The Peace Garden State
«штат-сад», «штат мира и покоя». Явно рекламное название штата Северная Дакота. Слово garden здесь призвано вызывать ассоциации, связанные с мирным сельским пейзажем, зеленью ухоженных полей. Северная Дакота — самый сельский из всех штатов; свыше 90% площади занимают там фермы и большинство населения (свыше 60%) проживает в сельской местности. По производству пшеницы Северная Дакота занимает второе место в США после Канзаса.
