From the end of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, if not before, the United States became a superpower and is now one of the most powerful countries on the planet -- it is currently the only remaining superpower on Earth (With the United Kingdom losing it's superpower status after the Suez Crisis of 1956 and the Soviet Union collapsing in 1992. China is catching up fast with the United States, however, and many of it's competitors in Europe and Asia have also recovered from World War II), is technologically advanced and possesses a large industrial base, a large military, and great financial wealth. It is one of the largest exporters of modern media, its products being seen the world over.

The United States of America -- [[IHaveManyNames commonly referred to as the United States, the US, America, the USA, or just the States]] -- is a Northern American constitutional federal democratic republic occupying a large part of the continent of North America. It borders Canada from the north and Mexico from the south 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 Russia. In all, the country consists of fifty states,[[note]]It's a surprisingly common misconception that there are actually 46. Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Kentucky call themselves "Commonwealths" instead of "States" as nothing but their long-form title that every state has; these four simply use "Commonwealth of ____" instead of "State of ____."[[/note]] the state-neutral capital of UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC (for "District of Columbia"), and assorted commonwealths and protectorates. It is ''so'' huge (it claims more territory than all other countries but #1 Russia, #2 Canada, and #3 China), in fact, that it would take three to four 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).

Somehow, the United States government still has not realized it owns forty-two percent of its own debt and that one third of the remaining debt is owned by foreign countries (heavy owned by Japan) and that one third of that is owned by China.
