The two (2) religious, business, agricultural, or political elements most likely to be found or Quakers, and Lutherans. South Carolina; concentrated much on the export of tobacco, vegetables, livestock, fruits, grain cotton, and corn. The colony was also one of the warmest, and the region manufactured iron. The New Hampshire; the colony was wealthy is natural features like mountains, hills, and plateaus. The colony was a manufacturer of textile as well as agricultural land.

The Southern region could be better for a colonist due to the availability of natural resources such as evergreen forests and lots of rivers. Presence of cash crops such as cotton and tobacco further increase the value of the Southern region from a colonist perspective because trade and industrialization could succeed in such areas. Moreover, labor from slave facilitated plantation farming which could boost business. The freedom to religion could benefit colonist that wished to spread religious belief to their workers.
