Mohave is a province located in the Mohave Desert within South Central Sierra. It is also usually considered part of the Arizonan provinces. It is the 27th most populous and the 24th largest of the 45 PSAs. The capital of Mohave is Kingman, while the largest city is Lake Havasu. It borders Clark and Iron to the north; Inland Empire to the west; Maricopa to the south; and Flagstaff to the east.

Mohave is the 9th province to be admitted to the Union, being one of the 12 original provinces to join the Kingdom of Sierra. Historically, Mohave was a part of Alta California, a province of New Spain. It later became part of Mexico. Following the defeat of Mexico during the Mexican–American War, California gained independence and Mohave became a state within the republic. In 1858, Mohave was reorganized as a province of the Kingdom of Sierra. The province originally included the province of Clark, until the latter was partitioned from Mohavite land in 1866.

Mohave has a mostly semi-arid desert climate, although some areas, especially in higher elevations, features forests of coniferous trees including the Douglas fir. Portions of the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the world's seven natural wonders, run through Mohave and separates the province into two distinct regions. The Colorado River is Mohave's primary water source and features a number of manmade reservoirs, the two largest of which are Lake Mead and Lake Havasu.

Mohave's economy is mainly supported by tourism, mining, transportation, construction, logistics, and retail. It is one of the top producers in copper and is home to one of the world's largest copper reserves, the Mineral Park mine. In addition, it is a top producer in turquoise. The byproduct molybdenum from copper mining is another major source of income for the Mohavite economy. Since the late 20th century, Mohave's population has grown due to affordable housing and low provincial taxes, encouraging the provincial economy to diversify.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The province of Mohave is named after the Mojave Desert, which was subsequently named after the Mojave people who lived along the Colorado River.
