Federated state of the central western USA, 253,326 km², 515,004
residents (2006 estimate), 2 inhabitants / km²,
capital: Cheyenne. Borders: Montana (N), South
Dakota and Nebraska (E), Colorado (S), Utah (SW), Idaho (W). "See
geographical map vol. 22, page 510" "For the geographical map see the lemma of
the 20th volume."
It appears as a succession of high lands crossed in the NW-SE direction by
the Rocky Mountains, divided into various minor chains, including the Teton
Range and the Absaroka Range, which delimit the Yellowstone National Park
region; the Bighorn Mountains, which enclose the valley of the Bighorn River to
the E, the Laramie Mountains and the Medicine Bow Mountains. The northeastern
sector of Wyoming forms part of the Great Plains, a vast and elevated region
that slopes down from the Rocky Mountains to the Missouri Valley; the
southwestern part of the Colorado plateau, crossed by the Green River. The State
is crossed from NW to SE by the Continental Divide, a line between the waters
that pay to the Pacific (Green and Snake rivers) and those that descend to the
Atlantic (Bighorn, Yellowstone, Shoshoni, North Platte, Laramie). Main economic
resources are breeding (cattle, sheep), agriculture, practiced where irrigation
and aridoculture are possible (dry farming), and above all the
exploitation of the subsoil, rich in oil, natural gas, iron, coal,
uranium; industries are developed in the petrochemical, food, mechanical, wood
and building materials sectors. Important cities, besides the capital,
are Casper, Laramie, Rock Springs and Sheridan. § The state of Wyoming resulted
from the aggregation of territories coming partly from the purchase
of Louisiana from France (1803), partly from the annexation of Texas (1845),
partly from the partition of Oregon between Great Britain and the USA (1846) and
finally, it starts from the sale made by Mexico in 1848. It was organized as a
territory in 1868, above all to facilitate the construction of the railway Union
Pacific. Admitted as a state in the Union in 1890, a vigorous movement in
favor of women's suffrage had already developed there, granted in 1869, for the
first time in the USA. Except as of the time of the New Deal, Wyoming has
traditionally always expressed Republican majorities.
