<p align="justify">''Arkansas is a state located in the southern region of the United States. Its name is an Algonquian name of the Quapaw Indians and the 32nd most populous of the United States. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state. The Territory of Arkansas was admitted to the Union as the 25th state on June 15, 1836. Currently, there are two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of four Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 35 members of the Arkansas State Senate and 100 members of the Arkansas House of Representatives. As of September 2013, Arkansas is one of 13 states that is under divided government and does not have a state government trifecta.''</p></td></tr>
