How do you secede from a state?

I have a longer post coming tomorrow on a rage-worthy topic. For now, let’s talk about something happier, or at least something that doesn’t make me weep for humanity.

What does it take to secede from a state? Not from a country, from a state. A group of people in Tuscon want to find out. The group wants to form a separate state out of Pima County, one that would actually be larger and more populous than several currently existing states. There’s one small nitpicky thing. If the county does become a state, the state would be called Pima County. Why not just call it Pima?

And how exactly does one secede from a state? Can one secede their own property from a state and run their own state? You’d get to be your own ruler. I’m just saying.
