Virginia (VA) is a state located on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Admitted to the Union as the 9th state on June 25, 1788, Virginia was one of the Original Fourteen States and the birthplace of many important figureheads of the American Revolution. The state capital of Williamsburg, founded and first settled in 1632, is one of the oldest cities in the United States. Virginia shares borders with Maryland to the north and east, Washington, D.C. to the east, Pennsylvania to the north, Ohio to the west-northwest, Kentucky to the west, and Tennessee and Carolina to the south. It is also the 9th-largest state in the US, with a population of just over 9.7 million.


Virginia is subdivided into 135 counties and 38 independent cities, the latter of which function as county equivalents on the state level. Below are listed the ten largest in the state by population. Of these, four are independent cities.
