Federated state of the central USA, 180.516 km², 5.842.713 residents (2006
estimate), 32 residents/km², capital: Jefferson
City. Borders: Iowa (N), Illinois (E), Kentucky and Tennessee (SE), Arkansas (S), Oklahoma (SW), Kansas (W), Nebraska (NW). "The
geographical map of the state is on page 38 of the 15th volume."
The territory is flat in the E and gently undulating in the NW, while the
central-southern and south-western sectors are affected by the Ozark
plateau. The main streams are Mississippi, which forms the eastern border,
and Missouri, which marks the northwestern border and, bending to the E, crosses
the state until it flows into Mississippi. The Grand River, Chariton, Osage and
Gasconade descend to Missouri; to Mississippi they pay the Des Moines, the
Fabius, the Salt River, the Meramec and the Black River. The climate is
continental, with harsh winters and hot and humid summers; rainfall varies from
900 to 1200 mm per year. Main economic resources are agriculture (cereals,
soybeans, tobacco, vegetables, fruit), livestock (pigs, cattle), forestry and
subsoil exploitation (lead, coal, iron, zinc, barite, oil); the industry,
especially active in the mechanical, food, electrical, chemical, tanning, glass
and paper sectors, is concentrated in the two major cities:Kansas City. The
other major cities, besides the capital, are Springfield, Independence, Saint
Joseph, Florissant, Columbia City and Joplin.

the compromise of Missouri. Its economy, originally based on the fur trade,
agriculture and breeding, developed considerably after the advent of the railway
(at the beginning of the second half of the 19th century). After the Secession
war, in which Missouri remained faithful to the Union despite conflicts, in 1875
he introduced a new Constitution that abolished slavery.
