About Tennessee

Officially known as the State of Tennessee, it holds the 36th largest territory and is the 16th most populous state in the nation. Nashville is the state’s largest city and capital and contains the largest metropolitan area. Located in the Southeastern region of the United States, Tennessee has historically taken advantage of its location by becoming a big business operations state. Its borders comprise the states of Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, and Missouri. Major cities in Tennessee are Memphis, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Clarksville.

Since the mid-20th century, Tennessee has catalyzed industrial activity in many areas. However, the state’s economy has grown primarily in the service sector. Lately, Tennessee has received some business-friendly recognition.
