IMHO for any nation to have more internal administrative units than strictly required (i.e. additional tax-paid bureaucracy) would only be gratuitously burdensome.

You're correct-my color blind mistake.
In my head I knew what I was saying, but

Maybe it could be brought in as a blue state to balance red Puerto Rico?
You mean to balance Washington DC.

PR. would generally be Democratic but you are kidding yourself if you think it will become a State.
