The abbreviation for the state Kansas is KS.
Kansas is a landlocked U.S. state of the Midwest region, bordered by Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and Colorado. Although the area was populated by Native American tribes over thousands of years, the first permanent European settlers arrived in the area of Bonner Springs in 1812, leading to a large population boom throughout the nineteenth century. The state is predominantly low-lying, as it is made up mostly of the U.S.’ great central plains. This made the area highly productive for agricultural settlers, of which 90% of the state’s land is used for to this day. The state capital of Kansas is Topeka, meaning “a good place to dig potatoes” in the Kansa-Osage Native American language. The largest city of Wichita is known as a centre of the aerospace industry.
