Hawaii consists of the following counties: Hawaii County (which consists of the "big island" of Hawaii, with over half the state's total land area. It is the site of Mauna Kea, the tallest unbroken base-to-peak mountain in the World, and the famous active volcanos Mauna Loa and Kilauea), Honolulu County (which consists of the island of Oahu, and the entire Hawaiian Archipelago northwest of Kauai County except the Midway Islands, which are not part of the State of Hawaii.

It is also the nation's longest county, extending over 1300 miles from Kure to the southeastern tip of Oahu), Kalawao County, Kauai County (which consists of the islands Kauai and Niihau) and Maui County (which consists of the islands Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui and Molokai).
