Iowa, Vidgo got you covered!
At Vidgo app, we are honored to serve the U.S. state, located in the Midwestern region of the United States and nicknamed “Hawkeye State.” Well-known for its agriculture and farms, the major economy of the state is driven by farms, agriculture, and some industries.
According to Wikipedia, Iowa is a state in the Midwestern United States. Its name comes from the Ioway people, one of the Native American tribes that lived in Iowa. Iowa was a part of New France, but was sold to the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase. Its settlers were mostly farmers: Iowa is a part of the Corn Belt and is often known as the "Food Capital of the World.” However, Iowa's landscape, culture, and economy are diverse, with the economy changing in the second half of the 20th Century to include many kinds of businesses.
In the latter half of the 20th century, Iowa's agricultural economy made the transition to a diversified economy of advanced manufacturing, processing, financial services, information technology, biotechnology, and green energy production. Iowa is the 26th most extensive in land area and the 30th most populous of the 50 United States. Its capital and largest city by population is Des Moines. Iowa has been listed as one of the safest states in which to live.
Iowa is surrounded by the Mississippi River on the east; the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River on the west, and the northern boundary is a line along 43 degrees, 30 minutes north latitude. The southern border is the Des Moines River and a not-quite-straight line along approximately 40 degrees 35 minutes north, as decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in Missouri v. In 1849, after a standoff between Missouri and Iowa known as the Honey War.
Iowa is generally not flat; most of the state consists of rolling hills. Iowa can be divided into eight landforms based on glaciation, soils, topography, and river drainage. The Loess hills lie along the western border of the state, some of which are several hundred feet thick. Northeast Iowa along the Mississippi River is part of the Driftless Zone, consisting of steep hills and valleys which appear almost mountainous.
Iowa is well-known for its agriculture and farms. Its main agricultural outputs are hogs, corn, soybeans, oats, cattle, and dairy products. Its industrial outputs include food processing and machinery. Iowa also produces more ethanol fuel than any other U.S. states.
The government of Iowa has three branches, similar to the federal government of the United States.
The executive branch is headed by the governor, named as “Terry Branstad (R)”. The legislative branch is the Iowa
General Assembly, composed of two houses - the Iowa Senate and the Iowa House of Representatives.
The judicial branch is headed by the Iowa Supreme Court under the chief justice, currently Marsha Ternus.
There are two major political parties in Iowa, the Iowa Democratic Party and the Republican Party of Iowa, as well as several unofficial third parties. No one party is in charge of the government as of 2013; the governor is a Republican and the House has a Republican majority under Kraig Paulsen, but the Senate has a Democratic majority under Mike Gronstal.
