Day 47, Iowa, USA

Iowa is a state located in the Midwestern region, an area often referred to as the "American Heartland" or the "Corn State"

It derives its name from the Ioway people, one of the many American Indian tribes that occupied the state at the time of European exploration.

Iowa is often known as the "Food Capital of the World", but Iowa's economy, culture, and landscape are diverse.

In the mid and late 20th century, Iowa's agricultural economy transitioned to a diversified economy of advanced manufacturing, processing, financial services, biotechnology, and green energy production.
