The proposed State of Superior (or State of Ontonagon) is the name of a "51st state" proposal involving the secession of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and possibly other portions of northern Michigan, and in some proposals, some of the northern counties from the state of Wisconsin as well. The proposal is spurred by cultural differences, geographic separation, and the belief that the capitals in Lansing, and Madison, ignore the problems of the "Superior Region." The same area had been referred to as a possible future state named Sylvania by Thomas Jefferson. Named for Lake Superior, the idea has gained serious attention at times, though is unlikely to ever come to fruition because of the large amount of funding that the area receives from the lower parts of the state, and because of the

  • Supérieur (Superior en anglais) est le nom du 51e État des États-Unis qui fut proposé – à plusieurs reprises aux XIXe et XXe siècles – par la scission de la péninsule supérieure du Michigan du reste de l'État homonyme.
  • The proposed State of Superior (or State of Ontonagon) is the name of a "51st state" proposal involving the secession of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and possibly other portions of northern Michigan, and in some proposals, some of the northern counties from the state of Wisconsin as well. The proposal is spurred by cultural differences, geographic separation, and the belief that the capitals in Lansing, and Madison, ignore the problems of the "Superior Region." The same area had been referred to as a possible future state named Sylvania by Thomas Jefferson. Named for Lake Superior, the idea has gained serious attention at times, though is unlikely to ever come to fruition because of the large amount of funding that the area receives from the lower parts of the state, and because of the completion of the Mackinac Bridge in 1957, which gave the Upper Peninsula a direct highway connection to the rest of the state. Several prominent legislators, including local Upper Peninsula politician Dominic Jacobetti, attempted enacting such legislation in the 1970s, with no success. If the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were turned into a state, it would currently have a smaller population than any other state, with its 311,361 residents representing only 60 percent of Wyoming's population and less than 50 percent of Alaska's. It would rank 40th in land area, larger than Maryland. Its most-populous city, Marquette, has a smaller population than Burlington, Vermont, which has the smallest population of the 50 cities that are the most populous in their respective states.

  • A proposta do Estado Superior (ou Estado de Ontonagon) é o nome de um possível "51º estado" envolvendo a secessão da Península Superior do Michigan, e possivelmente outras partes do norte de Michigan, e em algumas propostas, alguns dos condados do norte do estado do Wisconsin também. A proposta é estimulada por diversos fatores, incluindo as diferenças culturais, a separação geográfica e a crença de que as capitais de Lansing no Michigan e Madison no Wisconsin, ignoram os problemas sociais da "Região Superior". A mesma área foi referida como um possível estado futuro chamado Sylvania por Thomas Jefferson. Nomeado em referência ao Lago Superior, a ideia ganhou uma atenção séria, embora seja improvável que alguma vez venha a ser concretizada por causa da grande quantidade de financiamento que a área recebe das partes mais baixas do Michigan, e por causa da conclusão da Ponte Mackinac em 1957, que deu à Península Superior uma conexão rodoviária direta com o resto do estado. Vários legisladores proeminentes, incluindo o político local da Península Superior, , tentaram aprovar tal legislação na década de 1970, mas não obtiveram sucesso. Se a Península Superior de Michigan tornar-se um estado, o novo estado teria atualmente uma população menor do que a de qualquer outro estado, com seus 320 mil habitantes representando apenas 60% da população de Wyoming (o estado de menor população do país) e menos de 50% da população do Alasca. O estada estaria na 40º posição em relação à área de terra, e seria maior que o estado de Maryland. Sua cidade mais populosa, Marquette, tem uma população menor do que Burlington em Vermont, que é a cidade menos populosa das cinquenta cidades que são as mais populosas de seus respectivos estados.
