Establishing a company in Delaware
Delaware is one of the smallest states in the U.S., located on its East Coast along the Atlantic Ocean. On its borders there are Maryland to the west and south, New Jersey to the northeast, and Pennsylvania to the north. The state name originates from Baron De La Warr, an Englishman who was the first Governor of Pennsylvania. It is situated on a peninsula that is divided into three counties. It was one of the 13 colonies to fight in the American Revolution, and in 1787 this tiny state was the first to ratify the U.S. Constitution, forever giving it the name “The First State”.
The state capital is Dover. It has an area of 6,452 km², making it the 49th in terms of state size in the U.S. The population is only 917,000 citizens. Geographically, most of its land is a level plain, making it ideal for agriculture, and the climate along the Atlantic provides cold, rainy and snowed winters, and relatively hot and humid summers. The early settlers of Delaware were indigenous Indian tribes, and then later white Westerns from Holland came to inhabit the region. In 1664 the area was conquered by the British, a fact that has left its mark in the state character.
