Idaho (Russian: Айдахо, Aydakho), formally known as the Governorate of Idaho (Айдахская губерния, Aydakhskaya guberniya), is one of the 18 governorates of the Alaskan Democratic Federative Republic. Idaho is one of the only two landlocked governorates of Alaska (the other being Yukon), as well only one of two governorates (aside from Oregon) to border two nations (those being Borealia and the United States).

The governorate originally began as an integral part of Russian Oregon. Much of the early settlers to the region came from the United Kingdom and the United States. It wouldn't be until the late 19th Century that waves of Russians moved into the area, most of whom being farmers of Ukrainian ethnicity. The Governorate of Idaho was formally established in the 1940s.

Owyhee Mountains

The mountains of Idaho.

Idaho has a population of around three million, the vast majority of whom are of Ukrainian descent. Those of Danish, English, German, Norwegian, Russian, and Swedish descent are also prevalent within the governorate. Most Idahoans adhere to the Eastern Orthodox Church; though a sizable minority of Baptists, Catholics, Jews, Lutherans, and Mormons also worship within the governorate.

Much of Idaho is covered by the Rocky Mountains. Despite this, the majority of Idaho's economy is based on agriculture (with the production of potatoes and wheat forming the majority of this field). Throughout much of its political history, Idaho has been a safe governorate for the liberal conservative Evergreens.
