About Maryland

Maryland is one of the 50 states in the US, located in the Mid-Atlantic region in the north east of the United States. The state is bounded to the north by the Mason-Dixon line, that forms the border with Pennsylvania, the Potomac River forms most of its border with West Virginia and Virginia in the west, and in east it borders Delaware and the Atlantic Ocean. It surrounds a good portion of Washington D.C. in west. Chesapeake Bay with its many branches, the largest arm of the sea in the contiguous US, is reaching deep inland from the Atlantic Ocean and defines the center of Maryland with its serrated coastline.

The area of Maryland was part of the original territory of the United States. It was chartered as a colony in 1632. Maryland ratified the U.S. Constitution on 28 April 1788; it was the seventh of the original 13 states to join the Union.

With an area of 32,131 km² (12,406 sq mi), Maryland is ranked 42nd of the 50 US states, compared it is about the size of Belgium.
