Is there any reason why the Carolinas should be referred to collectively, aside from their names and close proximity? There is no special name for other pairs of states: Kentucky and Tennesee, New York and New Jersey, etc.
If there is some relationship, be it formal, historical, cultural, whatever, that causes these two states to be taken as a pair, this article should describe it (or them).
It does seem that they are (with some frequency) taken as a pair. If their names is the only reason, I suppose that should be in the article.
As it stands, this seems to act like a disambiguation page. Well, something like one, at least.
