Nebraska is a state located on the Great Plains of the Midwestern United States. The state''s capital is Lincoln and its largest city is Omaha. Nebraska probably gets its name from the archaic Otoe words Ã‘Ã BrÃ¡sge, pronounced (contemporary Otoe Ã‘Ã BrÃ¡hge), or the Omaha NÃ BthÃ¡ska, pronounced, meaning flat water," after the Platte River that flows through the state. American Indian tribes in Nebraska have included the Omahas, Missouria, Poncas, Pawnees, Otoes, and various branches of the Sioux. Once considered part of the Great American Desert (actually highly biodiverse prairie land), it is now a leading farming and ranching state. Nebraska is the only U.S. state with a unicameral legislature. "
