Colorado Overview

Colorado is home to many agencies of the US federal government, the largest employer in the state. The Denver-Aurora metropolitan area has more federal employees than any other US city except Washington, DC.

Only in the Denver Federal Center are units of twenty-six different federal agencies, including the US Department of the Interior (USGS, US Bureau of Reclamation, US Bureau of Lands Management), the US Federal Emergency Management Agency and many others. It is also home to the US National Ice Laboratory, which stores and studies thousands of ice samples, mostly from Greenland and Antarctica.

Also in the state of Colorado there are divisions of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and others.

The Denver Mint, founded back in 1862, is the largest mint manufacturer in the world.

Many private corporations in the state of Colorado also work on orders from US federal agencies. Among the best known is Ball Aerospace & Technologies, whose divisions in Boulder, Broomfield and Westminster develop and manufacture various vehicles for space exploration and for military purposes. Among the company’s products are the equipment of the famous Hubble Space Telescope, the Orbital Solar Observatory, the Deep Impact spacecraft, designed to study comets, and many others.

Along with other federal organizations, the units and organizations of the US Armed Forces stationed in the state are of great importance for the economy of the state of Colorado and the employment of its population.

For example, the United States Air Force Academy, one of the largest and most prestigious military institutions of higher education in the United States of America, is located in Colorado Springs.

Here, near Colorado Springs, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, known as NORAD, is also based. Its units are stationed at Peterson Air Force Base and the famed Cheyenne Mountain Underground Complex.

In addition, the US Northern Command, US Aerospace Command, US Space Forces and Missile Defense Command, Buckley Air Force Base and other units are located in Colorado.

The tourism industry is also a significant contributor to the Colorado economy. In the United States, Colorado ski resorts are very popular, primarily Aspen. The national parks of Colorado are also attractive for tourists, including the famous Mesa Verde Park, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
