Alaska is by far the largest state of the United States of America by land area. Nicknamed "the last frontier", Alaska is sparsely populated; the state was purchased by the United States for $7,200,000 from the Russian Empire in 1867, and gained statehood in 1959 as the 49th state. Separated from the "lower 48" by Canada, Alaska can be a challenging destination; most of the state is in the Arctic. Except vast forests and frozen tundra, Alaska contains the ten highest mountain peaks in the United States. West of Alaska is the Bering Strait, and the eastern tip of Asia/Russia.

Situated nearly at the center of the north Pacific Ocean, Hawaii marks the northeast corner of Polynesia. While it was once a major hub for the whaling, sugar and pineapple industries, it is now economically dependent on tourism and the U.S. military. The natural beauty of the islands continues to be one of Hawaii's greatest assets. Honolulu is the state's capital, largest city, and cultural hub. Hawaiian and English are the official languages of Hawaii.
