A midwestern state where you could see a Porshe and a John Deere tractor on the same country road on your way to eat a Pony Shoe (or if you're hungry, a Horse Shoe) with your neighbors who happen to be a farmer, a stock broker, a doctor, and a hippie (i.e., very diverse). Illinoisians are infatuated with the outdoors, as shown by the multitude of state parks throughout the state. Although there sometimes tends to be tension between the Chicagoans and Downstaters, both unite together in their loyalty and pride in Illinois.
Notable cities (from south to north): Decatur, Charleston-Mattoon, Springfield, Danville, Urbana-Champaign, Bloomington, Peoria, Rockford, Rock Island-Moline, Chicago and suburbs.
