About Hawaii

While geographically, Hawaii is located in the Polynesian region of Oceania; it is the only state of the country outside North America. As an archipelago, a set of islands, Hawaii is one of the country’s most diverse states because it was built by migration. Moreover, it is also one of the wealthiest states in the nation, even with having one of the country’s highest living costs.

Polynesians initially settled in the Hawaiian islands. In 1810, the numerous independent kingdoms became unified and remained independent until its annexation to the United States in 1898 as a strategic territory. Years later, Hawaii became the most recent state to join the union on August 21, 1959.

Hawaii’s capital and largest city is Honolulu. The state also hosts the U.S. Pacific Fleet, the world’s largest naval command, and employs over 75,000 people.
