So that is why I thought Hooterville in Illinois.
I think you've nailed it.

I've uncovered what I believe is the best evidence yet for Hooterville's location.

Consider the following:
S2/Ep06 : "One of Our Assemblymen is Missing" - it's revealed Hooterville resides in the Kangaroo State
S4/Ep10 : "How Hooterville was Floundered" - it's revealed there are 52 governors in the USA
S6/Ep20 : "King Oliver I" - it's revealed the state motto is "Have a Good Day"

In our reality there are 50 states and 50 governors (plus DC). In Green Acres there is a 51st state, the Kangaroo State, with state motto "Have a Good Day".

We can assume this new landmass is somewhere in the northeast part of the country, reasonably close to Chicago due to how frequently that city is mentioned.

Can't be Northeast because it's not 80 degrees in the wintertime there.

Tennessee could be plausible, seeing as how our weather is so chaotic here....we literally started Oct in the 90s and ended it in the 30s!

BUT we know Hooterville is 300 miles from Chicago as Oliver once stated, so it could be 300 miles in any direction....for some reason I always wanted to think it was in Iowa or Kansas.

If you wanted to surmise it was up North, I guess you could say it was close to St. Olaf, Rose's hometown from Golden Girls lol The way she described St. Olaf sounded a lot like Hooterville.

300 miles from Chicago is pretty interesting. If you head down to one of the likely places, southern Missouri, from Chicago you'd have to go right past St Louis, and that would be the big city. Places like Nashville or Louisville weren't such important cities then.

They never specified a state because that state would be HUMILIATED!
