All I can say in anticipation is that I hope Rhode Island as we all know is a small state of the USA and not a country as Hawaii was elevated to by someone (??).The Hawaiian Islands were a country of islands and ruled by a Hawaiian Monarchyuntil taken over by the USA.Good luck residents of the state of Rhode Island, someone may elevate you to a country on the Atlantic Coastline - God forbid if Rhode Island finds itself somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico or off the Pacific coastline of the USA!B J Hunnicut

It's impractical to have a capital in two different cities.
