Kansas’ reputation as America’s heartland is well deserved. Equidistant from both the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts. The geographic center of the 48 contiguous United States is located in Smith County, Kansas, near the city of Lebanon. Home to legendary Old West cow town Dodge City and part of the historic Santa Fe Trail, Kansas is bordered by Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado and Missouri and shares with Missouri its most populous area—the Kansas part of Kansas City, which straddles the state line.
The manufacturing sector is responsible for much of Kansas’ industry, with the aerospace industry making up the majority of the state’s manufacturing jobs. Spirit Aero systems and Cessna are two of the best-known aerospace manufacturers in the state. Other well-known industrial names that call Kansas home include Sprint-Nextel, General Motors and Garmin. Oil and natural gas are other major industries in Kansas; the state ranks 8th in the nation for production of both resources.
One of America’s foremost agricultural states, Idaho is sparsely populated, but well connected. Bordered by Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Canada, the major cities of Idaho Falls and Boise are situated in the south-east and south-west of the state.
Despite its landlocked position, western Idaho has a primarily maritime climate, tempering the potential severity of the winter weather in this northern state. The south and east of the state have a semi-arid climate, similar to that of central states on the plains. Most of Idaho, particularly its center, is covered by forest. The major road networks serve the far south, north and east of the state, with the center and west relying primarily on state road networks.
