Issuer Summary

The State of California (the "State") is by far the most populous state in the nation, over 60 percent larger than the second-ranked state according to the 2000 U.S. Census.  The State's July 1, 2008 population of about 38.1 million represented over 12 percent of the total United States population.  California's economy, the largest among the 50 states and one of the largest and most diverse in the world, has major components in high technology, trade, entertainment, agriculture, manufacturing, government, tourism, construction and services.  The relative proportion of the various components of the California economy closely resembles the make-up of the national economy.
