Information about the State of Hawaii Below:
The only US state to be located outside the US landmass, the state of Hawaii is a group of islands located in Polynesia, in the Oceania region of the Pacific Ocean. Over 137 islands are located in and around the Hawaiian islands.
8 of the 137 islands are primary islands and are registered under the United States. Seven of these (Hawaiʻi, Maui, Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi & Niʻihau) are permanently inhabited and are active members of the state’s economy. The 8th island - Kahoʻolawe – is uninhabited and access is restricted.
The state of Hawaii is located 2000 miles outside the US. The topography consists of main islands and islets, connected through waterways. Only a few of the islands have active volcanos, while the rest are dormant. The state's tallest mountain, Mauna Kea, has its base at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and is said to be taller than Mount Everest if measured top-to-bottom. Hawaii is also home to much indigenous flora and fauna and has many expansive national parks to its name.
Hawaii is also the only state in the US which can naturally cultivate and grow coffee.

Hawaiian governors are directly elected by the residents of the State, and their duties and responsibilities are administered according to the Hawaii State Constitution Article V. The State of Hawaii was the first US state to have had an Asian-American governor. The current Governor of Hawaii is Democrat David Yutaka Ige, the 8th Governor of Hawaii and serving from 2014.

The Supreme Court of Hawaii is the highest legal authority in the Hawaiian islands.
