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.
Raleigh is the capital of the State of North Carolina and the county seat of Wake County. Raleigh is known as the city of Oaks for its many oak trees. The city of Raleigh estimates its population to be 353,604 as of July 1, 2006, making it one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Raleigh placed fourth on money Magazine's 2006 list of Best Big Cities.
Raleigh was selected as the site of a new state capital in 1788 and established in 1792 as both the new county seat and the new state capital. It was named in November 1792 for Sir Walter Raleigh, sponsor of the Colony of Roanoke. Despite being spared destruction in the civil war, Raleigh grew very little from its original 1792 size until the introduction of streetcar lines in the 1920's, the establishment of the Research Triangle Park in the 1950's, and a freeway known as the Beltline in the 1960's. IBM became a large force in Raleigh in the 1960s and greatly influenced growth.
In the city the population was spread out with 20.9 percent under the age of 18, 15.9 percent from 18 to 24, 36.6 percent from 25 to 44, 18.4 percent from 45 to 64, and 8.3 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 31 years. For every 100 females there were 98.0 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 96.6 males.
Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Raleigh enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
