Do states have land that is controlled by the federal government?

    Most states in the US have at least some land that is owned and controlled directly by the federal government.  Nature parks and reserves and military bases and testing grounds are some of the most important categories of federal lands, and Indian reservations are sometimes considered to be federal land as well.  Counting Indian reservations, almost 30% of US soil is considered to be federal land.  This land is, however, unevenly distributed across the country.  Many eastern states have very little federal land, or none at all; meanwhile, very large areas of many western states are controlled by the federal government.
