No state is perfect. Just check the stats.

After compiling various census and US health figures, pop culture blog Pleated-Jeans constructed a surprisingly informative map to illustrate the acts for which each of our fifty great states came in dead last.

While some stats fit in with a common stereotype, others are a bit more enlightening. Highlights include:

  • West Virginia: Highest rate of heart attacks
  • Ohio: Nerdiest State
  • Pennsylvania: Highest arson rates
  • New Mexico: Most anti-social
  • Washington: Highest rate of bestiality
  • Oklahoma: Most female criminals
  • Maine: Dumbest state

Check out the full map (and sources) here to see what’s wrong with your state.
