Information About Alaska
Alaska is a US state which is located in the north west extremity of North America. It is the largest state in the US by area, but the third least populated state and the most sparsely populated state in the entire US. Alaska has a maritime border with Russia and and border British Columbia and Yukon. It has a population of approximately 734,000 people with about half of the population living within the Anchorage metropolitan area alone. Alaska’s economy consists of mostly fishing, oil resources, natural gas, military bases and tourism.
In 1867, the US purchased Alaska from the Russian Empire for only 7.2 million dollars, which comes out to approximately two cents per acre. In 1959, it became the 49th state in the US. There are no official borders marking different regions in Alaska, but there are 6 generally accepted regions, which are South Central, Southeast, Interior, Southwest, North Slope and Aleutian Islands. Alaska has more than three million lakes, with marshland and wetland permafrost cover, and glacier ice. With more than 100,000 glaciers, Alaska has half of all the glaciers in the world.
In 1968, oil was discovered at Prudhoe Bay, which led to the completion of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. Since then, the oil boom has funded large state budgets. In 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez crashed, spilling over 11 million gallons of oil and prompting conservation debates and heated discussions over drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Still, more than 80% of the state’s revenue is derived from the extraction of petroleum. Agriculture and manufacturing is very limited in Alaska, and most goods are imported, which makes the price for food and other good extremely high compared to the rest of the country. MIlitary bases contribute to the economy greatly, and federal subsidies allow the state to keep their taxes low.
