Superior (SU) is a state located in the Great Lakes Region of the United States that shares its sole land border with Wisconsin to the south and maritime borders with Michigan across the Mackinac Strait to the south and the Canadian province of Ontario to the east-northeast.

Admitted to the Union as the 35th state on April 20, 1858, the state is a relatively popular tourist destination, as well as a major source of timber and even moderate amounts of copper and iron from local clean mines. Superior's Huron Mountains, specifically the 5300-foot Mount Arvon, are host to a series of ski resorts, popular with both locals and year-round tourists due to both the height of the mountains and the monthly lake effect snows.


Superior is subdivided into a total of 15 counties, and roughly 350 townships, respectively. Below are listed all 15 counties in order of population.
