State info:

Virginia

Virginia, Old Dominion, Old Dominion State, VA; a state in the eastern United States - one of the original 13 colonies - one of the Confederate States in the American Civil War

The Commonwealth of Virginia is an American state on the Atlantic Coast of the Southern United States. The name Virginia is traced to Queen Elizabeth I, who was known as the "Virgin Queen" because she never married. The state is also known as the "Old Dominion" and sometimes "Mother of Presidents", because it is the birthplace of eight U.S. presidents. The state is geographically shaped by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Chesapeake Bay, home to much of the state's flora and fauna. The capital of the commonwealth is Richmond, Virginia Beach is the most populous city, and Fairfax County is the most populous political subdivision. The state population is over seven million.
