Delaware was the first state to endorse the United States Constitution, and so is considered "The First State." It is one of the smallest but most densely populated states in the U.S. with just over 800,000 people.
The state was named after the Delaware River, a name used by colonists for the indigenous people in the area. The state consists of only three counties, the lowest of any state. Delaware's largest city is Wilmington, followed by Dover and Newark.
One of Delaware’s advantages is as a corporate tax haven, which supply’s about one-fifth of its revenue. Delaware has more than a million registered corporations, including fifty percent of all public and Fortune 500 companies. Delaware is ranked third as a bike-friendly state and lists tourism as its fourth-largest employer.
Among its many beach resorts, Rehoboth Beach often bills itself as "The Nation's Summer Capital" because it is a frequent summer vacation destination for those from Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
Of late, Delaware has seen an increase in layoffs and downsizing among major corporations, including DuPont, General Motors, Chrysler, MBNA, and Astra Zeneca, but still ranks number one in economic output per job.
