With the exception of Hawaii, Indiana is the smallest state west of the Appalachian Mountains and the name "Indiana" is believed to mean "the land of the Indians".
Indiana's economy today is based primarily on manufacturing and services and on a smaller part - agriculture. The northern part of Indiana lies on the mainstream of the industrial belt that stretches from Pennsylvania and New York to Illinois. Agriculture activity is concentrated mainly in the central region of Indiana.
Historically part of the North, there are several parts of Indiana that display Southern characteristics.
