Tulsa is the second-largest city in the state of Oklahoma. It is the county seat of Tulsa County.

As of 2006, the estimate for the city population was 387,807. Tulsa's Metropolitan Statistical Area was estimated to have a 2005 population of 887,715 and Tulsa's Combined Statistical Area, which includes the Bartlesville Micropolitan Area, was estimated to have a 2005 population of 936,864. Tulsa is the 45th largest city in the United States and the 93rd largest city in North America.

The city is located in Northeast Oklahoma, a part of the state often referred to as "Green Country." It is considered the cultural and arts center of Oklahoma, boasting two world-renowned art museums, full-time professional opera and ballet companies, and a notable concentration of art deco architecture. [2] In 2005, Tulsa was selected as one of "America's Most Livable Large Cities."

For most of the 20th century, oil refinery and oil corporations dominated Tulsa's economy. Like the rest of Oklahoma, an oil bust in the 1980s severely compromised that economic foundation. Since then, city and county officials have been leading massive undertakings to diversify Tulsa's economy.

Today, Tulsa is still an important energy and oil center, but other industries have taken the spotlight, such as aerospace, banking, telecommunications, high tech, and insurance.

In 2006, Forbes magazine rated Tulsa as second in the nation in job income growth, and one of the best 50 cities to do business in the country.

2006 also found Tulsa in the midst of a significant economic development and investment surge.

Tulsa was featured in the movies, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, and Twister.
