Minnesota became the 32nd state of the Union on May 11, 1858. A slight expansion of the northern boundary makes Minnesota the northernmost of the 48 contiguous states of the United States. Minnesota is one of the north-central states. It is bordered to the north by the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Ontario, to the east by Lake Superior and the state of Wisconsin, to the south by the states of Iowa, and to the west by South Dakota and North Dakota. Minnesota’s thousand rivers flow north through the Red and Rainy Rivers into the Hudson Bay, east through the Great Lakes into the Atlantic Ocean, and south through the Mississippi River into the Gulf of Mexico.

In fact, Minnesota takes its name from the Dakota (Sioux) word for the state’s main tributary of the Mississippi, the Minnesota River, which means “sky-colored water.” Minnesota is made up of vast forests, fertile grasslands, and countless lakes, which is the ultimate basis for one of the state’s nicknames, “The Land of 10,000 Lakes.” In fact, there are about 12,000 lakes in Minnesota, all of which are larger than 10 acres (4 hectares). Nearly 5,000 square miles (13,000 square kilometers) of inland freshwater is Minnesota’s dominant feature.

The climate is continental, with cold winters and hot summers. Approximately one in four Minnesotans has at least some Scandinavian ancestry, but Germans make up the state’s single largest ethnic group.

By the end of the 20th century, utilities had become the dominant activity in Minnesota’s economy, surpassing agriculture, mining, and manufacturing, which had been the state’s primary sources of income since settlement.

Saint Paul is the state capital, and the Twin Cities region (Minneapolis-Saint Paul) is Minnesota’s primary administrative, economic, and cultural center.
