How to Say "Located in" in Russian - Prepositional Case Practice

I was searching on Twitter for more examples of the prepositional case in action based on this post WHERE DO YOU LIVE? ГДЕ ТЫ ЖИВЁШЬ?. I was practicing typing up some sentences describing different cities are located in different states and found...

When I type in that I'll get the translation in English.

Лас-Вегасе находящееся в Неваде.
Las Vegas is located in Nevada.

But when I ask for the translation from English into Russian, both Google and Yandex Translate were giving me a different result.

Las Vegas is located in Nevada.
Лас-Вегас находится в штате Невада.

The same thing for countries...

Рим находится в Италии.
Rome is located in Italy.
 
Рим находится в стране Италия.

Rome is located in the country Italy.

I will need to find a more advanced Russian grammar lesson to figure out this pattern. As typical, I look for samples on Twitter. It hadn't occurred to me that Lake Mead looks like the Dark Knight logo from the air.

I had recently found the blog called LifeHacker, where you can find tips about modern life like getting more out of your iPod with "ShrinkMyTunes (that was a link to the original Wired.com article). The software is available for $39.99. Considering I've only filled about 1 gig on my out-dated iPod, I don't need to take advantage of that tip.

I thought of that blog when I was surfing Hasbro's Monopoly site this evening (trying to get an electronic version to work on the new Windows Vista on the main computer). I found some Monopoly Game Tools that are absolutely necessary for the modern human being.

For example....

When I was about nine I cleaned up the bedroom and somehow managed to lose almost all of my Monopoly money. It was a tragedy of monumental proportions. No one wanted to come and play Monopoly at my house anymore. And when I was nine, about the only thing to do was play Monopoly because the Internet was a way-far-off reality.
