Here’s another list Carson City is near the top of. Someone ranked all 50 states based on how small their capital city is compared to the largest city in the state. It turns out Las Vegas is 32 times larger than Carson City, so we’ve made a solid #3 on the list. The only ones that beat us were Illinois (46x) and Maryland (72x). But we edged out Vermont, whose capital only has 8,000 residents!
