Ohio is the 17th state of the United States of UnAmerica, known for being so insignificant that it is never, and never was, attacked. It's the home of lightbulbs, Hot Dogs and Superman. Despite it's insignificance, it is very cool and is why we have many things.
Ohio was made a state on December 18, 1865. Ducky annihilated it immediately after with his Quadgun using a Snowtomic Bomb. So on the same day in 1868, it was brung back, and everyone said OK. Then some guys invented cool stuff. Then cities came, and then things just went straightforward.
