アメリカ合衆国北東部、エリー湖に面する地域で州都である、最大の都市はコロンブスである。州の人口は
1950年から1990年の間に5倍に増加した。現在は1200万人の人々を抱える。19世紀に全米屈指の原油産出地
であったことはあまり知られていない。1979年に本田技研工業が米国で最初の乗用車の現地に踏み切った
土地でもある。

2007年5月に職場、レストラン、バーに於ける全面禁煙規制を施行した。すべての公共建物内の喫煙は禁止され、
入口に禁煙標識を掲示せねばならない。すべての灰皿および類似装置は撤去せねばならない。2008年6月、
従業員をタバコ副流煙の害から守るため、州最高裁判所は今まで例外扱いであったプライベートクラブでの
喫煙行為を禁止した。法令に違反した場合は個人は100ドル、飲食店などの施設は最高、2500ドルの罰金を
支払わねばならない。

公用車などの車内での喫煙禁止は、2008年4月にオハイオ州カルバー知事が法案に署名したが、同年11月には
知事の妻が公用車内で喫煙したことが報道され、物議を醸した。しかし、このことはオハイオ州の受動喫煙
防止法をかえって有名にしたようだ。彼女は2007年に一旦禁煙したが、喫煙の誘惑に負け、再び吸い始めたと
メディアは伝えている。
