Is "Er fährt nach diesem Bundesland" incorrect?

"nach" does not work here. You can use "nach" with towns or some countries.

why not : Er fährt zum Bundesland ?

You use "zu" or "zum" when you go to buildings (Rathaus, Bahnhof...) or human being (zu seiner Oma, zum Freund).

"German state" is pretty a strange translation for "Bundesland". Maybe "federal state"?
