About Pasadena


Southeast Texas, Harris County: Pasadena, U.S. Between the Houston Ship Channel and the Clear Lake region, it borders Houston to the west. It was established in 1895 and given the name Pasadena, California, by J.H. Burnett. By 1920, the region had seen the construction of several oil refineries. Following World War II, the city experienced tremendous growth because to nearby industrial development, particularly in the petrochemical and aerospace industries. San Jacinto (community) College and the Texas Chiropractic College both have their headquarters in Pasadena (1908). The city has had a philharmonic orchestra since 1982. The annual San Jacinto Strawberry Festival is held in the city. A yearly rodeo, the Pasadena Historical Museum, and the Armand Bayou Nature Center are a few additional attractions. Inc. 1929; population 149,043 in 2010; 151,950 in 2020.


The United States, sometimes known as the United States of America, commonly referred to as America, is a federal republic with 50 states in North America. The 48 contiguous states that are located in the central latitudes of the continent are joined by Hawaii, an island state in the centre of the Pacific Ocean, and Alaska, a state at the far western end of North America. The conterminous states are encircled by Canada to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The United States is the world’s fourth-largest country by area (after Russia, Canada, and China). Washington, which includes the District of Columbia, the federal capital region established in 1790, serves as the nation’s capital.


The United States’ greatest strength is likely its enormous variety. Its physical habitat spans the Arctic and the subtropics, a lush rain forest and a parched desert, and a rough mountain top and a flat prairie. Despite having a sizable overall population by global standards, the United States has a comparatively low population density. The nation includes some of the largest urban regions in the globe as well as some of the largest landscapes that are nearly entirely devoid of human settlement.


The population of the United States is quite diversified. Contrary to a nation like China, which primarily assimilated indigenous peoples, the United States’ diversity is mostly the result of extensive and ongoing global immigration. The United States has a greater variety of racial, ethnic, and cultural varieties than most other nations. Tens of millions of immigrants who, for the most part, came to America in search of better social, political, and economic opportunities than they had in their home countries have contributed to enriching, testing, and constantly redefining the national character in addition to the presence of living Native Americans (including American Indians, Aleuts, and Eskimos) and the descendants of Africans brought as slaves to the New World. (It should be noted that although the phrases “America” and “Americans” are frequently used interchangeably to refer to the United States and its residents, respectively, they are also used more broadly to refer to North, South, and Central America as a whole and to their respective populations.)


By gross domestic product, the United States is the world’s most powerful economy (GDP). The country’s wealth can be attributed in part to its abundant natural resources and massive agricultural output, but it owes more to its highly developed industry. The United States is the most significant individual element in international trade due to the sheer size of its economy, despite its relative economic self-sufficiency in many areas. Major sections of the global total are represented by its imports and exports. Additionally, the United States has an impact on the world economy by serving as both a source and a destination for investment capital. The nation nonetheless maintains one of the most diverse economies on Earth, giving the majority of its citizens access to one of the greatest levels of living.


With a history of fewer than 250 years, the United States is a young country by global standards; it wasn’t until the middle of the 20th century that it reached its present size. The United States was the first of the European colonies to successfully secede from its motherland, and it was the first country to be founded on the principle that a nation’s sovereignty belongs to its people, not to the government. The nation’s first 150 years were mostly consumed by its own territorial and economic development as well as societal issues that finally resulted in civil war and a still ongoing period of reconciliation. The United States became a major global force in the 20th century, and it has remained one of the leading powers ever since World War II. The strains and demands of its dominant position have put to the test the beliefs and ideals of its founders; neither has it always carried this burden willingly nor readily. The United States continues to provide its citizens with unmatched prospects for riches and personal success. However, the country’s infrastructure is threatened by the depletion of its resources, pollution of its environment, and persistent social and economic inequity that keeps some sections in poverty and blight.


The article Washington discusses the District of Columbia. See the entries on Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, and San Francisco for discussion of other significant U.S. cities. Puerto Rico, which is covered in the article Puerto Rico, and a number of Pacific islands—Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa—are political entities that are connected to the United States.


The two main groups of elements that shape the physical environment in the United States are the first, the geologic, which determines the major patterns of landforms, drainage, and mineral resources and, to a lesser extent, the distribution of soils, plants, and animals, and the second, the atmospheric. Even if these factors interact somewhat, they each produce distinct map patterns, thus they effectively continue to exist as two distinct geographies. (Alaska and Hawaii are covered in the articles there as well, while this one only deals with the contiguous United States.
