Federated state of the Northern USA, 183,119 km², 635,867 residents (2006
estimate), 3 residents/km², capital: Bismarck. Borders: Minnesota (E), South
Dakota (S), Montana (W); Canada (N).
The territory, mostly flat to the E, rises slightly towards W, where it
culminates at 1069 m in the White Butte and where it includes a large area
of Badlands (today largely included in Theodore Roosevelt National Memorial
Park). Characterized by a continental climate, with harsh winters and very hot
summers, it is crossed by the Missouri rivers (with the tributaries Little
Missouri and Cannonball in W, James in E) and Red River(which forms the eastern
border), on which massive water works necessary for the predominantly
agricultural economy of the state have been implemented. The most intensely
cultivated areas are the eastern ones, especially the Red River valley: the main
products, for some of which it ranks first among the States of the Union, are
wheat, barley and flax seeds, followed by beets sugar, rye, beans, potatoes,
oats, corn and fodder. To the west, meadows and pastures favor cattle, pig and
sheep breeding, which feeds a fair industrial activity. Mineral resources mainly
include oil (discovered in 1951), natural gas and lignite; in addition to the
food industries, mainly dairy, there are mechanical, electrotechnical and
building materials complexes. The urban population is constantly increasing. The
centers, located on the banks of large rivers, are mostly modest in size; apart
from the capital, are Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot. North Dakota became a
federated state in 1889.
