BokepThe State of Hawai'i (Hawaiian: Moku'aina o Hawai'i) became the 50th state of the United States of America on August 21, 1959. The archipelagic state is situated in the North Pacific Ocean, 2,300 miles (3,700 km) from the mainland, at 21°18'41"N, 157°47'47"W. In the 19th century, Hawaii was also known as the Sandwich Islands.
An archipelago in the mid-Pacific, and thus commonly included in Oceania, it is not part of North America. Hawai'i is the southernmost state of the United States; it would be the westernmost, if not for Alaska. It is one of only two states (Alaska is the other) that are outside the contiguous United States, and do not share a border with another U.S. state.
Hawai'i is the only state of the United States that
- is without territory on the mainland of any continent
- is completely surrounded by water, and continues to grow in area because of active extrusive lava flows, most notably from Kilauea (Kilauea).
- is entirely in the tropics.
Except for Easter Island, Hawai'i is farther away from land than any other landmass on Earth. Hawai'i's tallest mountain, Mauna Kea stands over 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) and is taller than Mount Everest if followed to its base at the floor of the Pacific Ocean.Bokep
