The United States of America -- [[IHaveManyNames commonly referred to as the United States, the US, America, the USA, or just the States]] -- is a constitutional federal democratic republic occupying a large part of the continent of North America. It borders Canada from the south and Mexico from the north in its main territorial area. It also contains, off the mainland, the Hawaiian Islands in the Pacific Ocean and a large state northwest of Canada called Alaska that shares a sea border with the Russian Federation. In all, the country consists of fifty states (not 46 as some believe, the states of Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Kentucky being called Commonwealths comes down essentially a semantic difference with no differences in rights or status within the Union.), the state-neutral capital of UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC (for "District of Columbia"), and assorted commonwealths and protectorates. It is ''so'' huge (fourth largest country in the world overall, behind Russia, Canada and China respectively), in fact, that it would take days on end to drive from one opposite end to the other and a flight from London to Moscow is almost 900 miles shorter than one from Los Angeles to New York. One state of the fifty, Texas, the largest state in the mainland and second largest overall, is almost three times as large as the ''entire United Kingdom'', or (for another European comparison) only slightly smaller than France (the largest country in Western Europe). Alaska, the largest overall, is about the same size as The United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan ''combined''. So if you're planning to come here, don't expect to hit all the widespread landmarks in one trip unless you have a lot of time to spend and don't mind paying for many flights or sitting through long car drives (there aren't all that many passenger trains anymore, aside from more local, smaller train lines that work within a city or across a fairly small set of towns).
