The United States is in a fifty-states-wide couples' counseling session, thinking about filing for divorce. But is that really what we want? Can a nation composed of states that are so different possibly hang together? Overstated calls us out state-by-state, identifying the hypocrisies inherent in what we claim to believe and what we actually do. Within a framework of thinking about systems of government to dead-on observations about the quirks and vibes of the citizens in each region, Overstated skewers us all: red, blue, and purple. It's ultimately infused with the optimism and practicality that sparked the U.S. into being.
