Ever wonder which states are the most/least sinful?
But the folks over at the personal-finance Web site WalletHub did. They ranked the 50 states on 47 factors ranging from crime to obesity.
And the most virtuous among us is Wyoming. The Cowboy State scored especially well in the greed category, which measured things like casinos per capita and charitable donations as share of income.
It’s also a gorgeous state where I enjoyed some time during my most recent cross-country road trip. It boasts spectacular scenery, pioneer history, and two National Parks — Grand Teton and (some of) Yellowstone.
Wyoming’s equally beautiful western neighbors also scored well on some measures.

On the other side of the country, relatively tiny New England also made a big showing.
Now, as someone whose natural habitats include spas and casinos, I’m not sold on the idea that every factor measured by the study reflects a vice. So maybe this list can be a useful guide for where to find your favorite indulgences.
