Español California

California es un estado federado de los Estados Unidos situado en la costa suroeste del país. Cuenta con una población de 38 millones de habitantes y ocupa una superficie de 410.000 km². Con estos datos, California se consolida como el estado más poblado de Estados Unidos y el tercero con mayor extensión (después de Alaska y Texas). La zona fue habitada por los nativos americanos antes de las primeras expediciones europeas en el siglo XVI. España colonizó las áreas de la costa del territorio en 1769 antes de que éste pasara a formar parte de México tras la Guerra de la Independencia de México (1810-1821). California fue parte del territorio mexicano hasta la guerra entre México y Estados Unidos de 1846-1848. Al término de la guerra, y como condición para la paz, la República Mexicana fue obligada a ceder el territorio a los Estados Unidos en el Tratado de Guadalupe Hidalgo. La Fiebre del Oro en el período 1848-1849 provocó una inmigración de 90.000 estadounidenses procedentes del resto del país. Finalmente, California se convirtió en el 31º estado de los Estados Unidos en 1850.

English California - State of California
California (pronounced Listeni /kælɪˈfɔrnjə/) is a state located on the West Coast of the ► United States. Nicknamed "The Golden State," it is the most populous[5] and third-largest state by land area, after Alaska and ► Texas. California's diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast to the west, to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the east, to the Mojave Desert areas in the southeast and to the Redwood–Douglas fir forests of the northwest. T37 thousand recorded annually. The name California once referred to a large area of North America claimed by Spain that included much of modern-day Southwestern United States and the Baja California peninsula. Beginning in the late 18th century, the area known as Alta California, comprising the California territory north of the Baja Peninsula, was colonized by the Spanish Empire as part of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. In 1821, Alta California became a part of ► Mexico following its successful war for independence. Shortly after the beginning of the Mexican-American War in 1846, a group of American settlers in Sonoma declared an independent California Republic in Alta California. The late 20th century saw the development of the technology and information sectors, punctuated by the growth of Silicon Valley. In addition to California's prosperous agricultural industry, other important contributors to its economy include aerospace, education, and manufacturing. If California were a country, it would be the eighth-largest economy in the world[9] and the 35th most populous nation.
