Alaska, the Final Frontier
Occupying the position as the 49th state in the United States, Alaska also known as the final frontier shares its borders with the country of Canada with the southern region sharing its borders with the British Colombia regions of Canada. The Northern sides of the states are in proximity to the Beaufort seas which form the southern tip of the Arctic sea, while the western and southern regions of the state give away into the Pacific Ocean.
The state is the fourth-least populous with most population over the 750,000 residents of the state residing in the city of Anchorage which is the largest metropolitan region in the state. The climate is very cold due to the close proximity to the Arctic with the economy being concentrated on the production of oil and natural gas along with fishing as well; there are significant military bases as well which aid the economy.
Highlights of Alaska
Alaska was one of the last states that were to be purchased by the United States, over the course of the 18th century, the state was under the control of several European powers who exploited the state for its resources; however, the state was later purchased by the United States from Russian empire on a mutual agreement at the rate of 2 cents per acre which saw it being inducted as the 49th state of the United States on 1959. In comparison, Alaska is the largest state in the United States even in comparison with Texas and other sovereign states but still it is not included in the colloquial use.
The state is home to many national parks boasting great wildlife, although most of the northern areas are covered in ice and oil fields, the shoreline and the Aleutian shorelines are home to many active volcanoes of the pacific region. The religious factor of the state is pretty diversified although mostly dominated by Christians. The main sources of income for the state comes from oil production as massive oil pipelines from the north flow down towards the western United States, there is also a significant production of natural gas as well which is transported by the gas pipelines. The state also has fishing as one of the prime sources of income as well as food since the lack of resources has led to a high cost of living in the state.
Alaska houses one of the most prominent United States Military bases, the Clear Air Force Station is the most invaluable strategically located base in the country, it has all the early warning systems for any approaching Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles. It also houses several Radar and Satellite control stations, the whole station is one of the most defensive locations and is crucial for the defensive role of the United States.
The base was first established after the removal of the defunct Alaskan railroad and by 1960 showed great technological promise; especially at the height of the cold war; the advanced systems were capable of easily tracking signals in all directions and aided the States with information due to its close proximity with the Russian airspace. The base is set to be devoid of any housing and nearby landmarks in order to prevent any forms of interference, there are several advanced technology radar and satellite scanners easily visible and pick up signals in all directions.
The base housing is problematic due to the low number of buildings on-site to prevent interference; however, the active personnel are often set up in hotels along with their family till housing is provided.
