Oklahoma City is the capital and the most populous city of the State of Oklahoma. It is also the county seat of Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. Oklahoma City was founded during the Land Run of 1889, first of five land runs in what became Oklahoma.

Known throughout the nation as "OKC" after its airport's IATA code, Oklahoma City is the civic, entertainment, and commercial center of the state.

It is the largest city in the Great Plains region of the United States, and the 36th largest city in the nation. The city's estimated population as of 2005 was 531,324, with 1.2 million residents in its metropolitan area.

Oklahoma City was the site of the bombing on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995, the largest act of terrorism on American soil prior to the September 11th attacks and the most destructive act of domestic terrorism in American history.

The city is also characterized by its location in America's Tornado Alley, which is frequently visited in the springtime by violent thunderstorms producing damaging winds, very large hail and tornadoes.

One of the more prominent landmarks downtown is the Crystal Bridge at the Myriad Botanical Gardens, a large downtown urban park. Designed by I. M. Pei, the Crystal Bridge is a tropical conservatory in the area. The park has several amphitheaters where live theater and concerts can be seen and heard in the summer. There is also a lake in the middle of the park inhabited by large Japanese Koi replete with waterfalls and fountains.
