Well,Protoss,we have states...just like your adopted homeland,the U.S.
...but we only have 31 of them plus Mexico City which serves as a federal district,like D.C.(just with less worldwide political clout),though it's MUCH larger than Washington both in square miles and population.
My own state,Chihuahua,is the biggest in physical size,and I think that we're #1 in population,too....or at least very close to it.You'll find us on the southern border of the U.S.,spreading forth from below the Texas panhandle.People who are upper-middle-class and above often fly to Monterrey because carjacking is VERY common along the highway once you get past the exit to Torreon in the state of Coahuila(the state on our eastern border).People who don't fly will most always take an interstate bus(which is far less likely to get 'jacked),a trip that lasts around 12 hours as you head SE from Chihuahua towards the Gulf of Mexico.Monterrey is the capital of the state of Nuevo Leon,which is below the southernmost tip of Texas(one state removed from the Gulf).You can make it from Chihuahua City,our state capital,to Monterrey in a personal car in about 10 hours......but that's only recommended if you have a car filled with guys with firearms who know HOW and are willing to use them
