Washington belongs to Maryland it can't be in Virginia because west Virginia would have to be first state before you get to Washington DC.

The US Capitol is actually not included in the 50 states that make up the United States. See info listed below -

Washington, D.C. Is the capital of the United States. It is coterminous with the District of Columbia (abbreviated as "D.C."). The city and the district are located on the banks of the Potomac River and bordered by the states of Virginia (to the west) and Maryland (to the north, east and south). The city was planned and developed in the late 18th century to serve as the permanent national capital; the federal district was formed to keep the national capital distinct from the states.

The city was named after George Washington, the first President of the United States. The district's name, "Columbia," is an early poetic name for the United States and a reference to Christopher Columbus, an early explorer of the Americas. The city is commonly referred to as Washington, The District, or simply D.C. In the 19th century, it was called the Federal City or Washington City.

Washington DC is not in a state by the way. DC stands for District of Colombia and it is carved from Virginia and Maryland, but it is not within either of these.
