Minnesota is located in the north central United States. Near the geographic center of North America, it is bordered on the north by the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Ontario, on the west by North Dakota and South Dakota, on the south by Iowa, and on the east by Wisconsin and Lake Superior. Minnesota entered the Union on May 11, 1858, as the 32nd state.

The state’s name comes from a Sioux word meaning "cloudy water" that was applied to the Minnesota River. The state’s most famous nickname, Land of 10,000 Lakes, is an understatement, for Minnesota has more than 15,000 lakes, three-fourths of which are 10 acres or more in size year round. Minnesota is also known as the Gopher State. There are varying interpretations about the source of the nickname. Some say it comes from the gophers commonly found in the southern part of the state; others say it is from a political cartoon in the 19th century that depicted dishonest railroad union organizers as gophers. Minnesota is also known as the North Star State, a translation of the French inscription on the state seal, L’Etoile du Nord.

Rich in minerals, farmland, and waterways, Minnesota has also become an important industrial state, specializing in machinery and electrical goods, medical products, food products, and fabricated metals. Its principal cities are the famous Twin Cities, Saint Paul (the state capital) and Minneapolis (the state’s largest city).

The area of Minnesota is 86,943 square miles, of which 4,780 square miles is inland water and 2,546 square miles is a portion of Lake Superior under the state’s jurisdiction. Minnesota thus ranks 12th in area among the 50 states. From north to south the state measures 406 miles, and from east to west it measures 358 miles at its maximum extent and about 180 miles at its narrowest point. The mean elevation is about 1,200 feet.

Minnesota’s climate is classified as humid continental because normally there is a sufficient amount of precipitation to provide at least some surplus for runoff, and because Minnesota’s temperature conditions are largely controlled by its location in the interior of the large landmass of North America. The result is extreme seasonal temperature variations. The average January temperature is about 0° in the northwest and about 14° in the south, but the thermometer periodically drops to lows in the -20°s. The average temperature in July is about 74° in the south and as low as 60° in the far northeast. Heat waves with temperatures in the lower 100°s, however, are common.

Precipitation is generally adequate but varies from about 30 inches annually in the southeast to less than 20 inches in the northwest. Occasionally damaging droughts occur in the western part of the state. Snow cover is common over the state for long periods. Average annual snowfall varies from about 30 inches in the west to about 60 inches in the northeast. The growing season varies from about 150 days in the south to about 100 days in the north.
