New Hampshire State
New Hampshire, a U.S. state in New England, is defined by its quaint towns and large expanses of wilderness. In the north, White Mountain National Forest is known for winter sports areas and Mt. Washington, the region’s highest peak, with a cog railway to its summit. Also in the White Mountains are moose, black bears and part of the Appalachian Trail.
State Capital: Concord.
New Hampshire is one of the 13 original US states. Located in New England at the extreme northeastern area of the US, New Hampshire is bordered by the Canadian province of Quebec to the north, Massachusetts to the south, Maine to the east and Vermont to the west. The state capital of New Hampshire is Concord which is situated in the southern - central area of the state.
New Hampshire is commonly known as "The Granite State". From the late 19th century, New Hampshire was among the most industrial states in the US. However, New Hampshire is often featured as an pastoral and agricultural state.
"Supposedly" a "Yankee Kingdom" which constitute New Hampshire and Vermont and dominated by white Anglo-Saxon Protestants, New Hampshire has a large population of French-Canadian, Italian, German, Polish and other non-English descent. Widely acknowledged to be conversative and pro-business, New Hampshire's largest single source of state funds comes from business profit taxation. One of the earliest state to legalise same-sex civil unions, New Hampshire features very distint regional sub division. The regional differences are so extreme that many hassuggest New Hampshire to be divided into 3 parts with each equal part to be absorb into Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine.
Regional differences aside, New Hampshire has its own distinct identity. Core to this New Hampshire identity is the concept of governmental frugality. New Hampshire does no impose individual income tax or general sale tax. The idea of frugality at the state government level has a top-down influence to the smaller towns. Although town governments exist in all the New England states, they do not have much authority and responsibility for providing governmental services in New Hampshire. This makes New Hampshire a very "decentralised" state in term of governance.
This unique combination of decentralization, traditionalism, industrialisation and frugality together with New Hampshire's diversity in population ethnicity and geography makes New Hampshire an attractive state for many Americans.
