Arkansas is the most populous of the 50 U.S. states. On June 15, 1836, it joined the Union as the 25th state. Its capital, Little Rock, is also its largest city.
The second-largest city, Fort Smith, is located on the western border and has a population of over 100,000. Arkansas has a total area of 53,179 square kilometers. That makes it the 31st largest state by area among all 50 states. With an estimated population of 2,915,918 as of July 2014, Arkansas is also the 29th most populous state in the United States, with a population density of 83.5 people per square kilometer.
As a southern state, Arkansas is often referred to as “Arkansas,” but they rarely call themselves that. Neighboring states still use the name “Arkansas”.
The motto of this American state is simple, like the one on its flag: Regnat Populus (Latin), which means “Power to the People.” This proposal reflects the fact that Arkansas is a Democratic state ruled by its people. The capital city of Little Rock also has the better-known nickname “Natural State”, coined because it lies along the southern border of the Ozark Mountains and is considered worthy of being called a natural wonder.
Arkansas has several universities, including the University of Arkansas, which is the state’s flagship university. Other major institutions where students can receive a quality education include Hendrix College, Lyon College, and South Arkansas Community College.
Arkansas has a humid subtropical climate, although there are sharp differences between its northern and southern parts. The extreme south is close to the Gulf of Mexico, while the northern parts are even more influenced by humid continental air masses. Snow in Arkansas only falls during the winter months. In fact, this state has the second-highest number of days in a year with snowfall.
