Nebraska is the 37th most populous state in the United States and the 16th largest in terms of land size.

About 295,691 residents in the state are age 65 and older, and about 66.1% of people in the state are homeowners.
Nebraska was home to a variety of native tribes when Europeans began to explore the land in the 1500s and 1600s. Even after the land changed hands from the French to the U.S. as part of the Louisiana Purchase, it was still used as Indian Territory where the U.S. government relocated many of the tribes. The state did not see major white settlement until the Oregon Trail and Gold Rush brought people westward in the 1850s. Nebraska became the 37th state in 1867.
Omaha is the largest city in the state with 466,893 residents. Before its establishment as a city, it was a fur trading post during the War of 1812. The city is home to multiple Fortune 500 companies and is the birthplace to famous natives like actors Marlon Brando and Fred Astaire, as well as investor Warren Buffett. It is also the birthplace of cake mix and tv dinners. Further west in Hastings, Kool-Aid was invented in 1927.
After Omaha, the largest cities in the state are its capital Lincoln and Bellevue. With a diversified economy, a few of Nebraska’s main industries are agriculture, finance and insurance, and transportation. Nebraska was ranked 4 on Forbes list of ‘Best Places to Do Business’, and it has multiple companies on the Fortune 500 list, including Berkshire Hathaway, Union Pacific, and Mutual of Omaha.
With a continental climate classification, Nebraska has four distinct seasons with large variances in temperature. The state has hot summers with an average high in July of 88 degrees Fahrenheit and very cold winters with an average low in January of 12 degrees Fahrenheit.
