15. Wichita is a decent sized city

there are 482,000 people in Sedgwick county (Wichita) whereas there are only 532,668 people in all of Wyoming and 621,270 people in Vermont whereas Kansas has 2.8 million people. Even Topeka (Shawnee County) with 174,709 people has about as many people as the LARGEST city in South Dakota (Sioux Falls or Minnehaha County with 179,180. The next largest city in SD is Rapid City (Pennington County) with 98,533 and the next largest in Aberdeen (Brown County) 35,154. Compared to Kansas with Douglas County (Lawrence) 114,748 and Leavenworth (74,276) and Saline (54,657) and Manhattan (Riley County) 71,069 and even Garden City (Finney) 40,998 and Crawford County (Pittsburg) 38,868.

Lawrence is much bigger than Rapid City and there are many cities in Kansas bigger than Aberdeen, some of them much bigger.

edit: SD is sort of a typical state with only one Congressional district, although back when I was a kid, in the 1980s, we had two.
