Look, we love Idaho as much as the next person. But, if you live in Boise and the surrounding Treasure Valley, things can feel a little hectic. There's no doubt that the Boise area is continuing to boom and there are no signs of the growth slowing down.

A Wealthy Walmart Exec Has A Solution

A Walmart executive by the name of Marc Lore has dreams of establishing what people are calling a "utopia." Lore wants to name the city "Telosa" and establish the town in one of six locations by 2030. Those locations include:

  • Nevada
  • Utah
  • Idaho
  • Arizona
  • Texas
  • Appalachian Region

Now, maybe it's because we don't hear about cities or towns being established much these days, but there are a lot of people who feel that the goal here is to establish a utopia or a "perfect society."

The official site for Telosa says that it's not the goal despite all of the rumors.

"No, we are absolutely not attempting to create a utopia," the site reads, "Utopian projects are focused on creating a perfect, idealistic state — we are not. We are firmly grounded in reality and what is possible."

Rather, the city's goal is to provide a "higher quality" of life for people that aims to provide all of a resident's basic needs within 15 minutes of their neighborhood.

That sounds pretty good... or does it? We would love to hear your thoughts here.

Construction on the new city or "utopia" is set for the year 2030.

WalletHub's Top 15 Best States To Live

In order to determine the best and worst states to live in, WalletHub compared the 50 states across five key dimensions: 1) Affordability, 2) Economy, 3) Education & Health, 4) Quality of Life, and 5) Safety.

We evaluated those dimensions using 51 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable living conditions. For metrics marked with an asterisk (*), the square root of the population was used to calculate the population size in order to avoid overcompensating for minor differences across states.
