Where in the U.S. is Oklahoma located?
Oklahoma is a state in the central south of the United States of America, north of Texas. The word Oklahoma comes from the Choctaw language: okla ‘the man’ and humma ‘red’, the composition means as much as “The land of the red man”. The nickname of Oklahoma is The Sooner State. The background of this epithet were the pioneers who had settled the land purchased by the Indians by the US government before (sooner) the legal initial settlement period. The capital of Oklahoma is Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma is considered a traditionally conservative state, in which, similar to Texas, the Republicans successfully took up the legacy of Democratic dominance in the southern states after the Civil War by occupying issues of the political right from the sixties of the last century. After Texas and Virginia, Oklahoma is the state of the United States of America that has carried out the most death sentences.
