Owner United States Government Established 1818
Purpose US State

Illinois is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States. With Chicago in the northeast, small industrial cities and great agricultural productivity in northern and central Illinois, and natural resources such as coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois was a primary target of back and forth aggression during the civil war. The fighting burned so intensely through Illinois that refugees were fleeing into neighboring states well into a year past the end of the war. Today, very little is left of urban Illinois and many of its cities are deemed inhospitable to human habitation due to pollution from destroyed refineries, chemical plants, power plants, and the use of chemical weapons. Illinois is often dubbed the "Little Dead Zone" due to this tragic fate. Yet, still, pockets of small settlements in rural reaches of Illinois can still be found, though they are few and far between.
