The state of Arkansas is located in the southern United States and is therefore one of the southern states. Arkansas borders Missouri in the north, Tennessee and Mississippi in the east, Louisiana in the south, Texas in the southwest and Oklahoma in the west.

The name of the state is probably derived from the word for “people living at the river end” and probably refers to the Quapaw Indians. Arkansas became the 25th state in the United States in 1836. Cotton cultivation and the woodworking industry used to dominate. Arkansas has the only natural diamond deposits in the United States. The state covers an area of ​​137,732 km² – with around 3 million inhabitants. The capital is Little Rock.
Arkansas is a country with numerous mountains and valleys, dense forests and fertile plains.

The Ozark and Ouachita mountain ranges in the north and west are referred to as “Highlands”, the southern and eastern parts of the country as “Lowlands”. Arkansas is famous among tourists for its mineral springs and hot springs.
The most famous American country music singer and songwriter Johnny Cash (1932-2003) was born on February 26, 1932 in Kingsland, here in Arkansas.

Arkansas is probably one of the best known and most radical representatives of the so-called “Bible Belt.” This is where the “Westboro Baptist Church” sect is based, which celebrates the death of homosexuals, considers AIDS to be a punishment from God, and recently even celebrates the death of fallen soldiers at funerals and prays for more dead soldiers. Their rights to freedom of expression were expressly approved by the US Supreme Court in February 2011 with a majority of 8: 1. It is also worth mentioning that in this state “godless” are not allowed to hold public office.
