It might not be something we're proud of, but each state is the worst at something.

Though some states are bad at trivial things, such as Washington, which is the worst at liking Justin Bieber, others signal larger societal issues, such as Alabama, which has the most child smokers.

The list, compiled by Kate Peregrina with the Thrillist.com, is based on various statistics and reports.

And if you were wondering where California stacks up, the Golden State apparently takes top honors for having the most polluted cities. That's based on data from the American Lung Association's State of the Air 2014.

While our neighbors in Kansas have the ugliest scenery and Utah is the nerdiest, two more adjacent states have some morbid claims to fame, with New Mexico being known for the most accidental deaths and Wyoming being recognized as having the highest suicide rate.

Other states are listed as having the most meth incidents, the worst drivers, the least animal protection and the least integrity.
