About 50 States of US

The United States of America is country located in North America in the Western Hemisphere. The USA consists of fifty (50) individual states
and one federal district, the capital, Washington DC. Forty-eight of the states are contiguous, meaning connected.

Alaska is not directly connected to the other forty-eight states, but still located on the same continent, separated by part of Canada from the rest of the lower forty-eight. Alaska is part of the continental United States, but not the contiguous United States.

Hawaii, located far out in the Pacific Ocean, is not connected to any of the states, and is not part of the contiguous or continental United States.

Each of the states has its own state-level government, but the states are unified, falling under the federal government that governs all fifty states, and is headed by the President of the United States.
