The Rhode Island thread made be wonder. Without cheating by looking it up or answering because you live in the state how many can answer the following question.

 

There are four (4) states that are referred to as "Commonwealth" instead of State. All legal documents must refer to them in this manner and by all accounts they should be recognized as Commonwealth of instead of State of. Can you name the four (4) Commonwealths?

I didn't know about Rhode Island's full name, but I can name the commonwealths.  I grew up in one of them.

Of the 4? Zero, I wouldn't know about RI if I hadn't read this thread. Geography was/is my worst subject, with world history a close second.
