Oklahoma became the 46th state in 1907. Today the state is among the nation's top producers of natural gas and crude oil. Oklahoma is one of America’s most diverse states geographically as it is home to a wide variety of ecological regions ranging from mountain ranges to semi-arid plains. Most of the state lies in an area known as Tornado Alley. Over 25 Native American languages are spoken in Oklahoma. The state song is "Oklahoma!" from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical of the same name.
