Iowa is the 30th most populous state in the United States and the 26th largest in terms of land size.

About 525,333 residents in the state are age 65 and older, and about 70% of people in the state are homeowners.

Named after the Iowa native tribe that lived in the area, the first European explorers in the area were French. During the coming centuries, the land changed hands between the French and Spanish until finally being purchased by the U.S. as part of the Louisiana Purchase. Soon after, farming and agriculture became mainstays for the state, continuing to this day as Iowa is the number one producer of corn in the country. Iowa became the 29th state in 1846.

Des Moines is the state capital and the most populous city in the state, with about 210,000 residents. The city is considered one of the best cities in the country for insurance companies and it is famous for being the site of the first caucuses during the presidential primary season. From 1942 until 2009, it was illegal to dance in the city between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

After Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport are the next largest cities in the state.
Iowa was ranked 12 on Forbes list of ‘Best Places to Do Business.’ Three of the largest companies based in the state are Casey’s General Stores, Rockwell Collins, Principal Financial Group.
