An online petition to merge North and South Dakota has garnered over 16,000 signatures.
Dillan Stewart, a change.org user from Fargo, North Dakota, is asking President Trump to merge the two states and name them “MegaKota.” His reasoning? “i think itd be pretty cool to have a state called MegaKota so yeah. oh yeah and then maybe Puerto Rico can be a state and we wont have to change our flag.”
People seem to be into the idea, tweeting their support and creating info graphics of what the new state would look like.
Last night, inspired by the joke petition to marge South and North Dakota into a new “Megakota” state, I — as I am wont to do — went a bit overboard: https://t.co/smHtys13Ij cc @argusleader pic.twitter.com/qjSvnw6HXC

if we’re merging south and north dakota, then we should call it ‘Dakota’. it’s way much better than megakota like that sounds so bad

We don't need two Dakotas. Especially when one is mostly just an ice wasteland anyway.
