16. Jar Jar Binks – Mississippi
Much of the state of Mississippi is covered by forests. It also contains main bogs, ponds, and of course, rivers. The Mississippi River has a history of flooding due to the amount of rainfall that hits the state each year. The state is home to many species of wildlife, but we have a feeling one specific character would enjoy calling Mississippi home.
Jar Jar Binks was a Gungan from the planet Naboo. As an outcast to his homeworld, Jar Jar went into politics and secured an alliance between his people and Queen Padmé Amidala. He then became a representative in the Galactic Senate. Jar Jar had the best of intentions but he was often exploited by his peers which made him an easy target.
The Gungan species could live on both water and land. They often lived in swamps or in underwater cities within their home planet. They were amphibious and shared similar characteristics to that of a frog. Their lungs allowed them to stay underwater for a very long time. Living in the wetlands of Mississippi would not be an issue for a creature like Jar Jar Binks. Even though he often carries a bad reputation for his clumsy behavior, he always meant well.
