Kentucky

There are only four commonwealth states in the US, including Kentucky as well as Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. This nametag refers to how the economic system is handled and how voting and politics come into play. The purpose of the commonwealth is to ensure a government based on the “consent of the people”. For the most part, this designation dates back to the days of the original colonies, when the four states were not under English Royal Law.

Bordered by Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and Tennessee, Kentucky has more navigable waterways than any other state in the US. There are different industries that have become prevalent in the state, including bourbon, auto manufacturing, horse racing, tobacco farms, and music.
