Moon-Gaia-River-Tofu it is. A former neighbor of mine once described Hampshire County as "behind the tofu curtain".
That's the Noho (*gag*) crowd, of course. The Hamp crowd (i.e. people who have been there for more than 5 years) would be more amused by the Springfield option. Having married a Hamp native, I count myself among the latter. Besides, Mike Albano, de facto governor of Even-Farther-North-Carolina, keeps reminding me of Mayor Quimby. Man, wouldn't that get the Advocate in a snit? :)
Another interesting name would be Tallahassee. Still the wrong language group, but at least it means "hilly land". If we did that, though, we'd have to put the new capitol up at Whitcomb Summit in the town of Florida. Bonus: Vermont would no longer have the only state capitol without a McDonald's.
I thought leviramsey, ragabr, and I were the only East Dakotans on K5. Whereabouts are you? We should all get together sometime when they're back at the Zoo.
