Utah is located in the Western part of the United States and is considered to be a fast growing state. It is one of only three states whose boundaries are entirely defined by lines of latitude and longitude. Approximately 2.7 million people live in the state of Utah yet most of the population, about 88%, live in the greater Salt Lake City metropolitan area making many parts in the rest of the state uninhabited. Thus it is ranked as the sixth most urbanized state in the nation.
While the residents enjoy a wide diversity of scenery from the snow capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the tree filled river valleys to the wild, arid sandstone region, the same cannot be said for diversity in religion. About 61% of the population belong to the Church of the Latter Day Saints or what is more commonly referred to as the Mormon Church. Brigham Young led a group of Mormons from Chicago in 1847 to establish a new settlement where they could practice their religion which frowned upon alcohol use but did allow men to have multiple wives. This led to the Utah war with the United States and so facing defeat the Mormon Church issued the 1890 Manifesto which banned the practice of polygamy and allowed Utah to become accepted into mainstream America as a state in 1896.
