Here is SQL and a tab delimited list of the States of the USA for all to use.

The original data was sourced from Wikipedia.

Edit: I’ve beed advised that although it’s not technically a state, this list needs District of Columbia as most real world scenarios require it. It’s been added to the top of the list.
