I think there is definitely some wisdom to having the capital of a political region be separated from the Population and economic hub city.

But in Modern times do we even really need capitals? Why not spread the departments and staff of various agencies to the places they do their work. Representatives can stay in their own home areas to have ready access to their constituents. The President Does not need a specific residence he can live where he's from. The Department of Energy could be in Houston, the FDA could be in Omaha surrounded by agribusiness

Maybe people would have less suspicion of regulators if they knew who they were and those regulators were around the industries they were tasked with regulating and not part of patronage network out of the far away capitol.

Just a crazy idea.

That being said I wish the capitol of AZ was still in Prescott, hell i wish Prescott was the concentration of population instead of Phoenix. The climate is so much better but water would be a bigger problem.
