Midwest (United States of America)
The Midwest is a region of the United States of America known for steel mills, auto plants, farming, coal mining, and other blue-collar industries.
The term "Midwest" refers to a collection of states just east of center in the United States. This area is sometimes referred to as the "heart" of America and is often associated with agriculture and industry. The culture of the midwest is generally acknowledged to be "down to earth", as much of the population is far from the influences of coastal cities and cultural centers such as New York City and Los Angeles. The biggest city in the midwest region is Chicago, Illinois, the third largest city in the U.S.
