Washington, D.C.

'''Washington, D.C.''', formally the '''District of Columbia''' and commonly referred to as '''Washington''', "'''the District'''", or simply '''D.C.''', is the capital (Capital city) of the United States. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast (East Coast of the United States). The U.S. Constitution (United States Constitution) provided for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction (District of Columbia home rule) of the Congress (United States Congress) and the District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state.

The states of Maryland and Virginia each donated land to form the federal district, which included the pre-existing settlements of Georgetown (Georgetown (Washington, D.C.)) and Alexandria (Alexandria, Virginia). Named in honor of George Washington, the City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the new national capital. In 1846, Congress returned the land originally ceded by Virginia (District of Columbia retrocession); in 1871, it created a single municipal government (District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871) for the remaining portion of the District.

Washington, D.C., had an estimated population of 658,893 in 2014, the 23rd-most populous city (List of United States cities by population) in the United States. Commuters from the surrounding Maryland and Virginia suburbs raise the city's population to more than one million during the workweek. The Washington metropolitan area, of which the District is a part, has a population of 5.8 million, the seventh-largest (Table of United States Metropolitan Statistical Areas) metropolitan statistical area (United States metropolitan statistical area) in the country.

The centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are in the District, including the Congress, President (President of the United States), and Supreme Court (Supreme Court of the United States). Washington is home to many national monuments and museums (List of museums in Washington, D.C.), which are primarily situated on or around the National Mall. The city hosts 176 foreign embassies (List of diplomatic missions in the United States) as well as the headquarters of many international organizations, trade unions, non-profit organizations, lobbying groups, and professional associations.

A locally elected mayor (Mayor of the District of Columbia) and a 13‑member council (Council of the District of Columbia) have governed the District since 1973. However, the Congress maintains supreme authority over the city and may overturn local laws. D.C. residents elect a non-voting (District of Columbia voting rights), at-large congressional delegate (Non-voting members of the United States House of representatives) to the U.S. House of Representatives, but the District has no representation in the U.S. Senate. The District receives three electoral votes (Electoral College (United States)) in presidential elections as permitted by the Twenty-third Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified in 1961.
