The State of Arizona is a U.S. state located in the Southwestern United States. The capital of Arizona is Phoenix, which is also the largest city. The second largest city is Tucson, but that's not saying much...

Arizona was the 48th and last of the "real" states, the other two being Alaska and Hawaii, which most people consider novelty items more than states. It was admitted to the Union in February, 1912. Before 1912, Arizona was just considered the "bad part" of New Mexico. Arizona is noted for its hell on earth like desert climate, exceptionally HOT summers, and boring winters.

Arizona is considered the "consolation prize" state, since most people who end up there really wanted to be in California but realized Arizona was cheaper. It is landlocked so if you were expecting the beach, prepare to be disappointed. In addition to the Grand Canyon, there are a lot of other gaping holes as well, (see John McCain).


The 2006 total gross state product was $232 billion. If Arizona (and each of the other US states) were an independent country along with all existing countries (2005), it would have the 61st largest economy in the world (CIA - The World Factbook). If that's the kind of thing that impresses you, being the 61st of something in a made up, existential fallacy, then Arizona, "The Consolation Prize State", is the perfect place for someone like you. Despite this Arizona's budget deficit is the country's worst, according to The Business Journal of Phoenix.


Arizona is represented in the US Senate by Jeff Flake and John McCain, both Republicans. In the 2010 Midterm Elections, McCain was re-elected to the Senate. Jeff Flake is currently the least popular senator in the nation. [1] Choose better senators next time Arizona.

Fortunately, it appears as if we do have better senators this election cycle, in Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly. Despite that, the GOP appears likely to maintain control of the Senate
