Connecticut

Connecticut is one of fifty states that, together with Washington D. C., form the United States of America. Its capital is Hartford and its most populous city, Bridgeport. It is located in the Northeast region of the country, New England division, bounded on the north by Massachusetts, on the east by Rhode Island, on the south by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by the state of New York. With 14,357 km² it is the third least extensive state - ahead of Delaware and Rhode Island, the least extensive - and with 248.94 inhabitants / km², the third most densely populated, behind New Jersey and Rhode Island. He was admitted to the Union on January 9,1788, as state number 5.

His main source of income is the provision of financial and real estate services. The state capital, Hartford, is known nationally as Insurance City, because of the large number of insurance companies that are located in the city. It was one of the Thirteen Colonies originally established by the United Kingdom. The Connecticut Colony was the first subdivision located in what is now the United States of America to have a written Constitution, called Fundamental Orders, or First Orders, adopted on January 14,1639. This colonial Constitution would serve as the basis for the formation of the American Constitution. The officers of Connecticut played an essential role in the approval of the "Great Compromise" made in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which gave the United States Congress its current form.

Because of these events, the state is nicknamed The Constitution State, and the Great Compromise of 1787 became known nationally as the Connecticut Commitment. On January 9,1788, it became the fifth state in the United States. The origin of the name "Connecticut" comes from the Indian word Quinnehtujqut, which means "Place of the Long River". The first Europeans to settle permanently in the region were English Puritans, who came from Massachusetts, in 1633. The Nutmeg State is another popular nickname and the inhabitants of this state are known nationally as a "nutmegger".
