Which domain would you develop city or state?

If you had the choice between developing two domain names one for the largest city in a state and one for the state itself which would you develop and why?

e.g. Georgia.com v. Atlanta.com

Assuming all relevant names were available it would depend entirely on the focus of the site.

My answer depends, in part, on the answer to the question "Why build A or B?". To increase, "show" or test the value (for SEO/other purposes) of the domain? To build a website just because you have think you "the domain" that will support the project?

Also, what's the competition in either space?

What's your knowledge of either A or B?

What resources (time, money, other) you are prepared to devote to A vs B?

Both ;)
"between"..is tying your own hands..unnecessarily ( if you have access to both domain names ? )..hence ..develop Both..differently..;)

Interesting thanks!

The names are available.

A or B are both interesting enough to feed a future passion.

A is a subset of B really, unless A and B have different focuses. I was wondering if there was an unwritten rule/natural fit towards building city sites or state sites and/or a natural user bias/preference for one?

Both; is an interesting idea. If both sites had the same focus then using the Georgia example it could have sections for Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Savannah …Marietta and Smyrna. Would it be a good thing/bad thing to have the bulk of content and data for the dominant Atlanta mainly on the second domain instead?
