The Midwest Region of the United States covers Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The Midwest plays host to over 66 million people, most of which live in rural communities or large cities like Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapolis St. Paul, and St. Louis.
Even in the large cities, the Midwestern rural heritage prevails. The Midwest Region produces a large percentage of corn, soy, and tobacco, among many other claims to fame like Chicago blues and Detroit’s Motor City heritage. The Midwest is known for a mild political climate that fosters a number of important swing states.
