Iowa is a state in the Midwestern locale of the United States, lined by the Mississippi River toward the east and the Missouri River and Big Sioux River toward the west. It is lined by six states: Wisconsin toward the northeast, Illinois toward the east and southeast, Missouri toward the south, Nebraska toward the west, South Dakota toward the northwest, and Minnesota toward the north.
During the eighteenth and early nineteenth hundreds of years, Iowa was a part of French Louisiana and Spanish Louisiana; its state flag is patterned after the flag of France. After the Louisiana Purchase, individuals laid the foundation for an agriculture-based economy in the heart of the Corn Belt.
