Madison is the capital of Wisconsin and site of the University of Wisconsin, one of the largest in the United States. Located in the south-central part of the state, Madison is culturally liberal with a large diversified employment base that extends beyond government and education to include finance, insurance, and high-tech manufacturing. The city is built on an isthmus between two lakes, Lake Monona and Lake Mendota. The State Capitol Building dominates the isthmus, and height restrictions keep other buildings from rising higher than the rotunda.
