US State Capitals
The United States is a federation of 50 states. Each of the U.S. states and the five major territories of the United States has a capital city. Not every capital is the cultural and economic center or the most populous city of its state, but every capital is the seat of state government.
The government of a state consists of three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. In each state, the executive branch is headed by a governor who is directly elected by the people. In most states, other executive branch members are also directly elected, including the lieutenant governor, the attorney general, the secretary of state.
All state governments have a bicameral legislature (except Nebraska), made up of two chambers: a smaller upper house (Senate) and a larger lower house (the Assembly or the House of Representatives). These two chambers are responsible for state laws; they can make and change laws.
The Constitution and laws of each state establish the state courts. A court of last resort, often known as a Supreme Court, is usually the highest court.
