Keep in mind that articles about Mississippi might brush up against another subject.
E.g. An article about a living U.S. Senator from Mississippi is about Mississippi as well as about the U.S. Senate and Biographies.
As a result, you may want to check the list of WikiProjects to see whether another WikiProject exists with established guidelines about the subject of the article in question.
