About 6,549,224 people live in Washington. But there's more than enough room for all of them to live considering there's 71,342 square miles to live on. The GDP per capita is $41,203. Washington borders the North Pacific Ocean.

A well known spot in Washington is Mt. St. Helens. The most recent major eruption was in 1980. The blast was more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped at Hiroshima at Japan in 1945. Almost 60 people were killed and over 300 structures were destroyed. the north face of the volcano was completely destroyed due to the pre land slide and then a horizontal blast.
