The Midwest state is, physically, the largest of the ten states of the Junior State of America. It consists of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, and the western half of Indiana. The Chicagoland area is the center of Midwest JSA, with growing spheres in Wisconsin and Michigan.

Each year at Spring State, the Midwest elects a Governor and Lieutenant Governor to lead the Midwest in the succeeding year. The Governor and Lieutenant Governor then choose a group of qualified statesmen to help them lead the state, as their cabinet. Meet this year’s Governor and LtG, along with their cabinet, here.
