@kiilas @Sapphicgiraffic Trevor Noah said that, until he moved to the US, he saw it as one monolithic country. After living in it for many years, he now realizes that it is at least 50 different countries pretending to be one big country.
Personally I think that might be a better explanation for why people identify by State rather than we see it as some sort of prestige thing. We tend to only be affected day to day by things on a state level.
