The state of North Dakota is located in the northern United States and is assigned to the Great Plains region. In the north, North Dakota is bordered by Canada, in the east by Minnesota, in the south by South Dakota and in the west by Montana. The area was named after the Dakota tribe of the Sioux Indians who had their settlements here. In 1889, North Dakota became the 39th state to join the Union. The state is considered the geographic center of North America.

The state of North Dakota covers an area of ​​183,112 km² and has approximately 673,000 inhabitants. This makes the state one of the most sparsely populated in the United States. The capital of North Dakota is Bismarck with approximately 60,000 residents. Economically, agriculture and animal husbandry play an important role and this manifests itself in the huge farms and ranches that are spread across the country. But for some time now, oil has been extracted from the oil shale stored here in the northwest of the state near the city of Williston using “frackings”. The mining has brought a lot of money to the region, but has also led to a significant increase in crime, especially drug trafficking.

In addition, the state has had the most abortion legislation since March 26, 2013, so an abortion may no longer be carried out if the child’s heartbeat can be detected – this is usually from the 6th week of pregnancy.
North Dakota is the least visited state in the United States by tourists.
