Internet, Internet, on the web, which state is the American-est of them all?
Iowa, of course.
A new totally unscientific study by Estately declared lil' ol' us to be the most American of all the 50 states.
Iowa is "where astronauts are born, and where the actual baseball field in the movie 'Field of Dreams' is located," the Estately post read. "It produces the most bacon of any state, and Iowa corn farmers fuel our country's obesity epidemic with sweet, sweet corn syrup."
Estately rated states based on eight factors:
- Bald eagles per square mile
- Olympic gold medals won per capita
- Native astronauts per capita
- Fast food restaurants per capita
- Major League
