You need to rewrite or copy to the local code pool the following class Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping

To rewrite:

class Company_Module_Model_Shipping_Shipping extends Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping
{
    public function collectCarrierRates($carrierCode, $request)
    {
        if (!$this->_isAvailable($carrierCode, $request)) {
           return $this;
        }
        return parent::collectCarrierRates($carrierCode, $request);
    }

    /**
     * @param string $carrierCode
     * @param Varien_Object $request
     * @return bool
     */
    protected function _isAvailable($carrierCode, $request)
    {
        $regionCode = $request->getDestRegionCode();
        switch ($carrierCode) {
            case 'flatrate':
                if ($regionCode == 'xyz') {
                    return false;
                }
                break;
            case 'freeshipping':
                if ($regionCode == 'abc') {
                    return false;
                }
                break;
        }
        return true;
    }
}

If you want to copy the following class to the local code pool, find the method collectCarrierRates and add the following lines before the core code.

if (!$this->_isAvailable($carrierCode, $request)) {
    return $this;
}

Add new method _isAvailable, you can use the same method as indicated above for the rewriting case.

You can move the hardcoded region dependency to config and make it user friendly.

As far as I can see there are no events in shipping (in payment there is payment_method_is_active). There are some on checkout level but I don't know appropriate for shipping. So I can suggest you to copy app/code/core/Mage/Shipping/Model/Carrier/Freeshipping.php and app/code/core/Mage/Shipping/Model/Carrier/Flatrate.php to app/code/local and to change them. In Flatrate.php -> public function collectRates change first line in it:

if (!$this->getConfigFlag('active')) {

to

if (!$this->getConfigFlag('active') || $request->getDestRegionCode() == 'xyz') {

and in Freeshipping.php -> public function collectRates change again this:

if (!$this->getConfigFlag('active')) {

to

if (!$this->getConfigFlag('active') || $request->getDestRegionCode() == 'abc') {

or something like this. Another solution is to add new setting for region/state in the configuration of the methods and then to add a check for it in app/code/core/Mage/Shipping/Model/Carrier/Abstract.php -> public function checkAvailableShipCountries.
