South Carolina (Listeni /ˌsθ kærəˈlnə/) is a state in the deep south that borders Georgia to the south and North Carolina to the north. Originally part of the Province of Carolina, the Province of South Carolina was one of the 13 colonies that declared independence from the British Crown during the American Revolution. The colony was originally named by King Charles II of England in honor of his father Charles I, as Carolus is Latin for Charles. South Carolina was the first state to vote to secede from the Union and was the founding state of the Confederate States of America. According to the 2010 United States Census, the state's population is 4,625,384 and ranked 24th among the U.S. states. South Carolina contains 46 counties and its capital is Columbia.
