thanks for the feedback - looks like I don't have any freetime to
made the state/province validation. Now you can fill that as you

The scoring logic of Tlf is very difficult, and hardcoded
deepthly. Now the US states and Canadian provinces doesn't
calculated as multiplier. Only you can fill the state or
