You got it right in the ballpark! Alaska has 1,518,801 square kilometers of land or looking at it the other way 586,412 square miles.

You should be working for the state of Alaska tourism department. I could just imagine your ad campaign, "Come to Alaska, the BIIIG-ASSED state!" You could hire comic actor Martin Lawrence to be the person in the commercials saying it!

Just please don't start accusing Alaskan women of being biiig-assed because they are very sensitive about such things. We have a huge number of gyms in town to deal with this modern-day calamity. But to quote Sir Mix-a-lot, a great American songwriter, "But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda!" How did I ever wind up on this subject?? Anyway, I got you the info you asked for.
