California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.
Coachella is a municipality in Riverside County, California. It is the easternmost city in the region collectively known as the Coachella Valley. In 2005, the population of the city was 40,000 and an area of 53.9 square kilometers. According to 2006 state-funded economic survey, Coachella ranks third lowest in average personal income of any California city and one of ten poorest cities in the state. The city's remote location from urban areas and the continuous seasonal labor migration caused the high poverty rate.
