Save Americans by Guessing U.S. States

Aliens have escaped from Area 51 and they want to kill everyone in United States! Fortunately, they've given you 45 seconds to save as many as you can. All you have to do is name a state to save everyone in it.
Each "answer" correct corresponds to 1 million people saved
States with fewer than 1 million people are rounded up
