Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area and the least densely populated of the fifty states in the union. Approximately half of Alaska's 736,732 residents live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska's economy is dominated by oil, natural gas, fishing industries--resources which it has in abundance. Tourism is also a significant part of the economy. It is often referred to at the "The Last Frontier," because of it's rich virgin forests, beautiful huge mountains, and many waterways that entice hunters, fisherman, hikers, campers, and outdoor sportsmen from all over the world.
