Alaska is a state of the USA. After escaping Springfield during Trappuccino, the Simpson family moves to Alaska, driving there on a truck they won in a motorcycle game. Homer already set up a plan to moving the entire family to Alaska in case anything forces the entire family to leave Springfield, and so carried a large poster of Alaska in his wallet. A checkpoint guard gives Homer $1000 as an excuse for oil companies to ravage the Alaskan countryside. The Medicine Woman resides in the state, though she has been seen in Canada, and most likely lives there. Kwazy Klown Airlines lets the Simpsons travel to anywhere free, except Alaska and Hawaii.
