If the question relates to Commonwealths versus states, it's important to note that Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Virginia are all Commonwealths, although the …distinction has no legal meaning or effect whatsoever. The District of Columbia, which includes the capital city of Washington, D.C., is between the states of Virginia and Maryland, but is not part of any state. The District of Columbia was created to be separate from any state, so it would not seem like the country was favoring one state over the other. There is no such thing. Although 4 of the 50 states (Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Virginia) are known as Commonwealths. They are still states. The United States has 50 states, 5 (inhabited) territories, and a federal district. The 5 territories (American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, United States Virgin Islands) are not states, so they can't be states that aren't states. The federal district (District of Columbia) houses the City of Washington DC. Some say this is the only City in the United States that's not in a state, but there are several very large cities in the territories that are just as much part of the United States as Washington DC and are not in a state either.
