The State of Washington lies in the Pacific Northwest region of the Western USA. It was formed from the western part of the Washington Territory, which was ceded by the British Empire in 1846 in accordance with the Oregon Treaty in the settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute. The state, which is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, Oregon to the south, Idaho to the east, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north, was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889. Olympia is the state capital, the largest city Seattle. Washington is often referred to as Washington State to distinguish it from the nation's capital, Washington, D.C.
