Queen ant identification Minnesota.

This is my first queen, I’m very new to this. I have my test tube setup and she’s laying eggs! This is a large ant - so large I’m having difficulty identifying other queens because they look small in comparison. A huge thanks to the AntsCanada YouTube channel for making sure my queen is treated right! Will someone please help identify my queen which was found around mid May in Minnesota, USA?
