So in that scenario the Red State Nation would end up like Australia (an extraction economy) except it would have a lot better agricultural base. One could do worse….

Except that the politics of Australia are not much like that of a red state: it has a very high minimum wage, a strong welfare safety net, and their economy has weathered the recent downturns conspicuously well.
