Detroit is the largest city in Michigan. As of 2005, the population was 886,675, making it 11th largest city in the United States of America. Even so, the population has fallen by more than half since its peak in the early 1950s - at one time the city was the 4th largest in the country.

Detroit is known worldwide as a center of automobile manufacturing (hence its two best-known nicknames: "Motor City" and "Motown"), as well as for its music. Apart "Motor City" and "Motown", Detroit has many other nicknames including "Arsenal of Democracy" (which was popular during World War II), as well as "The D", "D-Town", "Hockeytown", "Rock City" and "The 3-1-3" (from the city's telephone area area code).
