Smallest state of the USA. Founded by Roger Williams, hence its capital of Providence. Also known for a large red chicken. Curiously, it is not an island in any shape, way, or form.
It's full name is the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, and in fact, Rhode Island IS and island. We just forget that fact because RI is so small. Rhode Island is now known as Aquidneck Island, and it is where foul and rich industrialists from New York and New Jersey did come and build horrendously huge mansions. They are now unoccupied, due to a socialist revolution .
