Welcome to the California Wiki
California, covering every aspect of this stand alone state... and life, that too
California adjoins the Pacific Ocean to the west, Oregon to the north, Nevada and Arizona to the east, and the Mexican state of Baja California to the south. With an area of 160,000 square miles (414,000 km2), it is the third-largest state in the United States in size, after Alaska and Texas. If it were a country, California would be the 59th-largest in the world in area.
In the middle of the state lies the California Central Valley, bounded by the coastal mountain ranges in the west, the Sierra Nevada to the east, the Cascade Range in the north and the Tehachapi Mountains in the south. The Central Valley is California's agricultural heartland and grows approximately one-third of the nation's food.
California also has the highest GDP out of any state, around USD$2.450 trillion of 2015. If it was an independent county, it would have the 5th largest enconomy in the world, after Germany, Japan, China, and USA.
