  • Nicknames: "The Golden State," "The Left Coast," "Kah-lee-fornia" (if you're Arnie), and "Leftist Pinko Homosexual Central" (if you're a bitter Republican that covets our electoral votes; or if you've never been to rural California).
  • The 31st state in the USA; admitted on September 9, 1850.

  • Home to:

- 1,340 miles of varied and beautiful American coastland

- The majority of America's media production.

- The best burger restaurant in all fifty states.

- The Ronald Reagan Memorial Library.

- The Governator.

- Disneyland, or as it's affectionately known by people formerly employed by Walt & Co., Mauschwitz.

- An estimated 2 million illegal immigrants, which may or may not include...

- Roughly 10% of the estimated 820,000 British expats in America, living in the Santa Monica area alone (source pending).

- A myriad of taco and burrito shops, a direct result of the above point and God's gift to hung-over Californios.
