Understanding earthquake behavior is crucial for predicting earthquakes' effects. One way of understanding long-term earthquake behavior is through simulation. Virtual California is a program developed to generate ensembles of earthquakes in a specified fault system. The theory underlying the program, some recent results, and several optimizations used to improve performance are presented.
