State info

Alaska is the largest state in the U.S. by area and the only U.S. state that borders two foreign countries and two oceans: Russia, Canada, the Arctic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. It is among the least populated states in the U.S. and most of its 730,000+ residents populate the city of Anchorage and not its capital, Juneau. In addition, Alaska is dominated by the fishing, oil and natural gas industries.

Alaska has 20 members of the State Senate, 40 members of the House of Representatives, two members of the U.S. Senate and one member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
