The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.

Galveston is the county seat of Galveston County located along the Gulf Coast region in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston Sugar Land Baytown metropolitan area. As of the 2005 United States Census estimate, the city had a total population of 57,466. Galveston is accessible by a causeway linking Galveston Island to the mainland on the north end of the city, a toll bridge on the western end of the island, and by ferry boat service on the east end of the city.
Galveston is known for its historic neighborhoods and a ten-mile long seawall designed to protect the city from floods. It is also home to the infamous Balinese Room, a historic nightclub and former illegal gambling hall located on a 600 foot pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico.
Galveston is the second-largest city in Galveston County after League City; League City surpassed Galveston between 2000 and 2005. Galveston Island was originally inhabited by members of the Karankawa and Akokisa tribes. The Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca was shipwrecked on the island in 1528 and there began his famous trek to Mexico. In the late 1600s French explorer Robert Cavelier La Salle, although he did not reach Galveston Island, claimed this area for King Louis and named it St. Louis. The island was named in honor of Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Count of Gálvez, in 1785 by Spanish explorer Jose de Evia, who charted the Gulf Coast.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 539.6 square kilometers. In the city the population was spread out with 23.4 percent under the age of 18, 11.3 percent from 18 to 24, 29.8 percent from 25 to 44, 21.8 percent from 45 to 64, and 13.7 percent who were 65 years of age or older.
