Wyoming - LLC

The state of Wyoming is situated in the western United States, between Montana and Colorado, and covers an area of 253 347 km2, almost 50% of which is owned by the federal government in national parks (including Yellowstone National Park), forests and preserves. The Rocky Mountains account for a third of the land, and in the east a similar sized area forms part of the Great Plains, from which the state takes its name - Wyoming, an Indian word, means "at the big plains". Summers in Wyoming are moderate, but winters are long and cold. The half a million inhabitants share their state with a vast array of wildlife, including moose, grizzly bears and mountain lions. The economy is based primarily on mining (high quality coal and natural gas), a rapidly expanding tourism industry and livestock. The population of only 515 000 make Wyoming the least densely populated of the 50 states. The capital and largest city is Cheyenne, and apart from a few other medium-sized cities, Wyoming contains almost 200 small towns scattered throughout the wide-open spaces.


The history of Wyoming is truly that of "the Wild West". Native Americans have been traced back 11 000 years, but it was not until the early 19th century that white men actually explored the area. In the 1820s fur traders thrived, and the settlement at Fort Laramie became an important meeting place. During the mid 19th century several hundred thousand travellers passed through the area, totally disrupting the lifestyle of the Native Americans. Tensions rose and a compensation payment of $50 000 was agreed. Conflict was common between the government and the Sioux people, and many natives refused to accept the reservation offered in South Dakota. Chiefs Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse led the opposition, which culminated in the Battle of Little Bighorn in neighbouring Montana. The railroads improved communi-cations, and many cattle ranchers were attracted to the area. In 1890 Wyoming became the 44th state of the Union, and the first giving equal rights to women.


The constitution of Wyoming, dating back to 1890, states that the chief executive is to be a governor, elected to serve a four-year term. The Senate is a body of 30 members, elected to serve a four-year term, and the 60 elected members of the House of Representatives serve two years. Wyoming is represented in the U.S. House of Representatives by one member and in the U.S. Senate by two members.
