Wyoming is a Sunshine State with enough assets to cover its debt.
Elected officials have created a Taxpayer Surplus™, which is each taxpayer's share of money available after state bills have been paid.
TIA's Taxpayer Surplus™ measurement incorporates both assets and liabilities, not just pension debt.
Wyoming has $12.7 billion of assets available to pay the state's bills totaling $8.8 billion.
Wyoming has $4 billion available after bills have been paid, which breaks down to $19,600 per taxpayer.
Wyoming's reported net position is overstated by $238.8 million, largely because the state delays recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
