    The climate allows you to survive year around. The state has almost all of the resources required to thrive and defend itself if it becomes a separate nation. The only cons are increasing population density.

      I would definitely agree with the increasing population.

    Extreme heat , humidity, droughts, and severe weather are the cons.
