Iowa was originally a French colony but, was bought by America in the Louisiana Purchase. It was then settled and became a state in 1846. Iowa has the 10th lowest crime rate of all the 50 states. Iowa’s economy is heavily based in green energy and renewable fuels, and is the nation’s largest producer of corn and ethanol.
In recent years, Iowa has also become home for many insurance and financial firms, including Wellmark Blue Cross & Blue Shield, and Wells Fargo. Bio-research has also become a marketable industry in the state as of late, housing many of the top biological research and manufacturing facilities.
