Missouri FlagMissouri is a landlocked state in the Midwestern United States on the fringes of the Bible Belt. The Show Me State (nickname) borders a total of eight different US states, on the north by Iowa; on the east, across the Mississippi River, by Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee; on the south by Arkansas; and on the west by Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska (the latter across the Missouri River in north west).

The United States acquired the area of Missouri from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Missouri Territory was organized on June 4, 1812, from Louisiana Territory, and included all of the present-day states of Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma and parts of Colorado, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming.
Missouri was admitted to the Union on 2nd March 1821, as the 24th state from a small part of Missouri Territory.

Its landscape offers an upland plain prairie region in north, the Missouri portion of the mountainous Ozark Plateau in south west, and the Mississippi Alluvial Plain in the Missouri Bootheel region in the south eastern corner of the state.

Taum Saul Mountain is Missouri's highest peak, a flat ridge at 540 m (1,772 ft), situated in a large parks-and-wilderness area, the Taum Saul Mountain State Park in the St. Francois Mountains in the Ozarks.
