The state of Alaska is the northwestern part of North America and the state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific. The country also has five
populated and nine unpopulated territories in the Pacific and the Caribbean. At 3.79 million square miles (9.83 million km2) in total and with around
317 million people, the United States is the third or fourth-largest country by total area and third largest by population. It is one of the world's
most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many countries.
