First, let's start off by explaining the significance of this state. Arizona doesn't have the same rate of entertainment born from there like the neighboring state of California. In other words, Arizona is not a place with nothing at all. Its capital, Phoenix, is already among the largest cities in the United States, and it's the biggest capital overall.[[note]]For folks not from America, it's sort of an American tradition for the state capital to be a dinky small-to-mid-sized city that nobody's ever heard of. Of 50 states, only 14 have capitals that are also the largest city--and of those, there are only six (Phoenix, Arizona; UsefulNotes/{{Boston}}, Massachusetts; UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}, Georgia; UsefulNotes/{{Denver}}, Colorado; Salt Lake City, UsefulNotes/{{Utah}}; and Honolulu, UsefulNotes/{{Hawaii}}) that anyone out-of-state has really heard of.[[/note]] Throughout the times from first settlement in the 19th century to statehood in 1912, the mining industry fuels commercial growth throughout the state, in which the predominant mineral is copper, earning the state nickname "the Copper state". There's also things to do out in the wilderness besides seeing the cacti if you're a foreigner, like offroading (at least in the desert), boating in the main rivers, and such.
