Lansing is the 5th largest city in Michigan State. It serves a population of nearly 115,000 inhabitants and is also the state capital. The city is situated within the Counties of Ingham and Eaton. The whole Lansing Metropolitan Area is called locally as "Mid-Michigan", a center for government, education, business and culture. The population of its Metropolitan Statistical Area is 464,036.

The area's educational institutions comprise nursing and medical schools, a veterinary school, two law schools (including the Thomas M. Cooley Law School) and Michigan State University. Government institutions comprise the state capital, a federal court, the state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. The region is home to the head offices of four national insurance businesses and high-tech manufacturing.

The city of Lansing vied with the city of Detroit to become the state capital during 1847. Lansing, that was a small community back then, was chosen partly due to its central location. By 1859, Lansing became incorporated as a city with a population of a few thousand. As Lansing grew, a state capitol building was constructed and a railroad was built through the city. When Olds Motor Vehicle Company was established in the city of Lansing during 1897, the growth of the city increased as it became a significant industrial center. Automotive manufacturing and other industries prospered. Lansing has become more diversified in recent decades, with the expansion of manufacturing, government, healthcare, banking, education and insurance. The services sector is based mostly on healthcare.

General Motors operates an assembly plant in Lansing, in addition to several other manufacturing facilities. Numerous residents are employed by government, biotechnology and information technology companies, and by national insurance businesses: Auto-Owners Insurance, Jackson National Life, Michigan Millers Insurance Company and the Accident Fund.

Prima Civitas is a job-creation initiative. Launched in the year 2006 by Michigan State University in partnership with the city of Lansing and East Lansing, it is intended to boost the area's technology industries.
