Congratulations, Vermont! You’ve dethroned New Hampshire to return to your rightful position as the least religious state in the country.

Gallup’s annual ranking shows that only 21% of the people in Vermont consider themselves “very religious,” the lowest number in the nation. Meanwhile, 58% of people in the state call themselves “non-religious.” No one beat them on that front, either.

Last year’s champion, New Hampshire, apparently rose to grace. Only 20% of the citizens last year were “very religious,” but that number jumped to 29% this year.

As for the other side, Mississippi is the most religious state in the country for the ninth straight year. 59% of people there are “very religious” compared to only 12% who are “non-religious.”

Makes you wonder: Who the hell are these 12% of non-religious people in Mississippi?
