Federated state of the central USA, 200,350 km², 1,768,331 residents (2006
estimate), 9 inhabitants / km², capital: Lincoln. Borders: South
Dakota (N), Iowa (E), Missouri (SE), Kansas (S), Colorado (SW), Wyoming (W).
Nebraska is predominantly flat, or undulating, in the eastern and central
sectors; proceeding towards W, the altitude gradually increases and the
landscape becomes more varied due to the intense erosive action of the rivers,
which have affected deep valleys. The northwestern part of the state is affected
by massive meteoric erosion phenomena, which have given rise to badlands. The
main rivers are Missouri, which marks the eastern border, with
the Niobrara tributaries and Platte, and the Republican River, a tributary of
the Kansas River. There are numerous lake basins, however largely
artificial. The climate is continental, with strong temperature fluctuations:
rainfall is around 700 mm per year. The main economic resources of the state are
agriculture (cereals, vegetables, fruit, soy, potatoes, sugar beets), cattle and
pig breeding, the exploitation of the subsoil (oil, cement marl) and industry,
developed in food sectors (sugar factories, canneries, milling complexes),
mechanical, electronic and pharmaceutical sectors. Important cities, in addition
to the capital, are Omaha, Grand Island, Hastings and Fremont.
Passed to the United States when in 1803 they bought Louisiana (of which it
was part), it was for a long time neglected by pioneers and economic operators,
until it was organized in the Territory in 1854. The dramatic congressional
debate centered on its future as a free or slave state relating to the Kansas-Nebraska-Act,
by which the Missouri Compromise was overcome with known consequences for the
future of the Union. The current Constitution was approved in 1866 and the
following year the state was admitted to the Union. At the end of the
century XIX the populists achieved notable successes.
