The state of Hawaii is actually divided into 8 main islands: Ni'ihau, Kaua'i, O'ahu, Moloka'i, Lana'i, Kaho'olawe, Maui, and Hawai'i. Oahu, Maui and Hawaii are the three largest islands of the eight that make up the state of Hawaii.

Hawaii's ties to the Polynesian culture means that it is heavily influences by Asian developments, and the state continues to develop with modern technology and infrastructure.

Tourism and the military make up the bulk of Hawaii's economy. The state is the Pacific-Asian headquarters for the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Marines and Army. Pearl Harbor is the main site for the military here.

Agriculturally, Hawaii produces sandalwood, sugarcane, macadamia nuts and pineapple, its four biggest exports.

Hawaii's $10 billion tourism industry employs a large number of Hawaii residents, who enjoy Kama'aina rates (special discounts for locals) on everything from breakfast cereal to golf course rates.
