Shown below is a scale Map of the Whole World with the United States highlighted in blue.  It shows how the largest state in America looks in comparison to the rest of the world.

Which state is the largest in America depends on what you mean by that. Sometimes the question refers to land area in square miles. Other times it refers to state populations.

In terms of total land (and water) area, the largest state in the nation is Alaska. It spans 663,267 square miles.

Alaska occupies the extreme northwestern region of North America. It is separated from Russia by the Bering Strait, and from the mainland United States by more than five hundred miles of Canadian territory.

  • If measured from west to east, Alaska would easily span more than the width of the entire mainland United States. 
  • Alaska has more than three million lakes.
  • Alaska's largest lake is Lake Iliamna, which measures about a thousand square miles. 
  • Alaska's record high temperature topped 100 degrees Fahrenheit in 1915.

Eight stars of gold on a field of blue -

Alaska's flag. May it mean to you

The blue of the sea, the evening sky,

The mountain lakes, and the flow'rs nearby;

The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,

The precious gold of the hills and streams;

The brilliant stars in the northern sky,

The "Bear" - the "Dipper" - and, shining high,

The great North Star with its steady light,

Over land and sea a beacon bright.

Alaska's flag - to Alaskans dear,

The simple flag of a last frontier.
