Arkansas is located on the west bank of the Mississippi River. The northern part of the area is filled with the wooded Ozark Plateau, and the low-rise Ouachita Mountains rise in the southwest.

The developed cultures of the original inhabitants existed in this area as early as 500. The first European settlers were the French in the 17th century. In 1803, they sold this territory as part of Louisiana to the United States. In the lowlands around the lower Mississippi River, large cotton plantations were established, cultivated by black slaves imported from Africa. From 1820 to 1836, when Arkansas became the new state of the Union, the territory of Arkansas lay south of the Missouri Compromise Line, the boundary that separated slave and free states.

In 1861, Arkansas joined the Confederacy. The state, weakened by the civil war, has long been dependent on cotton production and has continued to pursue a policy of racial segregation. Today, Arkansas, despite major changes, is still the most backward state in the Union. Cotton cultivation was supplemented by other crops (rice, soybeans, fruits). Bauxite and oil extraction is important. The industry is dominated by chemical production, wood processing and electronics. The picturesque highlands have become popular recreational areas.
