伊利諾州(Illinois

伊利諾州,也被稱做林肯的故鄉,雖然並不是林肯的出生地,但因為林肯曾為本州議員並從此開始其傳奇的政治生涯,故得此名。伊利諾州位於國土中西部,如同美國的心臟,本州的州民似乎也為此而沾沾自喜,以美國的地理中心和美國的文化中心自居。伊利諾州宛如整個美國的縮影,小至村莊農田大至世界級都市與工業重鎮都可以在本州看見。

經濟活動方面,伊利諾州盛產玉米與大豆,另外也因為地處美國中部,本州的芝加哥市是美國非常重要的工業和交通運輸樞紐,奧黑爾國際機場是全世界最繁忙的機場,年度飛機起降架次為世界最冠。

位於伊利諾州的芝加哥市,雖然不是本州的首都,卻是最大的城市,更是僅次於紐約市與洛杉磯的全美第三大都會區,是美國最重要的商業中心之一,有高達十二間的財富五百強的企業總部設立於此。除此之外,也有多所世界頂級的高等學術機構位在芝加哥:芝加哥大學、西北大學、伊利諾大學芝加哥分校等。
