      It would make a whole lot more sense, at least culturally and politically.  West of the Missouri, it's redneck cowboy country very much like Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho; livestock and grain production are the mainstays of the economy.  East of the Missouri it's soybeans and corn and a (comparatively) liberal attitude like Minnesota or Iowa.  West River locals pretty well loathe the "liberals"  east of the Missouri. I grew up in West River SD; the only reason I ever return is to visit relatives, but within a week I'm ready to get the hell out.  And I never, ever open my mouth about politics.  If you're even slightly to the left of Atila the Hun, you're toast in a lot of bars in western SD.
