American History

In 1806, as part of the Canadian Company, a fur trading business, Jean Paul DeMeau founded Fort Couer in the southwest of present day Requoia.

The area stayed as the most populous region of Requoia and the name was eventually shorted to Ouer.

During the American Gold Rush of 1849, ten of thousands of people migrated west to Requoia. The most fertile area for gold resided north of Ouer along the Pacific Ocean in what is present day Emerald Beach.

On March 15, 1856, Requoia was admitted to the union. Railroad expansion in the 1880s allowed for further inhabitation of the state.

In 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt established Olwuwoptee National Forest in the northeast region of the state.

In the 1980s, Ouer's downtown became the largest financial district on the west coast before an earthquake in 2005 saw a large rebuild of the city.

Points of Interest

Olwuwoptee National Forest

Located in the northeast region of Requoia, Olwuwoptee National Forest was established in 1908. The forest is home to Mount DeMeau, the 23rd tallest peak in the United States (14,297 feet). The forest houses some of the tallest redwoods in North America. Olwuwoptee was the last known sighting of the quarest, an extinct owl.

Lake Renoir resides on the western edge of the park. The water turns pink every fall before settling back to light blue in late November. No one is quite sure why.

Emerald Beach

With some of the largest waves ever recorded, Emerald Beach is one of the top destinations on the planet for surfing. A unique set of circumstance make it so.

The Astor Canyon runs 136 miles under the Pacific Ocean with its deepest point close to four miles beneath the surface. Aided by the Pacific's winds and the canyon's headwall cresting just off the coast, waves have swelled to over 160 feet in height at the north end of the beach, where locals and decorated surfers hold a strong hold on the water.

The middle and southern end of the beach experience more mild swells for beginners looking to surf.

The beach was heavily featured in Woody Allen's 1976 film, Waves of Change. Allen was nominated for best original screenplay, losing out to Frank Pierson for Dog Day Afternoon.


With a population of 1.1 million, Ouer is the largest city in Requoia. In the 1980s, it was the financial hub of the America's west coast.

In 2005, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake ripped the city to its seams with damage totaling over 1.4 billion. The city's rebuild has been hailed as one of the most forward-thinking endeavors and an important model for sustainability on planet earth.

The city is powered by the Pacific Ocean's winds and due to its mostly sunny climate (302 days of sunlight each year), solar power as well. Every skyscraper and retail building houses a vertical hydroponic farm on its lowest level. Only one electric vehicle is allowed per household and the city is the most bicycle-friendly in the US.
