Of Germany’s 16 states, these 2 at opposite ends of the country begin with the same letter & are the largest & smallest

|Caity Willox, a course logistics specialist from Skokie, Illinois
|Hilary Fried, a retired box office cashier from Milford, Connecticut
|Marcus Gresham, a WRAP facilitator from Corydon, Indiana (1-day total: $20,401)
What are Bavaria and Bremen?
It’s not often that I say this about a clue, but this episode was taped four weeks before the Tournament of Champions; thus, I must ask: why was this Final Jeopardy! not saved for the Tournament? To me, this is unequivocally a Tournament-level Final, as the knowledge required here seems deep and a lot to ask for a regular game.
On with the actual clue: Germany’s 16 states: Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Hesse, Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein, and Thuringia. Bavaria is the largest in area at about 27,240 square miles, and Bremen is the smallest at 161 square miles. The State of Bremen contains both the city of Bremen and the exclave of Bremerhaven (Bremen’s North Sea port on the east bank of the Weser River).
