The state of Georgia is named for British King George II, who awarded the colony of Georgia its charter in 1733. According to historian Peter Linebaugh, the colony was the result of a 1729 Parliamentary committee investigation of the horros of London prisons led by James Oglethorpe. The resul was "a buffer against the Spanish in Flordia, a forcing house for Methodism, and dumping ground for incarcerated debtors." (p.180).

Georgia has a 13.1 per 100,000 rate of deaths from gun violence. That is lower than poor benighted Alabama but higher than in South Carolina or Florida. Daily Beast Having more of a coastline seems to help.

Georgia's ranks 38th in literacy rate among American states, at 82.8%, below the national average of 84.2%.

The good news is that social change is happening despite the sclerotic conservatism of its politics. For example as of 2013 a healthy majority of Georgian residents favor the legalization of marijuana.
