Bismarck is the capital of the U.S. state of North Dakota and the county seat of Burleigh County.[3] It is the second most populous city in North Dakota after Fargo. Its population was 55,532 at the 2000 census. Its metropolitan population was 94,719 in 2000, but was estimated in 2009 to have grown to 106,286.[4] Bismarck was founded in 1872 and has been North Dakota's capital since it gained statehood in 1889.

Bismarck is situated on the east bank of the Missouri River, directly across the river from Mandan.[5] The two cities make up the core of the Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Statistical Area.

As a hub of retail and health care, Bismarck is the economic center of a large portion of south-central North Dakota and north-central South Dakota.
