Kentucky is an Iroquois word that means “land of tomorrow.” Before Kentucky became a state, it was known as Transylvania. Transylvania means a pleasant wooded area, and truly the state lies within a mixture of distinct regions.
Kentucky covers 102,896 square kilometers with three physiographic regions, the Appalachian plateau, the coastal plain, and the interior lowlands. It borders the states of Indians, Ohio, and Illinois. Therefore, due to the regions and climate, agriculture, manufacturing, and mining greatly influence Kentucky’s economy.
