  • Supérieur (Superior en anglais) est le nom du 51e État des États-Unis qui fut proposé – à plusieurs reprises aux XIXe et XXe siècles – par la scission de la péninsule supérieure du Michigan du reste de l'État homonyme.
  • The proposed State of Superior (or State of Ontonagon) is the name of a "51st state" proposal involving the secession of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (U.P.), and possibly other portions of northern Michigan, and in some proposals, some of the northern counties from the state of Wisconsin as well. The proposal is spurred by cultural differences, geographic separation, and the belief that the capitals in Lansing, Michigan, and Madison, Wisconsin ignore the problems of the "Superior Region." The same area had been referred to as a possible future state named Sylvania by Thomas Jefferson. Named for Lake Superior, the idea has gained serious attention at times, though it is unlikely to ever come to fruition because of the large amount of funding that the area receives from the lower parts of the state, and because of the stronger connections that were cemented between the Upper Peninsula and the rest of the state of Michigan, through the completion of the Mackinac Bridge in 1957, which gave the Upper Peninsula a direct highway connection to the rest of the state.Several prominent legislators, including local U.P. politician Dominic Jacobetti, attempted enacting such legislation in the 1970s, with no success. If only the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were included in the proposed state, it would currently have the smallest population, with its 320,000 residents representing only 60 percent of Wyoming's population, and less than 50 percent of Alaska's.[citation needed] It would rank 40th in land area, larger than Maryland.[citation needed] Its most-populous city, Marquette, has a smaller population than Burlington, Vermont; the latter has the smallest population of an American city of the 50 that is the most populous of its state.[citation needed]

Kilkukrotnie pojawiała się propozycja wyodrębnienia nowego stanu, ze względu na różnice kulturowe i geograficzne.Nazwa pochodzi od Jeziora Górnego, którego angielska nazwa brzmi Superior.
