USA - United States - Nevada
Nevada is a state located in the
western United States, best known for its legalization of gambling and
prostitution (in some counties). It also has some of the country's strictest
drug laws. The capital is Carson City.
Nevada's official nickname is "The Silver State". Other nicknames include "The
Sagebrush State" and "The Battle-Born State", and the state's motto is "All for
Our Country," and the state song is "Home Means Nevada" by Bertha Rafetto. The
phrase "Battle Born" is on the state flag.
Although the name is derived from the Spanish word nevada which is the feminine
form of "covered in snow", the correct pronunciation of the state's name is not
IPA. In 2005, the state issued a specialty license plate via the Nevada
Commission on Tourism that lists the name of the state as Nevăda to help with
the pronunciation problem. more ....
