California's got ideal weather, soothing beaches and even the "Happiest Place on Earth."

But it's also ranked the 9th worst in terms of percentage of people with long commutes, the 5th worst when it comes to high unemployment and the 2nd worst for paying a higher share of income for housing. In fact, a new survey has branded the Golden State as the 4th most "stressed state" out of the 48 lower states based on six financial and quality of life indicators.

Florida, Georgia and New Jersey were listed as the top three most stressed states, according to the Movoto.com, a blog by the San Mateo-based online real estate brokerage that did the study.

"California is kind of like the Apple MacBook of the states. It's branded as an awesome, surfer heaven where you can strike it big," the blog stated. "In actuality, you can't afford to live by yourself in a nice part of town unless you've been working for eight years or you're a superstar computer programmer. The proof is in the source code: Californians spend more of their income on housing (26 percent) than any other state besides (New Jersey.)"
