Also known as “The Cornhusker State,” Nebraska is the 37th state in the United States. Once explored by the Lewis and Clark expedition and benefited by the California Gold Rush during the 19th century, Nebraska is one of the more progressive states today. It is largely an agricultural state, and is a major producer of beef, pork, corn sorghum and soybeans. It also has one of the lowest unemployment rates. Nebraska’s capital is Lincoln and its largest city is Omaha.
