The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Grand Forks is a city in Grand Forks County, North Dakota in the United States. It is the county seat of Grand Forks County and the third largest city in North Dakota. The population was 49,321 at the 2000 census. Grand Forks was founded in 1870 and incorporated in 1881.
Grand Forks is home to the University of North Dakota UND and the Grand Forks air force base located 13 miles west of town. These two entities are among the largest employers in the state. Historically dependent on local agriculture, the city's economy has moved towards one centered on higher education, health care, the retail and service sector, and some scientific research. The city is somewhat of a hybrid of an agricultural town and a college town.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 49.9 square kilometers, all land. Since it is in one of the flattest parts of the world, the city has very few differences in elevation. There are no lakes in or near Grand Forks. The meandering Red River and the English Coulee flow through the community and provide some break in the terrain. The Red River valley is the result of an ancient glacier carving its way south during the most recent ice age. Once the glacier receded, it formed a glacial lake called Lake Agassiz. The ancient beaches can still be seen as rolling hills west of town.

In the city the population was spread out with 21.4 percent under the age of 18, 22.9 percent from 18 to 24, 27.7 percent from 25 to 44, 18.3 percent from 45 to 64, and 9.8 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 28 years. For every 100 females there were 102.0 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 100.2 males. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. It enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
