California. It could be its own country. Look at all our GDP.
All are pretty good with the exception of Texas. The country would be better off if that cesspit ceded from the union.
Edit: They can take Arizona with them, at least its government, come to think of it. I'd completely forgotten about that horrible state!

But look at how soon we're all forgotten. The abyss of endless time that swallows it all. The emptiness of those applauding hands.
I'll also go with California...
Of course NY comes slightly behind!

Beauty > Personality
the Great State of Texas of course
With just a little bias, Texas!
Great economy, great cities, great culture, love it here.

Well I've only been to California and Florida, so I can only really judge them.
Gotta say though, I liked California more!
Only steers and queers come from Texas.
If I had to pick a state I would aim for Oregon or Washington. I do love me some rain. Oh and stay away from Kansas, super crazies live there. :S
I wouldn't ever want to truly live in America, it's like a planet of crazy aliens where common laws of logic and nature don't apply, from my european perspective. I of course don't know how things really are in different states, but just from a distance, the ones that attract me the most are:
Hawaii - such a beautiful place and the music is so tranquil and innocent.
Florida - the whole tropical/subtropical climate thing has a lot of flair.
Louisiana - comparatively rich in culture, and everything seems to have a twist of it's own there. I like the swamps.
The whole New England area has something romantic to it. I like Boston and Salem and stuff, kind of an interesting vibe to it.
I'm not that much of a New York fan, but I love the accent
I probably picked some really weird choices for someone who actually has a clue about the US, but whatever

I'm Canadian so I guess I'm less biased than those living in the USA.
Personally, I like New York. To me, it seems like the state that has everything.
Chuck Norris, Tommy Lee Jones, Nolan Ryan, Buddy Holly, Willie Nelson, Robert Earl Keen, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, Lyle Lovett and Townes Van Zandt...
The most popular poker game in the world isn't called New York Hold 'Em, is it?
The Alamo Drafthouse Movie Theater (Texans will understand that one)
Robocop were filmed here.
Best state shape for cookies<---
"Cowboying" is still a profession.
You can go to an opera and a rodeo and see the same people in the crowd at both.
"Everything is bigger in Texas" -- We have the most "legendary" perception from others, national and internationally.
More than 10 distinct ecological regions
Fiesta in San Antonio (it's a citywide party)
The Texas Rangers (best rangers out of any state)
The best BBQ in the nation
We can succeed from the union
We have the nicest people in the nation
The list goes on and on...
We are Texans. We are a proud people. While we never claim to be perfect, we are real and we strive to make the Union a better one through a better Texas. What matters here isn't how plastic you are or how tan you are ... it's about who you are.
On topic: I'd say California for weather but their economy and politics are so awful (Honestly, along with most of the people I've met that live there.) that I wouldn't be able to live there. Economy would probably be Texas because they do have a pretty good economy. Politics, nowhere that I know of has even half decent political views, so, can't say on that one.
Edit: Also, what's with all these people FROM Texas saying Texas? Read the rules.
