Yes, they have the equivalent of states in Mexico, like provinces in Canada. If you don't like Ohio, MOVE. Move to Louisiana, which is still in the second half of the 20th century, or the Texas panhandle, which gets ignored along with the Oklahoma panhandle by the state governments UNLESS there is a state election coming up, or Kansas or Colorado. If you feel like a cultural misfit, maybe the problem is YOU. You hate yourself and have no self respect. No matter WHERE you live, you cannot get away from YOU.
