Result
Well, at least you got a couple of the easy ones. And frankly, this one is a pretty tough quiz when it comes to state knowledge, so don't beat yourself up too bad - as long as you know your own home state's nickname, you're all set!

Well, you missed some of the tougher ones, but honestly these state nicknames are some of the harder "broad" facts to remember about states. Most people only know their own state nicknames and the more famous nicknames like "The Lone Star State." Great job!

You sure know your state nicknames! Many of these are pretty obscure - you might know the bigger ones like "The Lone Star State" for Texas, or the nickname of your home state, but otherwise the names don't get thrown around too much. Great work!
