170 miles due west of the Yellowstone super-volcano lies the small town of Challis, Idaho – the residents of which have been shaken from a sudden swarm of earthquakes.

The overall ranking is a combination of freedoms from categories including fiscal, regulatory, personal, economic, liability, property rights, tax burden, and many more.

The top five most free states (according to their weighting methodology)
North and South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma.

The least free states (according to their weighting methodology)
Rhode Island, Hawaii, New Jersey, California, and New York.
