    Georgia, state of US

    By creating a Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District, we will give local governments a framework for working together on an issue that affects our whole state - Roy Barnes



    History & Geography:
    Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan.
    The capital and largest city is Tbilisi. Georgia covers a territory of 69,700 square kilometers (26,911 sq mi), and its 2015 population is about 3.75 million. Georgia is a unitary, semi-presidential republic, with the government elected through a representative democracy.

    Natural Resources:
    In between the mountains and the coast, Georgia has thousands of acres of farmland. These abundant lands produce lots of different crops such as corn, cotton, peanuts, peaches, pecans, soybeans, and tobacco. However, much of the land in Georgia is used for pine lumber. In fact, Georgia has so much pine that it has more commercially forested land than any other state in the country. This state is famous for its peaches. Clay, sand, gravel, coal, copper, and marble are just a few of the 'underground' resources known to Georgia.

    Economy:
    The economy of Georgia is an emerging free market. Its gross domestic product fell sharply following the collapse of the Soviet Union but recovered in the mid-2000s, growing in double digits thanks to the economic and democratic reforms brought by the peaceful Rose Revolution. Georgia continued its economic progress since, "moving from a near-failed state in 2003 to a relatively well-functioning market economy in 2014". In 2007, the World Bank named Georgia the World's number one economic reformer, and has consistently ranked the country at the top of its ease of doing business index.

    Delicacies:
    Some of the mouth watering delicacies of Georgia are Khachapuri, Adjaruli, Churchkhela, Khinkali, Ajapsandali, Lobio, Mtsvadi, Tklapi.

    Climate:
    The climate of Georgia is typical of a humid subtropical climate with most of the state having mild winters and hot summers. The Atlantic Ocean on the east coast of Georgia and the hill country in the north impact the state's climate.

    Counties:
    Eight consolidated counties and cities have recently been formed in Georgia. However, the state of Georgia is divided into 159 counties. The number of counties in this state is more than any other state except for Texas.

    Transportation:
    In reality Georgia's transportation system is astonishing. The state government continues to spend tax payer dollars to maintain and expand the system that has truly built the state of Georgia into the Empire State of the South. Highways, railroads, ports, and air travel have been the basis of our great state and will continue to be what fuels our future. Most of the freight on land arrives by water. The deep- water port of Savannah is the third largest port in the U.S. Our airport assists the arrival of goods by being the 11th busiest cargo airport in the nation.

    Hotel & Places:
    Georgia has some remarkable places to visit which include: Atlanta, Savannah, Augusta, Blur Ridge, Helen, Tybee Island, Athens, St Simons and Jekyll Island. Here is a list of some of Georgia's luxurious and comfortable five star Hotels:
    • The St Regis Atlanta
    • The Cloister at sea land
    • Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta
