One of my friends in America has sent me some codes to show where he lives.

ROY, LYS, INI, RAC, NIL, ROE, RAM, YES, CIT, DOH, SAM, IHS

Can you figure out where in America he is?

Most of this was worked out by Deepthinker101:

This is from

The original 13 colonies, each of the three letters is a backwards portion of each of the colonies: New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire in that order

Your friend lives in

Delaware since it is the only one of the first 13 colonies that isn't listed

As for the people who downvoted, please understand that I had every intention to include @Deepthinker101's name in my answer, just forgot. And also, I created my own answer because Deepthinker had (what I thought) some inconsistent logic, even though he had the bulk of it. He also had the checkmark meaning I didn't think the checkmark would swap to me! Please understand what went on out here, please do not downvote because of that, again, I didn't mean to steal the thunder, just wanted to create my own storm using some of Deepthinker's low pressure system.

If you upvote this answer, upvote Deepthinker's too, I almost definitely couldn't have done it without 'em

New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Georgia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire

So your friend is in the:

Odd one out which is Delaware
