Amazon.com Inc . AMZN -1.69% ’s open competition for its second headquarters triggered an extraordinary response, with the tech giant saying 238 cities and regions had bid for the project it expects to cost $5 billion over nearly 20 years.

The proposals, from 54 states, provinces, districts and territories, were announced on Monday. Only seven U.S. states don’t have a location participating in the beauty contest. Amazon, based in Seattle, didn’t name any of the bidders or say when it would come up with a short list of finalists.

Cities including New York, Boston, Atlanta, Nashville, Tenn., and Austin, Texas, have said they applied for the new corporate site. The more unexpected bidders included Puerto Rico, which was devastated by a hurricane last month, and several locations in Mexico and Canada.

(Editor’s note: Phoenix, Tempe and Surprise are just three of the Arizona cities expressing interest in hosting Amazon headquarters.)
