CONNECTICUT was named Quinnehtukqut by the Native Americans for the "great tidal river" which splits it in two before spilling out into the Long Island Sound and washing the old whaling ports of the coast. This small and densely populated state is a sort of conservative, high-rent suburb of New York City, enabling commuters to earn Big Apple salaries while avoiding New York state and city taxes.

Connecticut's first white settlers arrived in the 1630s: refugees from Massachusetts seeking liberty, good farmland and trading opportunities (not necessarily in that order). The area soon became a center for "Yankee ingenuity", prospering through the invention and marketing (often by the notorious and not always honorable Yankee peddlers) of many a useful little household object. Although hit very badly by English raids in the Revolutionary War, its role in providing the war effort with crucial supplies made it known as "the provisions state".

After the war, the original charter of Connecticut's first colonists was used as a model for the American Constitution and gave rise to another nickname: "the Constitution state". It continued to prosper during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with steady industrialization and lucrative whaling along the southeastern coast. Today, much of the old industry, especially in the north, has withered away, leaving areas of green countryside, untroubled by noisy interstates, many verdant forests and the idyllic rural villages that typify New England's PR image – but also unemployment, poverty, and a degree of displacement. New Haven in particular, home to Yale University, faces distinctly un-New England problems like drug wars, homelessness and violent crime.

The linchpins of Connecticut's economy – insurance companies, medical research and military bases – hardly make for pleasing aesthetics, as demonstrated by the interminably dull capital city, Hartford; and even the historic and otherwise attractive coastline is marred by some unlovely stretches of sprawling gray concrete.
