Situated in the northern most tip of North America, Alaska is one of the coldest regions in the whole continent. This state shares its border with the British Columbia region of Canada. Many sources on the internet state that the population of Alaska is scarce, perhaps the least when compared to the other 49 states. It is believed that in 1867, the United States acquired this state from Russia, which governed Alaska back then.
