Topeka is a city within the central state of Kansas. It is the state capital and county seat of Shawnee County. Situated on the Kansas River within the northeast section of Kansas State, Topeka has a population of 127,473. The Topeka Metropolitan Statistical Area has a population of 230,824. Other counties within the metro area are Jefferson, Jackson, Shawnee, Osage and Wabaunsee.

The city of Topeka was the location of the landmark legal Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, where it was declared that it was unconstitutional to declare racial segregation within public schools. Three Navy ships have been named after Topeka to be able to commemorate its importance.

"Topeka" is word taken from the Loway and Kansa which means "to dig good potatoes." The Native Americans who occupied the area utilized the prairie potato as a major food source. The Kansa people referred to what is presently called the Kansas River as "Topeka." The name was first recorded during 1826, but the settlement was not referred to as Topeka until 1855 when the founders declared it "novel, of Indian origin and euphonious of sound." Joseph James (also called Jojim) was a mixed-blood Kansa Indian who thought of the name. The city was a Free-State town founded by Eastern antislavery men after the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill. Topeka was established as a city during 1857.

Much of the economy in Topeka is based around the sectors of services and government. Roughly one quarter of the workforce is employed by county, state and city governments, with the state of Kansas being the largest employer within the city. 30 per cent of the workforce is working in services industries. Many are employed in printing and publishing, food processing, iron foundries and flour mills. There are several Fortune 500 companies with manufacturing or distribution facilities within Topeka. Well-known businesses comprise Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Frito-Lay Inc., Payless Shoe Source, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway and Hallmark Cards.

Topeka has a wide range of art galleries with important collections of art. Galleries include the Topeka and Shawnee County Library and the Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University. A little known fact about the city of Topeka is that it is the home of the logo character for Mad Magazine, the character Alfred E. Neuman.
