"And of the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their kinsmen were at their command."
1st Chronicles 12:32
Issachar's allotment of the Promised Land primarily consisted of the valley of Jezreel. This was the richest farm land in all Israel, which also had access to the Mediterranean Sea. Consequently, the sons of Issachar "drew out the abundance of the sea and the hidden treasures of the sand" (Deut. 33:18-19).
In their abundance, God called them to provided food to the whole of Israel as an "indentured servant" to their brethren among the other tribes (Gen. 19:14-15). The sons of Issachar would be similar to those living in the "bread basket" of America who provide food to the U.S. and the world.
