Virginia Corporation (C-Corp & S-Corp) Formation
Virginia LLC Formation

Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state in the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States between the Atlantic Coast and the Appalachian Mountains. It was named for Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen. The capital of the Commonwealth is Richmond and Virginia Beach is the most-populous city, and Fairfax County is the most-populous political subdivision.

History and nature make Virginia a leading tourist centre. Within its borders lie many important historical monuments. By the early 21st century Virginia was among the most prosperous states in the South and in the country as a whole.

In August 2020, the Virginia’s population is estimated at 8,626,210, a growth rate of 1.15%, which ranks 13th in the United States. Nearly three-fourths of Virginia’s residents are of white European descent. African Americans constitute a substantial minority—about one-fifth of the population. 85.9% of Virginia residents aged five and older spoke English at home as a first language.

Like the U.S. Constitution, the Constitution of Virginia established three branches of Virginia government. The three branches and their primary responsibilities are:

  • Legislative branch – General Assembly, made up of the Senate and the House of Delegates – creates laws
  • Executive branch – The governor – implements and enforces laws
  • Judicial branch – The Virginia Supreme Court and lesser state courts – interprets laws.

Virginia's economy has diverse sources of income, including local and federal government, military, farming and high-tech. This state has developed a well-balanced economy far beyond its original agricultural base, and since the 1960s the state’s annual economic productivity usually has been slightly higher than that of the United States as a whole.

Virginia ranks among the top states in per capita distribution of federal funds and has one of the highest per capita incomes in the Southern region.
