    Depends on where you want to go and how you want to get there

    If you don't have a job waiting for you in your new state, you need enough money for several months of living expense.

    "Another state" could mean 3000+ miles or it could me 1 mile.  

    Assuming you mean far enough away that you won't have the same job, then it can get tricky.  How easily you think you can get a job at the new location is very important.  That varies by person and profession.  Can you take your job with you?  (work remote).  If so, then all you need is money for the new place you're renting (I assume) plus moving expenses.  Those moving expenses will vary greatly depending on how much stuff you have and how far you're moving.

    As you can see, there is no universal answer, but those questions and situations above are what you should be considering.

    If you have to ask, its a bad idea.

    Relocating to another state is like any other move. Concluding your obligations where you are (selling your house, terminating or finishing your lease, shutting off utilities, packing, etc.). If you already have a job where you're going, it may be a few weeks until you receive a paycheck. You'll need enough money to pay rent for at least three months (while job hunting), eat, gas up your car, etc. About $5k should do it unless you're going to a very expensive (or inexpensive) area.

    Collect all the things you can/want to take with you, find transportation for you and things to new state. The end. 

    You might want a job, housing, etc. lined up before moving but there is nothing to say you can't move from North Carolina to California and live on the streets. All you need to do is move over a border. 

    This is assuming you are using states as in the 50 US states and not member states of the UN/EU.
