Known as the Peach Tree State and the Empire State of the South, Georgia has a long, somewhat tumultuous history in the United States. It was the last of the established 13 colonies and one of the first states to secede from the Union in 1861. It is the fourth largest state in terms of land and is home to 9.8 million people. As of 2005, the demographics were 67% Caucasian, 30% African American, 3% Asian, and 0.6% Native American. The largest cities in Georgia are Atlanta . Augusta. Columbus, Savannah. and Athens .
Atlanta has the largest influence on the state's economy. Over the years, it had experienced tremendous growth in the real estate, communications, and service industries. The state's $396 billion in gross
domestic product, however, comes from a range of industries including agriculture, textile, mineral and timber, tourism, and manufacturing. Several US military installations are located there as well as a number of corporate headquarters including Coca-Cola, Hooters, and Delta Airlines.
Georgia's unemployment rate exceeds the national average resting at 10.6% as of June 2010. The state contributes some of this to long term employees ceasing to look for work in this trouble economic climate.
