: 3: Perhaps you meant in this State. I only know of one state hereabouts. But I am curious.

Hmmmmmm. We think you may be on to something here. Just to prove we aren't so smart after all, we've fallen into the old trap of thinking "corporus fictus," "nom de guerre," and various other "stuff" respecting names spelled in all caps. Now, we know about corporation sole as an ecclesiastical term for ministers and bishops who act only in the name of their churches and are taken care of by the churches, but your question begs the question of: Is the state trying to say we are doing business as corporation sole when they assign us those fictitious names? If so, what a perversion! Where's a good lightning bolt when you need it?
Anyway, we don't pretend to know any answers on this one, but certainly thank you for presenting the question as food for thought. I'm sure we're not the only ones chewing on this one right now, and would like to hear more from others who have contemplated this question and, hopefully, gotten into researching it.
