Nebraska. State Map.
Nebraska is one of America’s prairie states. The land surface gradually descends from west to southeast down the Missouri River, whose tributary Platte follows the general slope of the landscape. The western part of Nebraska, which reaches up to about 1,500 m above sea level, has a plateau-like surface with occasional protruding residual rocks.

Most of the state, especially in the east, consists of rolling countryside with loose and sand deposits. Especially in northwestern Nebraska, the landscape is heavily eroded into difficult-to-reach ravine landscapes, so-called badlands.
The climate is markedly continental. The average temperature in January varies between −2 °C and −8 ° C, in July between 22 and 26 ° C. The average rainfall is about 800 mm per year in eastern Nebraska and 400 mm in the far west. However, temperature and rainfall vary widely from year to year.
Nebraska’s colonization, among other things. through Swedish immigrants, gained momentum in the 1860s after the arrival of the Union Pacific railway, and already before 1890 the population exceeded 1 million. Since then, the increase in population has been low; during the 00’s just under 1 per cent per year.
About 89 percent are white, and half of the population lives in and around the major cities of Omaha (443,900 residents, 2016) and Lincoln (277,300 residents) in eastern Nebraska. The state of the rest is sparsely populated, and the emigration from the agricultural areas is extensive. See towns in Nebraska.
The settlement in the countryside is strongly characterized by the original strict square pattern with 259 ha large squares (1.6 km × 1.6 km). This has its origins in colonial era land surveying (compare Homestead Act).
Agriculture and agricultural-based industries are Nebraska’s main industries. The most important crops are maize, sorghum, wheat, soybeans and sugar beets.

Livestock and pig breeding play a big role. Of Nebraska’s area, 45 percent is cultivated land and slightly more is grazing areas (livestock ranches). 1/6 of the area is irrigated.
The meat industry is of great importance, among other things in Omaha, but also other food industries (dairy products, canned vegetables and sugar) are important. Furthermore, there are mechanical and electrical engineering industries.
Tourism and gastronomy
Nebraska is one of the states in the United States where tourism is least extensive. The city of Omaha and the capital Lincoln have the most visitors. Nebraska lacks magnificent scenery but offers a variety of smaller recreational areas. Only in the northwestern part does the landscape picture differ by its ravine-like appearance (badlands).
Of interest is the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument on the upper course of the Niobrara River. Another national monument is Scott Bluff, which is a 200 m high cliff on the North Platte River. The great expatriate route west, the Oregon Trail, followed the river, and the cliff was a long-awaited landmark for travelers of the time. The opportunities to study the colonization era are good in Nebraska, which has a number of memorials and museums with different aspects of the settler era.

Of a more modern kind is the Strategic Air Command Museum south of Omaha.
The pioneers’ hard work on the Nebraska prairie created a heavy, saturating and simple food, and large steaks, sausages, ribs, potatoes, vegetables, beans and pork still characterize the food. Homemade foods such as baked potatoes with sour cream dressing , oven-fried chicken (breaded chicken pieces crisp-roasted in the oven), navy beans with ham hocks are eaten with lots of bread and pie as dessert.
Nebraska moved from France to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The first European settlements were founded in the 1820s. Nebraska became territories in 1854 through the Kansas-Nebraska Act, gained its present boundaries in 1861 and became the state in 1867. Nebraska developed rapidly after the Civil War, when many European immigrants moved there and began to cultivate the large prairie areas.
Politically, Nebraska has been dominated by Republicans, at times even by agrarian protest movements, but in recent years Democrats have asserted themselves in state elections.
