District Of Columbia State

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States.

The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast.

As permitted by the US Constitution, the District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Congress and is therefore not a part of any US state.
