Clamash, officially the State of Clamash, is a state of the Federal States. The state is situated along the coast of the Asperic Ocean, with an international border with the Deodeca to the west, the state of Tauhon to the north, the state of Sierra to the northeast, state of Riopoderos to the east, Aquilia to the southeast, and state of Wahauja to the south. Clamashis known for mountains in the east, the flat Henrietta River Valley, and woodland hills. Due to its location and topography, Clamash is one of the rainiest states.

The state's name derives from the Clamash River, which's name is derived from the Castellanese "clamar" in reference to the former Blanco Rapids. Clamash has just over 1.5 million residents.

The largest city in Clamash is Wahanta, with approximately 80% of the state's population in the metropolitan area (Trentonson, Meade, & San Ramon Counties). Wahanta is a very important industrial and economic hub, developed as a port and rail hub for commodities of the West Lakes region. While transportation remains the principal sector of the city's business base, Wahanta has become a major center of the FSA insurance industry.

The state capital, Clifford, is part of the Wahanta-Clifford Metropolitan Area. Unlike Wahanta, Clifford is located on the ocean coast. Clifford is an older city than Wahanta and was originally a Castellanese mission. The city is home to the unicameral state government, which is the chief sector of the local economy. Clifford is home to Spiritus Apparitio University which is located at the site of the original mission.

Other important cities include:

-Gantiac, which is located at the crossroads of FS-50 and FS-91 and is home to the flagship state land-grant university, University of Clamash-Gantiac.

-Cook Springs, which is located in the Cordilleras. Cook Springs was named for the Cook Hot Springs, which are now a resort. The city is a popular year-round destination for locals, second-home buyers,a nd tourists. The 1992 Winter Games were held in Cook Springs.

History

Before Castellanese settlemeent, Native Archantan tribes, such as the Pahareek tribe, inhabited the area that now comprises of Clamash.

Unlike most of the states in the FSA, Clamash was never settled by the Ingerish. The Clamashegian coast was settled by the Castellanese in the early 1700s. Despite the fertility of the Henrietta River valley, the Castellanese only founded a few coastal settlements included San Ramon, Alaso, Canales, Mission, and Tara Harbor. After Deodeca's independence from Castellan, Clamash became a state in the nation of Deodeca. It was not until the early 1800s when Clamash became territory of FSA through the Wahauja Purchase. In 1866, the State of Clamash was admitted to the union.
