Arizona is a state in the United States of America. It is well-known for its mostly deserted land area and the Grand Canyon. Being the 48th state, it is the last state of the contigous 48 states. Arizona became a state from the Gasden Purchase after the Mexican-American war.

About one-fourth of the state is Native-American reserves. In history, Arizona was a home to many Native Americans, being one of the 4 corners. It was the home to the "Pueblo People", with several tribes, one of them notably being the Hopi Tribe.

Arizona's population is tightly packed in certain areas, and very rural in other areas, with very low population spread throughout the state, as seen on the map. The Phoenix metropolitan area makes up most of it's population, few living in uninhabited deserts within its borders.
