Iowa is known for Famous people like Hoover, Wallace, Roosevelt and John Wayne, like BBD said.
They are called the corn state because they produce the most corn.
They also have the largest production in Hogs, Quaker Oats and Popcorn.

Iowa is known for Iowans. More Iowans are born in Iowa than in any other State.

Don't harsh my zen, Jen!
Those of us in the great state to the north refer to them as Iwegians. Their state letters spell out "I Owe the World an Apology."

Other than that, I agree with whoever has dear friends from there. Good people.

IOWA is actually an acronym. So when you see their state license plate, remember that stands for:

Idiots
Out
Wandering
Around

In WI, they get called Blue Whistlers at times. Because of the blue license plates and their Carhardt overalls, and the low whistle they make when receiving a fine from the DNR for violating hunting and fishing laws... regularly.
