    Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days.
    Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh day.

    He inquired of God, "Where have you been?"

    God signed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards
    through the clouds. "Look, Michael, look what I've made."

    Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"

    "It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call
    it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."

    "Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.

    God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example,
    northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while
    southern Europe is going to be poor."

    "Over there I've placed a continent of tall people and over there is a
    continent of short people."

    God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be
    extremely hot while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

    The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land mass and
    said, "What's that one?"

    "Ah," said God. "That's SOUTH DAKOTA, the most glorious place on earth.
    There are vast plains, rivers, streams, hills, and forests. The people from
    SOUTH DAKOTA are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and
    they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely
    sociable, hardworking and high achieving, and they will be known throughout
    the world as diplomats and carriers of peace."

    Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What about
    balance, God? You said there would be balance."

    God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the idiots I'm surrounding them
    with in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado and Montana."
