The Illinois Country is the second largest state in the USA by population and the third by land area. It was created when the Illinois country was partitioned between itself and Ohio, to increase French-speaking representation in the Second Estate, but today is evenly split between English and French-speakers. Its coastal areas are dominated by liberals, and its inland by conservatives, making it a crucial battleground state. The governor is currently Patrick Quinn, Democrat.
