Pick the magic wand tool.  Click the state to select it.  Hit
CTRL-I to invert the selection.  Hit CTRL-K to delete everything but
the state.  Hit CTRL-I to re-invert the selection again (the state is
once again selected).  Switch to the crop tool and click "From Selection"
in the window that pops up.  Crop!  Save-As.  All done!
