The District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state. The city and the U.S. state of Washington, which is on the country's Pacific coast, were both named in honor of George Washington.

The centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are in the District, including the Congress, President, and Supreme Court. Washington is home to many national monuments and museums, which are primarily situated on or around the National Mall.
