Name: Southern San Andreas

The State of San Andreas is a fictional West Coast state in the United States. The state is based on California and Nevada. Only the southern half of the state is present in the events of Grand Theft Auto V.



The only area of San Andreas that is playable in GTA V is Los Santos and Blaine County. However, this area is obviously not representative of all the state. Though the map in GTA V is an island, the map is simply designed that way in order to keep the feeling of freedom for the player. In theory, Los Santos and Blaine County may very well be connected with other fictional areas of the state, but simply do not appear.

The small portion of San Andreas in GTA V features a number of mountain ranges, farms, deserts, woodlands, lakes, parks, towns, and a major city (Los Santos). The capital of San Andreas is unknown, but it may be based on Sacramento.
