    If you were to come to Minnesota, I could have you locked up like that. That's power - Jesse Ventura



    History & Geography:
    Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory. This state was formed on the 11th of May 1858 with its state capital Saint Paul. The US state of Minnesota which is also known as the North Star state occupies 225,181 km2
    land area with 5.457 million residing in it.
    Minnesota is the 12th largest in area and the 21st most populous of the U.S. states; nearly 60 percent of its residents live in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan area (known as the "Twin Cities"). The state consists of western prairies now given over to intensive agriculture; deciduous forests in the southeast, now partially cleared, farmed and settled; and the less populated North Woods, used for mining, forestry, and recreation.

    Natural Resources:
    Minnesota is a leading agricultural state because it is supported by Fertile soil important minerals (iron ore, manganese, granite, limestone, sandstone), forests of jack, Norway, aspen, balsam, spruce and white birch and groves of ash, black walnut, elm, maple and oak are among Minnesota's important natural.

    The economy of Minnesota produced US$312 billion of gross domestic product in 2014. Minnesota headquartered 31 publicly traded companies in the top 1,000 U.S. companies by revenue in 2011. This includes such large companies as Target, and UnitedHealth Group.

    Delicacies:
    The Minnesota state fair is basically held for the sole purpose of inventing zany foods that you can put on a stick. Forget corn dogs, we are talking Snickers on a stick, spaghetti on a stick, beer on a stick, and my favorite, Northwood’s salad on-a-stick (mozzarella cheese and cherry tomatoes over chilled wild rice).

    Climate:
    Minnesota has a continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters. Minnesota's location in the Upper Midwest allows it to experience some of the widest variety of weather in the United States, with each of the four seasons having its own distinct characteristics.

    There are 87 counties in the U.S. state of Minnesota. There are also several historical counties. On October 27, 1849, nine counties were established: Benton, Dahkotah, Itasca, Ramsey, Mahkahta, Pembina, Wabasha, Washington, and Wahnata. Six of these names still exist
