California is the third largest and most populous state. It is home to two of the country’s largest metro areas, Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as other major cities such as San Diego, San Jose, Sacramento, and Oakland. Fifty-three of the 2012 Fortune 500 companies call California home, most of them located in the San Francisco or Los Angeles metropolitan areas.

The main industries that call California home are the technology and entertainment industries. San Francisco and Silicon Valley are home to a large number of technology and web-based companies. Major technology companies such as Google, Apple, Adobe, Hewlett Packard, eBay, and Facebook have their main headquarters in Silicon Valley.

The entertainment industry makes a major home in Los Angeles, with television, film, music, and game entertainment driving the economy in the greater Los Angeles area. Media, technology, fashion, and tourism are also major industries in Los Angeles.

Agriculture is another major industry in California, particularly in fruit, vegetable, and wine production. California produces nearly 90% of all American wine, and Wine Country in northern California also brings in a lot of tourists.
