Nevada is one of fifty states that, together with Washington D. C., form the United States of America. Its capital is Carson City and its biggest city is Las Vegas, famous for its casinos and the legalization of gambling. It is located in the western region of the country, the Rocky Mountains division. It is bordered on the northwest by Oregon, on the northeast by Idaho, on the east by Utah, on the southeast by Arizona, and on the west and southwest by California.

With 286,351 km² it is the seventh largest state - behind Alaska, Texas, California, Montana, New Mexico and Arizona - and with 9.43 inhabitants / km² it is the ninth least densely populated, ahead of Nebraska, Idaho, New Mexico, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Alaska, the least densely populated.

Nevada has the highest population growth rates -66.3% between 1990 and 2000-throughout the United States, largely due to the large immigration of Mexicans. However, most of Nevada is almost depopulated. The majority of the state's population is concentrated in the urban centers of Las Vegas, Carson City and Reno. The first European explorers to explore the area of ​​Nevada were the Spaniards, who gave it the name of Nevada, because of the snow that covered the mountains in winter.

It was part of the Viceroyalty of New Spain until 1821, date of the independence of Mexico, becoming part of Mexico. In 1848, with the end of the War between Mexico and the United States, it became part of the United States. During the decade of 1870 great deposits of silver were found in Nevada, which earned him the nickname of The Silver State. Currently, mining still has some importance in its economy, although much less than in the past. In addition to silver, it is a large producer of gold, oil and sand. However, at present the main source of income is tourism.
