Map of the United States with Alaska highlighted

Alaska is a state situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent. According to the 2010 United States Census, Alaska is the 3rd least populous state with 736,732 inhabitants but is the largest by land area spanning 665,384.04 square miles (1,723,336.8 km2) of land.[1] Alaska has 148 incorporated places which include cities and unified city-boroughs.

Incorporated cities in Alaska are categorized as either "general law" (subdivided into "first class" and "second class") or "home rule". The powers and functions of general law cities are defined by Alaska state laws, while home rule cities have all legislative powers not prohibited by law or charter. Alaska Statute 29 requires that a community must have at least 400 permanent residents to incorporate as a home rule or first class city.[2][3]
