California is one of the Pacific Coastal states of United States. Its borders are Nevada and Arizona on east, Pacific Ocean on west, Oregon on north, and Mexican state of Baja California on the south. The Colorado River forms the southern portion of the state's eastern border. California entered the Union on September 9, 1850, as the 31st state. Agriculture and mining have always been important to the economy of California. Industrial activity expanded rapidly in the 20th century along with a booming population.

By the 1990s, California had a larger population than any other state and was the leading producer by value of both agricultural and manufactured goods. The name "California" was first given to the Baja California Peninsula by the Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542 and was applied by other explorers to more northern areas. The word is derived from the name of an imaginary island in a popular Spanish romance of the time. California is also known as the "Golden State". Its major cities are Sacramento (the capital), Los Angeles (the largest city), San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Long Beach, and Oakland. California is the third-largest state in the United States (after Alaska and Texas).
