    Hawaii, a U.S. state, is an isolated volcanic archipelago in the Central Pacific. The state of Hawaii derives its name from the name of its largest island, Hawaiʻi. This state was established on the 21st of August 1959 and is also known as the Paradise. The state capital of this state is Honolulu,
    it occupies an area of 10,931 mi2 and almost 1.42 million reside in this state.
    Hawaii is a state of islands, rugged landscapes of cliffs, waterfalls, tropical foliage and beaches with gold, red, black and even green sands.

    Natural Resources:
    It's only natural resources are its climate, soil, vegetation, groundwater supply, and surrounding ocean. Hawaii's fertile soil is composed of lava ash and soft, sandy stone. Because of the mild climate and fertile soil, the crop year never ends. The most abundant minerals are stone, cement, and sand and gravel.

    The Hawaiian Islands have a record year for tourism. Hawaii's economy is based on the succession of dominant industries. Defense is a large part of this state's economy. The industries of food and clothing play a small role in the Hawaiian economy.

    The American state of Hawaii experiences tropical but it experiences many different climates, depending on altitude and weather. The islands receive most rainfall from the trade winds on their north and east flanks as a result of orographic precipitation. Hawaii's climate is typical for the tropics, although temperatures and humidity tend to be less extreme because of near-constant trade winds from the east.

    There are four official counties in Hawaii: Honolulu, Kauai, Maui and Hawaii. It is sometimes said that each of the five major islands of Hawaii are counties. This is not true. Kauai is Kauai County.
