Cuba (CU) is a U.S. state located in the Caribbean Sea. With a population of a little over 19.5 million, Cuba ranks as the fifth most populous state behind only California, Texas, Florida and New York.
Cuba was technically acquired from Spain following the Spanish-American War in 1898. Cuba wasn't officially annexed until 1902 when citizens voted unanimously for the island to be annexed into the United States. From 1902 until statehood in 1915, Cuba's population skyrocketed from 1.5 million to 6 million as settlers from southern states began moving to the new territory seeking fortune. Cuba's population also grew due to the multiple U.S. Army bases that were built on the island, such as in Guantanamo Bay.
Today, Cuba is one of only two states (the other being Puerto Rico) where the majority of the population is Hispanic. Cuba is one of four swing states and has been a key player in many elections including the close 1960 election between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy.
