Utah, a mountain state of the western
United States; 219,902 km2, 2.8 million (2010),
of which 86% are white. Nickname: The Beehive
State. Utah's history is linked to the Mormons, who,
under the leadership of Brigham Young, colonized the area
near the capital of Salt Lake City in 1847. Following the
abandonment of the lands of Mexico in 1848, Utah became a
Union Territory and became the United States' 45th state in
1896. Still today most residents are members of the Mormon
Church, whose influence characterizes both business and
culture, politics and education.

Although birth rates and population growth have long been among
the highest in the country, most of Utah is sparsely
populated. Almost 4/5 of the residents are
concentrated in urban areas Salt Lake City- Ogden and Provo -Orem,
both of which border the Great Basin along highway I-15
between Idaho and Arizona. The rest are distributed to small towns,
for example Elsinore with descendants of Danish immigrants.
While agriculture and mining were formerly the leading
industries, the economy has become more broad-spectrum after World
War II. Of great importance are the aerospace, pharmaceutical and
food industries, as well as a rapidly growing computer
industry. Agriculture occupies almost half of the acreage, most of
it in the form of grazing areas (cattle, sheep) and irrigation farms
with fodder crops, cereals and vegetables. The most important mining
products are oil, gas and coal, as well as uranium, copper and
alloys (beryllium, molybdenum), which are mainly mined in Bingham
Apart from the high plateau Great Basin to the west, with the
lakes Utah Lake and Great Salt Lake, the landscape is part of
the Rocky Mountains. This applies, for example, to the Wasatch Range
mountain range, which near Ogden and Salt Lake City contains some of
the country's most sought after ski resorts, and the Uinta Mountains
towards the NE with the highest point, Kings Peak (4126
m); furthermore, the Colorado Plateau, whose erosional landscapes
can be experienced in Glen Canyon and Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol
Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. The parks belong to the
federal state, which incl. military test areas, forests and Native
American reserves (navajo, ute) manage 62% of the
area. The climate is affected by the altitude differences, but is
generally dry and sunny with hot summers and cold winters. Main
river is Colorado River with dam Lake Powell on the Arizona border.
