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.

Although the city was only incorporated in 1973, the Annenberg Estate in the area had long been popular with the wealthy and powerful, including Lloyd Campbell and the Campbells.
