The Fifty-First State

I'm not sure where the star would go, but there has been the recent resurrection of a 1941 movement to create a new state. The bombing of Pearl Harbor effectively killed off the movement the first time. Who knows what might happen nowadays? There is a State of Jefferson website, a State of Jefferson blog, or as an introduction, you might want to read this October 5th article in the San Francisco Chronicle.
Sounds reminiscient of the Cascadia independence movement. Except slightly more likely since it is the creation of a new state as opposed to the secession of states/provinces from the U.S./Canada and formation of a new country. But I still have my doubts--unless we fall into a period of complete chaos or something.
