North Carolina Overview
North Carolina, a state of the
Southeastern United States; 136,000 km2, 9.7
million residents (2011), of which 22% are
black. Capital: Raleigh (404,000 residents). Joined the
Constitution in 1789 as the 12th State. Nickname: The
Tar Heel State.

The state's economic and population center of gravity is found in
the central city belt, which extends along the main road from
Raleigh and Durham in the east to Greensboro and Winston-Salem in
the west. Outside the city belt lies, among other
things. Asheville and Charlotte (largest city with 594,000
inhabitants) and the port city of Wilmington in the SE. In addition,
the state has a large rural population that has had a limited share
of economic growth in recent decades. Widespread poverty is found
among smallholder farmers and Native American minorities in the
western mountain areas. North Carolina is one of the United States'
largest producers of tobacco and peanuts, which, together with soy,
pork and poultry, form the basis of a significant food and beverage
industry; known is the cigarette giant Reynolds Tobacco Co. in
Winston-Salem. Other raw materials industries are the timber and
furniture industry (forests cover about 60% of the area) as well as
the textile and clothing industry. Unlike these low-wage industries,
which, like the rest of the business community, generally employ
unorganized labor, a large number of high-tech research industries
(electronics, biomedicine, etc.) exist. The largest is the
concentration in The Research Triangle Park, which since
its inception in 1959 has been based on close collaboration between
private companies and the universities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel
The terrain consists of a central, approx. 300 km wide and
200-500 m high hillside bounded on the east by a wide coastal plain
and on the west by the southern Appalachians (Mt. Mitchell, 2037
m). The climate is rainy and subtropical except for the high
mountain areas. The sights include the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park and the protected land tangles at Cape
Hatteras and Cape Lookout in the Atlantic.
The first English colony in North America was established in 1585
on Roanoke Island; however, like others, it was abandoned later and
it was not until the 1650s that permanent colonies were
established. After North Carolina withdrew from Britain in 1776, the
western territories that became Tennessee were abandoned. North
Carolina stood on the side of the South during the American Civil
War 1861-65; after the war and the abolition of slavery, the large
tobacco plantations were transformed into fortifications. Most of
the original residents, the Cherokee, were already
relocated to Oklahoma in the 1830s.
