"although the poverty in Mississippi would potentially be a drag on the new nation."

If multiple States secede from the U.S. and form a new association, they will not collectively constitute a new Nation. Each of the States is already a sovereign Nation unto itself.

The word State is synonymous with Nation. There is a reason they are not called something like "provinces".

The Pledge of Allegiance reference to "one nation [under God] indivisible" was put there as propaganda. It was a post-Lincoln concept.
