Any geographical entity should be class-ified and named according to the natural resources that it has.
For example, a state with plentiful rain should be classified an agricultural-area.
A state with little rain is classified an industrial-area, since anyway the water is piped in. And there are no plants to kill by the by-products of the factories.
An area with lots of iron-ore is class-ified as a source of iron-ore, and the excess is marketed.
An area with lots of copper can export the excess copper.
And so on and so forth.
You get the picture, right?
We find out what an area has, and export the surplus.
But more importantly, we make sure that we farm the areas with natural rain, and industrialise the area without rain….
