Utah is, according to LiveScience, the happiest state in the country. Why? A dominant religion? A sparse population? Wonderful ski slopes? Breathtaking panoramas? Who is to say what is causing all this happiness?

Georgia comes in at 23 out of 50, not too bad, considering that only two Southern states (marginally "Southern"), Maryland and Virginia, do better at happiness than we do. Who would have thought that North and South Carolinians, Tennesseans and Floridians are less happy than we are? Alabamians - not a surprise!

If you had ever thought of leaving the peach state and moving to Oregon, check out Colorado instead. They, respectively, come in at 18 and 4 on this happiness scale. It must be those ski slopes! :-)

Check the list out for yourself:
