Missouriball is a state of midwestern USAball. He has 6 major cities, Kansas Cityball, St. Louisball, Springfieldball, Independenceball (actually a satellite of KC), Columbiaball, and Joplinball (home of the 2011 tornado & bad flag (but not as bad as Brown County).
Missouriball was a 3ball adopted by USAball. He officially became a state in 1821. In the 1830s, citizens got into a feud with
evacuees immigrants. In 1839 he lost a bloodless conflict with Iowaball and had to give up his upper right corner. During the Civil War, he was one of the few slave states to not join the CSAball. However, he also sent a lot of people to fight for CSAball, and let CSAball's people use his clay to launch raids.
Missouriball was the launching point for many expeditions to settle more western clay. Peoples freshly arrived from German Confederationball would gather in St Louis to buy wagons, oxen, sacks of flour and grandfather clocks before setting out to ford rivers and die of dysentry. Eventually he decided to commemorate the valor of these peoples dying to settle new clays by building a giant metal halo; but because Missouriball can't do anything right it came out looking all wonky and stretched out.
