Nestled in the northeastern quadrant of Oklahoma, Tulsa is situated on the Arkansas River at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in northeast Oklahoma, a region known as "Green Country". With a population of more than 390,000, Tulsa is the second-largest city in the state of Oklahoma and 47th-largest city in the United States. Incorporated as a municipality on January 8, 1898, the city is the county seat of Tulsa County and the principal municipality of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area. Tulsa is known as the center for arts in Oklahoma. Art deco masterpieces adorn many downtown buildings and churches while works of art are found along the trails of the city's river parks.

For most of the 20th century, Tulsa held the nickname "Oil Capital of the World" and played a significant role as one of the most important hubs for the American petroleum industry. Though oil has historically dominated Tulsa's economy, the city boasts a diversified economic base including aerospace, finance, technology, telecommunications, health care, transportation, construction, distribution, and manufacturing. Products from Tulsa manufacturers account for about 60% of Oklahoma's exports. The Tulsa International Airport (TUL) and the Tulsa Port of Catoosa, the nation's most inland seaport, connect the region with international trade and transportation. An American Airlines maintenance base at Tulsa International Airport is the city's largest employer and the largest maintenance facility in the world.
