Virginia sits on the Atlantic Coast of the United States and is commonly referred to as “The Old Dominion”, which was named for being one of the oldest overseas dominions of the King and Queen of England. With agriculture occupying over 30% of the land in Virginia, a large part of the states income comes from soy, hay, peanuts, and tomatoes being the most profitable crop in the state, at one time tobacco used to be the number one grown crop in the state, while no longer the case the state is still the fifth- largest producer of tobacco in the nation.

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.
