilder
Hair: Bright Blonde
Mics: smells like cheese; typically wears jeans and a long sleeve shirt and a coat; in winter: will wear hat and mittens; occasionally will be eating cheese.
Birthday: May 29, 1848
Michigan: Talk about being split in two. Michigan is the only one with his territory like this. Mich (as they call him) is machine smart. He can take apart a car and put is back together with no remaining pieces. America had a lot of trouble trying to take control of this territory since the British still had control of it. As the years go by, Mich was ready to be a state but there was a problem: Ohio. Mich and Ohio had a terrible fight over this. America decided the older state, Ohio will get the Toledo Strip. Mich got the Upper Peninsula instead. Everybody was surprised that Mich lead the lumber, iron and copper industries since it was full of natural resources. Mich also supported the Union by sending more that 40 regiments. He is also Caucasian. Mich is famous for Ford, a famous car manufacturing company which introduce the most useful invention in human history: the conveyer belt. Mich is actually quite friendly, beside his deal with Ohio, and still close with Canada and talk about hockey. And like many states who have more than one collage team, beware in football season.

(Thank you, and )
Hilly Lands: Five at Foot of Rockies
North Dakota: He is not much as popular as the other 49. He is more of the strong and silent type. In 1889, he and his twin brother got into a fight (which is not normal for the two) over who will be the 39th state. It is not official who got it but ND comes first due to the spelling. ND has a Norwegian and Icelandic heritage, thus giving him his hardy and courageous attributes. ND loves to fish and hunt, but more likely alone than a group. ND is famous for the oil boom, he is the most religious, and he is the number one producer for sugar beets (he loves sugar beets).

Hawaii: A happy state who tries to cheer everyone up. For being the youngest state, she can mess up and cause trouble but she is still learning. Like Texas and Vermont, she was on her own for a while till America asked her to join the Union. She is still shaky after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor and hides when ever Japan is near, who is still apologizing. She and Iowa get along very well and she never wants to leave Alaska's side.

Mics: Wears a Plumeria; wears her native clothes (or what ever Lilo is wearing...)
Birthday: August 21, 1959

Alaska: A state that is usually quiet and hangs at the back of the crowd. He seems gloomy but he is friendly and full of energy yet you may see him somewhere napping. He still bears a grudge on his former "parent" country, Russia, for leaving him and selling him to America (which he bears a grudge on too). He, like Russia, tends to leave a slight creepy atmosphere when angered but Hawaii and Iowa are his two closest friends.

Washington D.C.: DC for short. This little girl loves to annoy not just the States but America too. She wants to be recognized as a state but the 50 feel very uncomfortable due to her child like actions. She does talk to Sealand for advice. She doesn't take the hint that she is the capital of the country, not a state. She is looked after by both Delaware and Maryland when America isn't around since America is the only one who can get her to shut up.
