On March 1, 1867, two years after the Civil War in America ended, the 37th state to be admitted to the union was Nebraska. Some of the best farmland and ranchland of the United States belong to this state. The discovery of gold in California in the year 1848 saw a growth in the number of settlers to the Territory of Nebraska before it achieved statehood, with larger numbers arriving to settle in 1860. When Nebraska was still a territory, the capital city was Omaha. Lancaster was declared the capital when the seat of government in Nebraska moved as it became a state. The name was later changed to Lincoln as a memorial to recently assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. Nebraska is surrounded on the east by Missouri and Iowa, on the north by South Dakota, on the west by Wyoming and Colorado, and on the south by Kansas.

Nebraska has 93 counties, with NE as its postal abbreviation. Many of the counties were named after prominent people in the area, early settlers, or historical figures in U.S. history. Others were named for Native American tribes or geographical features.

The judicial system of Nebraska distributes the judicial jurisdiction among the different courts including the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, county courts, and district courts. The administrative head is the Supreme Court.

A judicial nominating commission gives the governor a statewide list of candidates to appoint as chief justice, who has the status of representing the whole state. The judicial nominating commission also chooses the six associate justices that should represent each district. After each census, the legislature is responsible for redistricting judicial districts to make them more or less equal in population size.

It is the responsibility of the Supreme Court to give leadership in administration and hear appeals for the whole judicial system of the state.

Some searches show offenders incarcerated in the entire prison system including county jails and some only state prisons.
