What is the longest US state name. I always figured it was Rhode Island, but wanted to check out the full name. This says
The official name of Rhode Island is "The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations". It can be traced in this form back to the Royal Charter of 1663, granted to the Rhode Island colonists by King Charles II of England. In this Charter, it is the "Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations".
I should really check the other states, but i'd guess RI has it.
While there, i checked here
The world's biggest termite is on the roof of New England Pest Control in Providence. It measures 58 feet long and is 928 times the size of a real termite. The termite's name is Nibbles.
