The United States of America (the U.S., the U.S.A., the States, the United States, or America) is a federal republic in North America. With a history of over 200 years, the country is considered to be the oldest constitutional republic in the world.
The U.S. originated from 13 colonies in British North America that declared their independence in 1776 and were recognized as the new nation following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 37 new states were added to the original 13 as the nation expanded across the North American continent and acquired a number of overseas possessions. Throughout its history, the nation's growth was marked by the development of constitutional democracy and civil liberties. The two most traumatic experiences in the nation's history were the Civil War (1861-65) and the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Buoyed by victories in World Wars I and II, as well as the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the U.S. emerged as the world's sole superpower or hyperpower. Its dominant global influence in economic, political, military, cultural, scientific and technological affairs around the world currently remain unmatched.

California is a state spanning the southern half of the west coast of the contiguous United States. With a population of 36 million and an area of 158,402 square miles (410,000 km2), California is the largest U.S. state in population and the third largest in area.
The area was inhabited by Native Americans before European explorers started to make sporadic visits during the 16th Century. Spain colonized the territory during the late 1700s before it became part of Mexico after the Mexican War of Independence (1810-21). During the outset of the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), American settlers revolted and established the California Republic. Following the war, the area was given to the United States. The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought a huge population of immigrants into the area, and California became the 31st state of the United States in 1850.
