You’re not the only person with tickets to that Limited Edition Action Figure auction tonight: an online real estate search site has announced that Washington is the sixth-nerdiest state.

Estately analyzed Facebook ‘likes’ from all over the country, tallying totals in categories like Star Trek:  The Next Generation, cosplay (i.e., all the costumed people you see at Emerald City ComiCon), Harry Potter, anime movies, comic books, and more.

According to the study, people who are fans of these things are nerds (say it loud, say it proud) and Washington has the 6th-highest percentage of people who like one or more of these things.

Washington D.C., Mississippi and New Jersey rank among the lowest in all categories.

You can read more about the study here…

Washington may have ranked sixth in overall nerdiness, but our state ranked second-highest in Lord of the Rings fandom and fourth-highest when it comes to fans of Magic: The Gathering.

A few states beat out Washington (who knew there were so many nerds in Utah?) but that doesn’t matter. All your state are belong to us.
