Mississippi Map

Mississippi is one of the 50 US states, situated in the American South, the 'Dixie' region of the United States.

Mississippi is bordered to the north by the state of Tennessee, to the east by Alabama, the Mississippi River in west forms the border with Arkansas and most of the border with Louisiana, the Pearl River forms the southern section of the border. In south the state has a 75 mi (120 km) long coastline at the Gulf of Mexico, the coastline features a number of large bays, including Bay Saint Louis, Biloxi, and Pascagoula.

With an area of 125,438 km² (48,432 sq mi) Mississippi is about half the size of the United Kingdom. Mississippi's landscape is flat, the state lies entirely in the lowlands of the US. Major rivers are, beside the Mississippi, the Big Black, the Pearl, and the Yazoo rivers.

Highest elevation in the state is Woodall Mountain, a hill of 246 m (800 ft) in Tishomingo County in the northeast part of the state. The Mississippi Delta in the eastern part of the state is not a delta but in reality a two hundred miles long alluvial plain created by regular flooding of the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers. Before colonization the Delta was covered in hardwood forest, but then by settlers developed as one of the richest cotton-growing areas in the nation.

Mississippi's nickname is "The Magnolia State", capital and largest city is Jackson. Major cities are Gulfport, Southaven, Hattiesburg, and Biloxi. The state has a population of just 2.9 million people. Its climate is subtropical humid, with long summers and short, mild winters.
