Absaroka

 Absaroka

In its short-lived attempt at existence, the US state of Absaroka pronounced ab-SOR-ka managed to acquire quite a few trappings of statehood: a governor and capital were selected, Absarokan car license plates issued, and there even was a Miss Absaroka 1939 the first and only one. The King of Norway also visited, apparently – although he might not have suspected that it was a state visit.
