Geologists have today discovered a fifty first American state the size of France.
The team discovered the state hidden under texas whilst attempting to track a group of beavers who'd escaped from the zoo. President Obama descrived the discovery as "something we really didn't expect". A group of experts have been sent to explore the land which had apparently fallen into the sea and slipped under texas over four hundred years ago.
Conspiracy theorists have claimed George Bush had personally hidden the state during his time in office to avoid awkward questioning. Congress released new plans for the state which will be shipped around south America and fixed on to California.
