While it was once known primarily for oil drilling and iron working, the Okie state now boasts one of the fastest-growing modern economies, driven by telecommunications and biotechnology companies. It also has one of the highest per-capita incomes in America yet one of the lowest cost-of-living indexes. Oklahoma City and Tulsa are large, fun cities, yet half the state is made up of mountains, state parks and nature preserves. Oklahoma has an ethnically diverse population, which accounts for its eclectic range of arts, from Native American crafts to outstanding ballet and jazz performances. It also has a strong school system and is considered a model for early childhood schooling.
