Colorado is one of the most versatile U.S. states. Its nickname "Centennial State" indicates that Colorado became its own state in 1876 and was accepted into the Union on the centenary of the United States.

The state is characterized in the central and western part by the Rocky Mountains, which reach their highest peaks here. The highest point in Colorado is Mount Elbert (4,401 m), the highest mountain in the Rockies. Large parts are covered with eternal ice and snow and there are also numerous winter sports resorts such as the fashionable Aspen and the Alpine-style Vail.

In the east, on the other hand, the state is shaped by the wide plains of the USA. However, these levels are still relatively high and are therefore referred to here as high plains. Overall, Colorado has an average altitude of 2,073 m, the highest elevation in any state.

Numerous neighboring countries limit the current borders of the state. Colorado borders on the U.S. states of Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico and Oklahoma as well as on the Four Corners in Arizona.

Major rivers are the Colorado, which gave the state its name, as well as the Rio Grande and Arkansas. Colorado is also known for its numerous lakes (over 2,000!) Such as Grand Lake (the largest natural lake in the state), Lake Granby, Shadow Mountain Lake (all in the Arapaho Recreation Area ) and the Blue Masor Reservoir.

Colorado geography and residents

This is very close to the Rocky Mountain National Park, where you can also admire many water areas, but also a typical wildlife. This park is also famous and popular for its good hiking trails and beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains.

Colorado is politically one of the so-called Swing States, because it has areas with republican majorities (especially Colorado Springs, which is home to several churches and religious institutions) as well as with democratic majorities (including the capital Denver, which is the economic and cultural center of the State is here). For example, Colorado's stance in presidential election campaigns is always closely monitored.

As in many U.S. states, Americans of German descent form the strongest group by origin. However, especially in southern Colorado, many people are of Mexican and Latin American origin. Although English is the official language here, the group of Spanish-speaking residents is quite large.

The strongest religious communities are Catholics, Protestants (both moderate and conservative churches) and Mormons. The state motto, which is also religious, is “Nil sine numine”, which translates as “nothing without God's will”. The largest cities are Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Fort Collins and Lakewood. Colorado is one of the economically thriving states of the United States.

The most important economic sectors include mining (copper, uranium, petroleum, coal, gold and precious stones; world leader in molybdenum mining), agriculture (corn, potatoes, wheat, cattle, sheep and wine growing), high-tech industry, research and education (with numerous universities such as Colorado State University, University of Colorado and the University of Denver) and services such as income from tourism.

The role as one of the most important educational policy centers in the USA is also expressed in the Community series (with Chevy Chase, Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs, among others). The fictional community college is also located in Colorado.
