Looking for a particular area to move to in terms of career growth? Rhode Island has everything you'll want and then some, and we'll be more than glad to help you make it happen. The Northeastern state of Rhode Island is interesting in that it comprises the smallest overall land area of any U.S. state, while maintaining a considerable variety of historical and economic contributions to the United States, spanning back to its substantially early history as one of the original thirteen colonies to achieve statehood after separating itself from British rule. In fact, Rhode Island was the first out of all of the original colonies to declare itself independent, preceding the first among others by over two months. Roughly 15% of the state's land area is comprised of bays, lending itself to its official state nickname of the Ocean State. Providence serves as the state's capital city, while also serving as its largest metropolitan area. While only about one thousand square miles encapsulate the land area of the nation's smallest state, it maintains a higher than expected population, due almost entirely in part to the fact that the state features the second highest population density out of the entire United States. The largest employers in the state include the Lifespan Hospital group, a corporate entity which encompasses a wide number of state hospitals, along with the state and federal government.
Somewhat ironically, the state of Rhode Island's official long form name is technically “the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations,” which means that the smallest state in the United States happens to have the longest title by a considerable amount. This is perhaps an attempt to make up for its shortcomings in land area. Brevity, however, also lends itself fittingly to the smallest state in the country, with its official state motto simply being made up of a single, four letter word: Hope.
